Don't think a Cig could go fast enough to get that far up into the trees

"1982 Don Aronow creates the Apache 41 (Never gets a good night's sleep again)."

LOL ain't that the truth.

T2x is right on the money. This fact that gets lost in the "Apache Wars (tm)". The 41 Apache mold was designed and built by Don Aronow's crew shortly after starting USA racing at the old Signature building. A 41 Apache is basically a stretched version of the Ajac Hawk race boat. Look at an old 38 cig hull and a 41 Apache hull, other than length, not much different. The straight bottom cigs were, and still are, righteous boats. Todays Cigs with the new Nasa designed and patented "Flip Over" technology are a different story.

3) some of you guys need to lighten up.
1) No, but with a name like that, on an offshore boating site, you would assume that you enjoy the sport moreso than the average Joe. Just my .02.

2) Not much, since you dont care to converse with and didnt recognize some of the prominent figures of the sport that are here in this thread.

3 ) No worries here. If I was any lighter, Id be a Fountain
