Take a closer look at Joe's first post with picture to see what kind of power it had in it at the time.

Hey Caincando 1,

Last I heard the boat was located in Maryland and is all white since we sanded off the paint work on the boat before it got sold.Lenny Kravitz the singer owned it for a while after Ice but did not have much time to use it.It was powered with twin 502-465 HP Mercruiser packages.Top speed back then was in the 86 MPH range.

In reference to the purple interior Ices boat had a purple glo color that was used that was much brighter than the shades of purple in the late 80s.The purple glo vinyl got very popular and we still use it time to time on new customers boats.

I have delivered many boats with purple interiors over the years.

The deck paint design was off of a tatoo that Ice has on his leg.

Regards,

Jo

Hey Guys,


I found one more pic. of Ice while I was delivering his boat.He ordered Ft. Apache Marina to drive down a marina forklift down 188 ST. to pick up his boat at my factory and take it back to Fort Apache to fuel up and splash for the first time.

This picture was taken while we were located in Thunderboat row.



The first time we met Ice he was wearing a purple cape and driving a $ 600,000 Gemballa Porsche.My Father told him I am glad you will be a new Pantera owner but I think your rap music sucks. He told my Father that was the first time anybody had told him that.

We have remained friends over the years.

Regards,

JO
