Sounds like the same story as the guy that was trying to sell the lightening. How many years did the lightening sit?? 1 off boat will be difficult to sell to say the least. I bet it sits or the owner takes a substantial hit to get a sale. True, maybe a little easier to sell than the lightening but no way at that price.

Very true... but on the bright side, look how happy the new owner is with the boat.

Gino is the only guy that can afford the gas for the trip hull that hasn't been rigged yet and he's flush with boats right now!

Good post VonB ... FWIW ... I think the overseas idea might be worth pursuing for this piece

Maybe I will win the lottery. Boy that thing would look sweet in my Slip.

So Chief is done? I was hoping to see more of them. I go by the website once a month, but never any change.

Nice boat but with my hard earned lottery money I would buy Hot Duck's 45 Apache with a Gladiator to keep on the side!

The 45 is a one off boat with race history and it looked way cool in Jacksonville last weekend.

Boat runs just under 100 with current props

I saw it with the engines in place, and transom assemblies in early '05, with the final rigging taking place. Granted, I did not see it fully rigged, but it was damn close. I can't believe it would take a year to finish rigging.
