Panther Peanut?

Post by Steve hart »

I am in the process of building a Continental / Roles Royce 0300.
I have had a boat before with a Square nose and it ran in the water pretty good but didn't run the hill at all, I guess it would be called a run-a-long.
I ran a friend of mines boat with an old 10' Panther Peanut and it would run the hell of the hill and it was fast as hell, with that being said. I have tried to find an old panther style Peanut in 11' but no luck, how does the Combee Gore hull compare to the Peanut?

There are hulls out there called a peanut Gores. You talking old school when you talk peanut hulls. I had one with a 90 cont that had to be hand propped!

Dave,
The new starters last about a year from my experience with a 90 on a peanut gore!
