It's a very interesting thread you've started.

25 years ago I sat on a dockside bar in Pompano Beach (the Sands) with my wife, watching the Apaches drive by and we dreamed of owning a boat like that.

15 years ago when I started AT I would have never imagined my boats would be in the running with the Cigs, etc....

What a compliment!

I can only respond with one simple statement:

Please come to Fort Lauderdale and give me the privilage to take you out for a ride. I give you my word that when we get back to the docks you will look at me and say:

"That was amazing!"

Then, and only then, will you see the difference.

Anytime you are in my neck of the woods, Call me!

I would say the 37 and the 38 gun would be comparable. The 39 cig is staggard and with the 700 package is hard to beat, but it's also a lot more $$$.

The guns also are much more simple in the cabin. although I think Phil would build whatever you wanted in one if that was your choice and $$.

Best to take a ride in all 3. I also believe that you become some kind of cult member when you buy an AT

My Boats: 2007 37' Active Thunder SOLD

In early summer of 06 i saw some pics. of Sydwayz boat "Monsoon" on OSO in a thread about side by side bolsters. At the time i had a 35' Fountain that i had outgrown because of its ride and cabin. At the Jammin on the James Poker Run in July of 06 i got aboard Monsoon with Brian and liked what i saw but still needed to check them out further. Pat was there for the Poker Run and i talked to him in length at the banquet. He invited me down for a test ride and 2 weeks later we drove to Pompano and took him up on the offer. We went for a ride in "Extreme Energy" which now belongs to OSO member Boatfreak. When we got to Hillsboro Inlet I would have turned around in my Fountain but Pat put shoved the sticks ahead and after some green water over the bow,deck and windshield we were running 65 in 5-6s and the boat just rode like nothing i had ever been in. It lands flat and dry and just keeps on trucking. When we got back in the inlet I asked Pat where i was in line,how much deposit he need and wrote him a check. Take him up on the offer for a ride and you'll be sold

Classy post, way to stand behind your product!

I'd like to go for a ride sometime when I'm down that way. Funny you should mention Apache..... (here goes this thread!!)....by all of the cheerleading that goes on, one would think that you've already outdone them!!!

Not a 37, but the first 33 resides in Mass. In storage until late April. Much closer to NY than FL. We do alot of boating in SE Mass and RI. You're more than welcome to come up and take a look.

Been there....did that....sold!

And I had driven and was looking at 38 TG's at the time.

Pat, it's about time you changed your boat description. Can't wait to see that one!
