Default nice apache

Here are my criteria and how I plan to use the boat:

Usage: Trailering to Lake Michigan, Chain O Lakes, possible LOTO. Looking for durability cuz I know it gets big out there.
Size: 28-32
Power: twins, just in case one decides to quit on the lake... unless someone can make a really good case for a single. Looking for something 700-800 hp or so in total, I guess.
Speed: 70+?
Price: Want to spend $30,000-40,000
Year:90 or newer

I would also like a boat that is party (and female ) friendly, so it has to have a bench in the back with a sun/swim pad + platform. A cabin is a must too... No stripper race boats.

Lookin @ the Apache:
Plumbing looks a little funky, water and fuel lines etc. but overall she looks good the triple axle trl. is a plus bet it could be had for low 30's just my .02 p.s. make sure you get rid of the picture "in the -- mirror" way up in the v-berth or should I say girth LOL and good luck ! do the survey ! the 29 fountain looks a-ok too.would prob.b-the-fast-1 or ck. out add #18970 on OSO a single screw ---- Fountain; get the Apache it's a real boat IMHO dual ram steering good ! - 700hp ? from a 496ci that must be way up in the RPM's

no, joe had it right, that one just went right over your head. like their ads, fountain tends to exaggerate a bit. that 29 is not a true 29. they add the swim platform and beak nose to their overall length measurement. that 28' apache brave would dwarf the 29' fountain parked side by side. sure it will run, but only in "fountain water"(flat) and we are seeing less and less of those days lately

Hey bud, if you are thinking about that 29 Fountain, maybe you will like this, I hear they handle the rough like a seizure. This one might be a little tougher to trailer than that 29 fountain you are looking at.

Heres a cool old 8.8 meter. 454 mags with bravo carbs and thunderbolt trannies. I think the Fountain 8.8 is longer than a 29 fever but i may be wrong there. I dont think they measured the 8.8 with the swim platform.

The new guy always has to take some abuse! Hey Matt, whats your opinion of the old thunderbolt trannies? I think they are comparable to the velour drive borg warners.
