Wasn't Octavian all white? Heard it was dropped in Europe and got really damaged that resulted in a new hull in 98 from Mark.

IMHO...owners preference but its sacrilegious to do it to an Apache when a fountain would have sufficed

Stop beating around the bush.......

That thing is dead set hideous. Someone's taken an awesome offshore boat and made it one of the ugliest pieces of fiberglass imaginable.

From the owners point of view, it's probably the most amazing fishing machine on the water and the envy of all his fisho mates.

I do get the bit about heritage but different strokes for different folks.
