You would be very impressed with the ride in the chop! This 21 is for sale also.

I've been kicking around the idea of one of these little Apaches all weekend. Then my neighbor calls with the find of another 13' Funcat that is in bad shape. I think that this will be project 2 for this year, I want to split the boat down the center and make it wider to see if I can get more stability and speed out of it. Will also change the tunnel geometry a little to really pack the air.

I had one of those and tried to get to run better by moving weights around and different enginge settings/props ect ect and could never get it stop reaching for the sky when you started out or to keep it from walking or squirming around at speeds. I wanted to try to do the split the haul thing and add some more haul to it but it seemed like to much work for what I would have in the end so I just sold it. Let us know if you do it I would like to know if it works

Here's what I've already done to the first one http://www.kodakgallery.com/Slidesho...e&conn_speed=1 The little Stinger makes over 100hp, we hope, will be off the dyno in a few weeks. When I got the boat the fuel tank was up front which helped get it on plane but as you ran the gas down it would mess the balance. I put the battery up front and the fuel right behind the back seats. I also added wedges to get more negative trim out of the motor, when I took these pics I hadn't I didn't have them in, but the wedges are between the motor and the jack plate.
I'm not looking for all out speed since this is really supposed to be my son's (he's 11) boat. He had asked for a mini-version of the race boat. Going to have a 5 blade cleaver made for it once we get it all dialed in. This is definitely a "bugs in teeth" boat, when I run it I can't stop laughing, its such a blast to drive.
