Here are a few more pics.

We do have a customer of ours racing in a 36' Pantera Survivor "non stepped" in this series ( Fair and white ). They have been very fast but have had drive issues. They are going to build up on the running gear and get ready for next season. From what they tell me every race this year has been very rough.

I'm assuming safety maybe with a little better explaination.

Just a guess here, but when boats sink, it's typically transom first. The bow traps air and stays afloat. The orange is for collision avoidance...
