If you don't "love" the boat, cut your losses and sell.
If you don't "love" the Cig you want to buy, it will likely see the same fate as your Apache.
Cut out the middleman and just buy a cruiser - that'll be the next thing for you.
Sorry, I'm kinda hardcore about classic offshore boats. If you're not gonna finish her to what she deserves, cut your losses, and hand her to someone that has the respect to treat her right.
You're the one that started this project, .....
I agree...

Just give her to me

It wasn't too long ago when folks would inquire about john johns boat and you would innocently jump on the tread slamming his boat and pimping yours. Not a class act! Long time posters would vouch for the boat, did'nt matter. So, hows the flippng boat thing working out?

Yup it would make a nice home for my pair 454s sitting in the storage shed.

Waterdogs, who the hell do you think you are, I never talked bad about John's boat!!!!, I always said my Apache was for sale!!, everythings for sale. What does this post have to do with Johns Boat, anyway, John wrecked his own boats sale with his ramblings!!! I never bought my Apache with intentions of flipping it, I bought it to use, but it took more money and work then I thought it would and when I lost the motors I lost the drive to fix it, I love the boat but I just dont have it in me to finish it!!!

I just saw Johns boat, im guessing someone bought it in MI because it looks like he is looking to flip it. I know john was asking 28k or somewhere around there. Now i saw the boat listed for 59900. Whats is that guy on crack?????

No one ever said anything derogatory about that boat. No one. There were numerous discrepancies in JJ's representations about it, which were pointed out. There were also several first-hand impressions offered about the boat's condition, which were the the opinions of the people who actually saw the boat. Then there were several honest assessments about what one could expect when buying an older Apache 28 in the $20K range and what you could reasonably expect to get and what you'd have to do to make it what you'd want it.

JJ got roughed up because he was a complete and utter tool.

Now you decide to take a poke at a guy who has a bit of misfortune and has made a couple of wrong moves? Nice. You're a class act, right up there with JJ.
