    the Apache had Torques..I guess Sterling bought them Name on boat as I recall...the dealer wouldn't share much info as it was technically sold...I am lucky he took me out...they had just redone the hydraulic streering so I was out with the mechanic and salesman..they wanted a ride too...truthfully I don't know much about Torques..are they decent?

    I wouldn't spend the money on them. Lots of problems. Never quite got it right and that is pretty much put them out of business. $100k is a lot to spend on 1,200 hp. You better make sure you have it right or you will end up with some unhappy customers.

    yea...this boat is "gone" I understand Sterling had to clean up these engines..too complex and troublesome...those merc/Lambs were supposed to be bullet proof

    Nice dream, wake up dude!

    If I had a boat the had 2400 HP and only ran 90, I would shoot myself for ever buying something so slow.

    Then again, that's just one man's opinion.
    Exactly my thoughts about the 2400 HP / 90 MPH part. If I ever have the scratch to afford to keep 2400 horses healthy and fed, they better push me a hell of a lot faster than 90.

    yea....put T-1100 Sterlings in a stepped 42' Fountain or Cig and expect 115mph according to the calculator....105mph in a non stepped 41'

    ...but you have to test the boats to see if you feel the extra speed in hull efficiency is a trade off in another department....

    ...this salesman was in an OL at a Poker run and said it's a different boat compared to these flex...solid...but different...he likes older Cigs/Fountains and Apaches best for rough water..and Stepped boats for most other purposes..

    ...I think because of my budget I will go with a 42' stepped and HP 500's and be happy with 77mph or so.

    one thing that strikes me is Reggie hit 160mph on around 2200HP a 42'er ...but the speed calculator says he would need 3600HP total to do that with the constant for a fast v-bottom....a cat could do it with 2200HP...I wonder what he did to that boat to get it up to that 160mph?????

    Originally posted by LPA2106 didn't want pics of this boat I agreed....all white...big Indian in headress on sides...and i love stepped boats....but if you have the bucks for big power this thing is a rush...and comfy in squirrelly's just not a matter of not having steps but weight and balance....this boat is heavy in front...its made for rough..tough..stuff...possibly the heavier stepped boats are good too...I haven't tested em all..but I agreed with my boss to test 25 boats before buying one...

    ..I love the 42' Executioner Fountain it's a great value

    ..the 38 Cig TG is a favorite, never tried a stepped one..

    ..Pantera's rule if a a 28' is what you want

    ..41' Apache with big motors is pure adrenaline 26' Nova ST Wellcraft T-Strokers does ok

    ..I need to try a 38' TG stepped...and an Apache 41' Stepped...and then an OL...though I don't have the bucks I would love to try one..

    bottom line is you have to keep a broad perspective to what the boat is and the application..

    ..buying the right boat's 97% preparation and 3% execution..
