I don't care if it was Aronow reincarnated, that's wrong. Buy some big deck boat if you want to tote a couple dozen people. Why deface a legend?

Plus, I wouldn't want to ride up there anyway, unless it was on a smooth lake. Sitting down, that far forward? Bet that's a nice ride at speed on rollers.

Boat was a European 41...All black 6 pack called "Shaka".
It was re-done in Florida, turned into a bow-rider, and re-painted with the original banner boat graphics.
As previously stated, the owner is a Canadian former powerboat racer with a long list of Apache's under his belt.

I was told that the boat will be mostly a "lake" boat, but....the center of gravity on the 41's is right where the fairing meets the deck, ie, right where the front passengers will sit .....

The boat is beautiful except for the hole in it.

I saw the boat in KW. It is perfect in every way except that damn hole in the nose. That sh!t ain't right. But, it ain't my boat, so in all actuality, I give 2 sh!ts.
