Just speaking for me personally - that would be my price range for a boat, but those blower motors would scare me away. My budget is not nearly big enough to run the risk of something going "boom."

IMHO, the big difference between the boats is this- the Cig is going to be a bit lighter and faster with equivalent power. The Apache is the wave-crusher.

What does the Apache not have that you're looking for?

In this game, everything goes boom- just a matter of when.

Single-carb B&M's aren't boost demons. If they're on solid long-blocks, you have no more an issue with motor damage than you do with losing a fuel pump and leaning a N/A motor out. On the other side, I've seen plenty of home-brew and semi-pro big-inch motors that were a catastrophe waiting to happen.

I have nothing bad to say about the Apache i owned at all.
Its a "been there, done that" situation and now i want a Bullet. The Bullet is heavyer, 3 feet longer, and rides like a top gun which I would also consider if i had a bigger slip.

From what i understand, those motors were built by MRD. Good reputation as far as i know...
