Yeah, I like that, not bad. I'd like to see all the manufactures move to that, Baja, Sonic, PQ, Checkmate, Fountain, etc. Its just easier and more pleasing to the eye.

Hey, Pepe would admit that his 24 is for inland use only.
I guess that world record Miami to NY run was all done inside... not.
And the dash on the pantera has plenty of room for everything needed to run it.

Maybe i'm beating a dead horse here... sorry.

If I was in the market for a new boat, I would be pretty hard-pressed to choose one or the other. Whichever you choose, you can't go wrong!

joe, how is the new 32 comming along, that looks like a boat that would really do it for me, I have been looking for a while to step up to something bigger, but not to big. I really liked the new 30' cig, but just can't see 200k for a 30' v bottom.

wow....we go from the question of differences between a 28 Active Thunder and a 28 Pantera.To an ad for the Pantera 36.That should answer the question well.

First of all I don't know anything at all about the Active Thunder boat. From everything I hear, it is a very good boat built by reputable people.

I do know about Pantera though. I raced against Pepe 30 years ago in boats that we made using the best material available at that time.

There were some guys who came into the sport and you took one look at them and their equipment and you knew right away....this guy is not going to be a problem.

That was never the case with Pepe. He came prepared to win...every race and at every venue calm or rough. You took him seriously, because you knew that he built a boat that was going to last and he took his time in putting it together.

Back in the days before really big money came along, preparation was a big factor in winning. Pantera was always well prepared. This should be an important factor in your decision for your next boat. As the man said, you get what you pay for and that can mean time as well as money. If a Pantera takes a little longer to make, the boat you are getting is that much better prepared for any kind of water.

Experience cannot be purchased,it has to be earned. Give some hard thought to a Pantera before you make that final choice.
In all my years reading posts after post I have never read such a well said statement on facts in choosing a boat. Here is a picture of my 28 Pantera race boat......
