Should be worth about $250K when you are done!

You don't have the same thoughts on the other thread...... .......so he must be on drugs?

I think when I put it up on the market, it will sell for good money, it is a classic Apache, that I spared no expence in restoring, I dont think Chris was reffering to my work or had any comments directed at my boat

don't want to insult you with a low offer...what are you hoping to get in a buyers market such as this?

OK - you're starting to pizz me off.
Please tell me you're gonna keep the boat.
You've put too mubh work in it to sell it.
If you sell it now, I'll start calling you Fred Cecil - and that's a pretty dirty title around here.
but it sure is "trick".

The boat is looking great.
Enjoy it.

Throw that junk away. Put the Merc chit back on. You won't see any HP gains, and it will be harder to find parts if you need them away from home.

If you don't take my advice, then you better buy a backup blue box and keep it in the cabin for that day you aren't expecting.

Boat looks awesome. I wish I had the cashflow to do one like that.

Glad to hear you didn't need new engines. Was the rust just from condensation, leaky breather. If you are getting a little water on top of the head when it is running and you don't think it is condensation, you might check the head bolts. They will leak sometimes.

Look forward to hearing how that thing runs.
