Just bought the boat a few weeks ago and trying to figure out what I have, good,bad, indifferent??  I saw one similar on Jetboatperformance.com having the panther removed- I can't find much out about them- Thanks

Looks like another eliminator splash (to me anyway). The problem with many boat companies that came through the 70's is that they all splashed or copied a handfull of others that made the original molds . Could have been a splash of a good boat or a turd . How about some pictures of the back and bottom if possible .

Another question . Why is it sitting next to Richard Van Beenan's "PRIME TIME "

I will see if I can take some pics of the bottom and back as well- Thanks for your help

I am not sure who Richard Van Beenan is, but the boat next to mine is a buddy of mine.  I do not know the history of his boat, but I know he has owned it for a few years and has completly rebuilt the boat from one end to the other-  Sorry new to the whole scene ???

That's a sweet looking bubble deck. I like the lines of that boat, it's like a charger with a Sanger bubble on it. What's the back look like?

I will shoot some close up pics tomorrow of it- The look caught my eye and did it for me,  it feels like it is laid up a lot thinner than my buddies challenger and our old Caribean.

El , we have owned /sold and "rigged" a few Apache's over the years ,Always liked them, alot nice line lots of potential very "Eliminator-esque". Camomans is a very fast boat. Every one I've ever seen had a Panther jet (as did Johns originally) I did reject another one recently because of a 3' lenghtways chine crack under the drivers seat area. I've attached a link for you I found on MIC this morning base on My DMV records ,Hope this helps Let me know if I can help you further   Tom

This link works; if you haven't seen the 70's Panther vids you have to watch; very funny.
