A couple of friend's said they saw a Kachina Condor (sp?) and said it was exactly the same as my Mach 1 Tunnel. Anyone got a pic of a Kachina Condor?

Yes. A guy that worked for Mach 1 Boats started up Wildercraft. Wildercrafts have a very different bottom and there's no pod on the back like a Mach 1.

I just got a 1985 Kachina Condor. It looks exactly like your Mach 1. Drydock Marine in Phoenix, Az told me that Kachina bought the molds from Mach 1 to make Condor. Supposedly Mach1 copied the Southwind dragster bottom. I haven't had mine out yet. What are the pros and cons with this hull? Any set-up info?

No sh!t!?! Yep, they're exactly the same (Kachina Condor & Mach 1 Tunnel).

The bottoms are nothing like a SWTD, I've looked.

Thanks for the PM 84Condor! :)devil

Not very many of these boats around to say the least, freakin' rare is closer to the truth. Therefore not much set up info is available on them. Pro's and Con's are easy though. Pro = it's a tunnel. Con = not many around to share set up info on them. Plus another possible con is the bottom itself, still better than a V hull, but the outside "chines" (I have no idea what I'm talking about) aren't level with anything on the bottom and it will lose it's air entrapment sooner than a SWTD and most other tunnel hulls.

Check the pic and maybe someone that does know what they're talking about will set me straight.

Nice photo of Mach 1 transom and tunnel area.The Condor I have has the aluminum plates running back to the end of the pump pod. The outside sponsons are angled up about five degrees while the Mach 1 is flatter. Condors are rare. I do not know about Mach 1s. SWTD seem popularl. It would be nice to hear from a Condor or Mach 1 owner who has dialed one it pretty well.

my plates too come all the way back to the end of the pump pod, just one of the few differences i guess!
