Hmm, I post this once again then.

Hi,
Why dont you have a look at this project boat.
Scroll down and you might find what you are looking for plus that it has a cool history.

Good luck and let us know when you find the boat you want/bought.

I know where you can get one with new paint that is running with 454 and TRS on a trailer for around $9000.

I have no idea which boat it is and I haven't seen pics but the guy who bought my last Sutphen has the boat up in Mass. and is about to paint it. He called me and asked if I had anyone interested so I told him I would spread the word.

NEWS FLASH......my son found and just purchased for a restoration project......banana boat co, hull # 1.

Only difference is..... it now has a big block vs the small block we originally built it with.

I told my good friend Bobby Saccenti about it, and he ground his teeth....he knows where his Apache hull # 1 is and he wants it back.....but the original owner still has it, loves it and keeps it in great shape.

I've got the 24'er that Airdog listed here last fall, lot's of boats out there at great prices so I may pass it on for what it cost me as I may up grad to something else. If got my fiberglass guy comimg by within a week or so to see about doing some minor touch-ups before I paint it. I've also got two 200GT Loopers with minor mods also. I'm not 100% certan I selling but you never know? The hull is in great shape, just needs seats and paint.
