Default Cool Apache project.

Interested in having someone convert my 28 Apache into 6 man stand-up configuration.Anyone in the Northeast here interested?Probably need to do some work on the helm.Also would like a nice light weight race hatch{s}Any ideas what a project like this may cost?Lets hear some ideas.

I know the yeller boat is 5 man-up just trying to get the point across.

I always thought that if I was going to design a new interior I would have 2 bolsters up front that were modified to move up or down so that I could sit down without getting wind blasted on a colder day, or stand up/sit down and get wind blasted on a hot day. I would also have slots built into the middle of the right and left bolsters so that I could insert and remove a matching back padding at leisure to create an hybrid 2-3 man bolster. The removable seat wouldn't have a bottom on it but who cares- you won't be sitting in it. I have seen this concept done once before. I think it may have been an outerlimits or a black thunder. The model had twin sidebyside bolsters located on the right, the walk thru was on the left and there were two slots built into the wall and the bolster with a removable extra back support. This concept would bring a lot of buyers if you decided to sell later.

If it had only three regular bolsters up front it might make it harder to sell
