I hear ya Dave re the speed thing, and I agree.
Lets talk $$$ and cents for a sec.
Do these things get any PREMIUM on sale, because of the rep and the history or because everyone wants to go faster in smooth water with less HP it all washes out ?
GGGEEEZZ something just sparked here.
Lorne Libel started a cement company up here in Canada a few years back.
Apache Cement. Now I got it.
Performance boat buying habits are far different these days then when the 'ol wave crushers roamed the earth
Re incarnations like the 42 Saber are great boats without any doubt but would never pace something like a 42 Fountain in sales or any of the higher production hulls. Tell ya the truth if i had the means i would own Jassmans diesel 43 Nortech above all others, that boat is way cool and perfect for me. Noretch still builds boats on the wet heavy side and probably the closest thing these days to how the Apache's were built (this is meant as a compliment to you Nor Techies )

How is the Hustler layed up? In all talks of great boats they are never mentioned??
Steve you are a wealth of knowledge - you should be writing a book or teaching.... I can see it now "boat building 101"
You are judged by the company you keep!
Steve 1, were the smaller apaches built with the same materials as the bigger ones? Obviously they weren't built the same as the ones with carbon fiber and kevlar, but what about the resin buckets?
please read the fine print
