My Apache started out as a great project and boat for me to rebuild, the wife thought I would need something to work on( that was not expensive) over the winter months, but when the boat got home, I decided to make it perfect!!, I went for the hull and interior work first!!, my mistake, when I bought the boat it ran( had motor survey done complete), so I figured everything would be ok with the motors, first mistake. The repairs and resto work to the hull and body, gauges, wiring, and motors added up faster then I thought it would, I used all my own money, no loans!! After it was all done and we go it in the water and I got 2 runs out of the boat, and the motors went it really discuraged me, and made me hate the boat in some ways!! I have enuff into this boat to have a very good running newer boat( or a hell of a down payment), that does not need 2 new motors to be used!!, summer is over, and I spent it working on my boat, not running it. I do not get but 1 day off a week, so my time is limited to how much boating I can do anyway. I should have bought a complete turn key running boat, I love the Apache boat, and I really enjoyed the ride( as short as it was) If I had it to over again I never would have restored the hull and body, I would have done the motors and wiring!!! I will be listing the boat on Ebay tonight, I think someone will get a great classic boat! I guess I got use to newer turn key boats, the last couple of boats I had owned were all newer. I think who ever gets the boat will be very happy, it looks better in person then in pics!!
