This is a picture of a 1988 24 Pantera in Puerto Rico racing in BIG WATER.It WON every race that year and the Championship.The boat is owned as a pleasure boat now and still in Puerto Rico running in BIG water.There is no bay located there.All open ocean.

This is a picture of the 1992 South East APBA B-class champion and 2nd in National points that year with APBA.

This boat was a 28 powered with a single 800 HP Hawk Marine engine with EFI .It had a number 4 speedmaster drive with the motor mounted on rails that would allow the motor to be moved forward or back depending on water conditions with drive shafts.

This boat smoked the field in B-Class that year and beat all the twin engine boats with one motor.

This is a pic.of a newspaper article with the Tunnel Vision Pantera team takin the win at the Holiday Isle race in 1992.2nd place was another Pantera 28 with twin 600 HP Hawks.We also won in A-class at this race in a 24 Pantera called Plum Loco.

I was very proud that we kicked ass that day.

This is a picture of my family and I at the Miami Airport waiting for my Father to arrive from New York after breaking the Miami to New York outboard record in 1978.I was 7 years old at tthe time and my Sister in the pic was 6 years old.
