This is a picture of a 1999 28 Pantera that I built for BJ Maher a member of this board at the 1999 Key WEST World championship running out near the wall in 6-8 footers wide open.

Hey Guys,


In case anybody wants to know whose idea for this thread to be started. The credit should go to Fred A.K.A. TOO OLD.

This is one of the most impressive photos of a Pantera in race action.

This is my Father on the outside leg of the reef at the 1980 Key West World Championships.

If you look closely you will see the 28 starting to come out on top of the water after being completely submerged.It was powered with triple Mercs.The boats rub rail on the port side was completely torn off.My Father lead the race until a motor let go.
