Yes, the firefox was just a newly designed deck on a boat that they already made and I think but am not sure if that it was a squadron model.

When you get down to it, Jim at Python actually pulled the mold from a boat called a cobra. I have only heard of the company that sells cats, weather or not this is the same company or not, I don;t know, but if you put a Python a trailer next to a Pantera and look at the design of the hulls, it is like a mirror image of one another. The Pantera is a little bit heavier but other than that the same.

All great boat! Some of these mold and designs have exchanged hands so many time that no one can keep track.

Doesn't matter to me where the bottom design came from as long as it works and builder have built a quility boat.

Thanks for the history lesson.
