Just a little bit of nice to know history for all of you Apache guys.
Kathy and I were sitting around on Saturday night with Bobby and Holly and talking about old times. He spoke of when he and Benny decided to strech the 41 to a 47. They along with Tommy Evans would leave from 188th st and run wide open to Haulover cut and then go out and play in any conditions to get the feel of the boat and get it ready for the up and coming season. I'll talk to bobby and try to get some pictures of the 1st 47 that was built and rigged by Tommy Evans.
He said the 47 was just that much nicer than the 41, it was like riding in a cadillac as opposed to a chevy in the rough snot.

Tom, Kathy, the boat looks great!! Thanks for the compliment. Were you able to get any good data from the prop testing? Take care, David

David, We ran 80 but way too much RPM with the 28 labs between 56000 / 58000 and I have to get the RPM down between 53000 / 55000. I brought the 30's back with me and am having those set up with Brett from BBLADES and they will be ready for this week-end when I fly back down.
How is Krista feeling? Im sure you both cannot wait for the baby. Do you know if it is a girl or a boy???? How is little David doing? Give Allison a hugg for me. By the way, this is Kathy, Tom is yelling all the information to me. Say hi to everyone for us. Kathy

Hey Tommy! Looks like you guys are having a good time. Nothing like getting lessons from the best. Watch out for the monkeys and see you in a couple of weeks....
