I dig the graphics, kind of a modern interpretation of classic Indian related images!

Think it's a awesome boat either way. glad it gets to show what it's really made of.
Thad Allen's attempt at starting a "new" Apache boat company (and failed lawsuit against Mark McManus) did produce a very nice 41' mold and top deck. I know as a fact that a top deck was pulled off the molds..not sure if they ever produced a hull. They were also building a "one off" step bottom that never was completed. Had Thad Allen dropped the lawsuit and chase for the name "Apache" and focused on finishing a quality product, he may have still been in business. He, with Bob Sacenti's help, put together a great team of people that unfortunately never got to see their hard work completed...

NFW. Figured your azz for dead by now, lol.

But you have the history dead-nutz on. I almost bought them for $50k. Too narrow though.

WTF does it matter what happened in the past between Thad, Mcmanus and Ronald McDonald. If you want to fight over the history Apache, there are already 236 different threads about it already in existence. The fact is the 41 worked and worked well. How many companies make or made it original or with tweaks? the Washington co., pantera, banana, sabre, apache, new tech, chief, Im sure Im missing a couple.... (ok so the 24x7 hull still has it beat but its getting close)

This thread is about Chief, a boat built by Bob s. a man many consider an Icon in the sport. Its about a current build, not history, not leather jackets, etc.... Those threads have all been beat to death.

PERIOD.
Hey bub, it seems like you have a personal issue with Bob Saccenti so I suggest you take it up with him directly. I can provide you with his phone number if you like. Better yet, stop by and pay him a visit, I'm sure he'd be happy to see you.

Take the garbage to the Apache section where it belongs. Enough said, this is a Chief thread.

Love seeing how these boats are built so Thankyou for taking the time to document and share it with us Panther.

Was just reading another thread on venting the steps and someone mentioned that the chief has it. If you can post some pictures of this, would like to see how it's done on this hull. Thanks agin
