I do have to wonder what the cost would be to get it back in proper shape after sitting for so long. Rebuild engines, drives and trans if they are not seized. Replace all electronics. Replace the cockpit upholstery and probable rotted wood. If the boat has the bilge drain plug installed all that water is possibly causing the stringers and transom to rot. Not to mention that lift is not going to hold all that standing water weight for long.

I was shocked to see so many abandoned boats just outside the channel on my recent visit to Bonita / Ft Myers area. Most were snail boats so I wasn’t to upset. LOL
Its most likely junk. It has been sitting on that lift without moving for at least 10years. I talked to Dave the owner years before and he told me it had a motor going bad.

I boated in that area weekly, it never moved.

No, my daughter had to have surgery at All Children’s in St Pete.
Things are slowly getting back to normal. Missed the thing in Estero but I’m still gonna run down there and try to get a look in a few days.

I went and had a few beers this evening with my buddy who sold his shop and land to Dave the owner. He gave me the Full Skinny on it.

The funny thing is someone with deep pockets and no intrest in resale value will buy this boat and rebuild it. Its just unknown until the right buyer comes along and the owners are willing to part with it. This type of boat and project is not for everyone but its a classic and will always be an Apache.

Apache whatever.

Its still a old heavy dog that needs a minimum of a $100 Grand just in machinery to even begin to bring it to what it was if it has not had water sitting in it.

Even if it has not the combination of humidity, rainwater and it has been sitting on that lift less than a 1/4 mile from the Gulf for 10years without moving spells disaster..

You have to Pickle motors down here if your not going to use them for a couple years if you live within a few miles from the Gulf , or their frozen Junk..

If someone gave you the boat and $20t thousand to take it you would be much further ahead buying a nice running twin step Cig with 750s and some XRs that will run triple digits effortlessly .

I see the quality restos Hoo Doo does on here. Unfortunately the only lucrative return on it would be to turn it into a Center console.

Ok, I have another excuse to be in Ft Meyers area again this Wednesday.
So I’m going to try to get permission to check out the derelict 41 in Bonita.
