i have a 24 ft Condor, custom built in 1990 in miami ,that has the same rounded fairing in post 60, but they also added a lexan windsceen for a higher deck appearance, probably because the boat has bolster seats, my hull (7 ft beam )also has the 4in flat pad on the keel. it is currently in for a custom paint job along with raising the x dimension on the transom. this is cool to see other similar hulls, i 'm the only one like it in my area,other than the superboat

my 79 excalibur is very similar to the one in post 60 but not nearly as nicely updated yet. It is nice to see how good it could look. Maybe iI will have to do some mods here.

Nice looking rigs guys.

What is a jaws by P&D. Is that a good boat or just a splashed hull?

IHang Time 27 - I relly like your Excalibur. I looked at one when I couldn't find a Banana boat.

It was early eighties, mint condition. Very low freeboard on those boats. I liked it though.

Banana has an 8 foot beam.

A friend went to buy the Banana called "bottoms up".

apparently the owner owes the marina about $9000 in storage fees over the years, so he is trying to sell it an get his money back.

Both engines run, but I guess the condition is a bit rough.

It almost looks like the Team Banana race boat from 1987.

24 went to Monza for a couple years, then Python used it 80's - 90's . All had the same hull, with monza making only a small change to deck, and Python using major changes to the deck.

Python also built a boat called a Vector which was the same boat with the curved wind fairing. After I think about 88 Jim only offered the Python with the windshield. Cobra also built the same boat in the late seventies to early eighties. Actually the molds for the Vector Python came from Cobra. I am not sure if Python is building boats anymore.
Python also built a splash of the Chris Craft "Chris Cat". He only built I think less than twenty of them. These were built in the mid eighty's.

Never heard of a Jaws by P&D????

They are made by lorequin marine, but maybe they were made by P&D at one time, I tried looking for the same answer, and came up empty handed. I have looked at a few, same kinda deal as far as I could tell, pretty bare though.
