"Liquidator" was a 27' Signature with a single Big Block and I think a "Stern Power" Drive.
"Diamond Don"- a 40' Cigarette
"Beep Beep"-the boat in tow-a 38'wood Cougar Cat

Panther:

Are you sure about the year.........? 1977 seems about three years early.

Default I think it is 77'

T2x, I think is was 77' because a few of the pictures have the year printed on the back of it. There are also a few picutres that were printed is post card form, and they all say August 77'

Robert G, Sorry, I am not the guy from the race boat Panther. Just a boater who happens to have a Panther.

Even though I was younger, I remeber those days. They were all crazy.

Panther,

Any pics of a boat called "Manhattan Express"? When I was about 10 I remember watching that boat go by every weekend as I floated motionless in my parent's sailboat, saying to myself "one day I'm gonna get one of those".

Default Have to check on that

I will have to check on the pictures of the Manhattan express. I have a crap load of other older pictures at home, but I can't scan them at work.

Anyone else have some older pictures?

Default Wild Turkey

From what I hear, Wild Turkey may still be around. I had an old friend of mine tell me that he saw it up in Long Island sound a few years ago.

Anyone know what happened to that boat?
