Never......LOL!!! Maybe a Chief someday, but I'd say that is extremely doubtful too.

An Apache by design, build weight and required hp to run a speed is the opposite of what is going around the loops in the new era of offshore... now if racing involved going out into the open eye of a hurricane force seas .... you would see Apache make a dramatic comeback.

Best chance to see an Apache would be in the poker run, race, no chance.

Since most P classes are set up by size and/or speed I'm not sure where one would fit.

Good bet that the class a 41/47 Apache would run in it would get spanked by a boat that can turn or accelerate better. Since top speed would be limited by the bracket.

If you try to race one in extreme v the Lucas boat or one of the Fountains will kill an Apache, even in chop.
