The Chief gives driving lessons to Tommy

Tommy and Bobby were out on Saturday doing some prop testing. Bobby gave Tommy an education on how to run in rough water. Tommy is still sore from hanging on yesterday. Nothing like having the chief at the throttles!!!!
It was an easterly wind with 5-8 footers. Bobby made the Apache dance all the way from Ft lauderdale to Haulover inlet, completed in about 15 mins. I just wish I was one of them on the beach watching those nuts go by, there was no other powerboats out there. No big deal for Bobby, they averaged 65-75 all the way. WHAT A RIDE THAT MUST HAVE BEEN!!!!!!! Here are a few pictures of them coming into Harbour Towne. Kathy

Kathy,
Great pictures! Wish we could have had some action shots. That had to be a blast having Booby S show you what your boat can do. When are you guys bringing the boat back home?

Smile Re: The Chief gives driving lessons to Tommy

Good morning everyone--------yes, the sun pad is purple, really gives the boat some great lines. The door is also purple with the Apache logo stitched into it. We also changed the deck hatches from smoke to white. It really makes a difference in the appearance.
The boat was owned by David Hess out of Richmond. He now owns a 28 Apache that Bobby built for him. We are in contact with with him and his dad often. Super nice people.
The boat will be in Lauderdale for another month to month and a half. It really does not get nice up here until July anyway (if that!!!).
Have a great day and hope to see you all out on the water this summer.......
Kathy and Tommy
