Hey Tank it's been a while. The "Tsunami" is good, on the last run this summer, she was hitting 95 in big waters with ease.
I know there are pictures of the 54' on the Apache Forum, this place is as good as any for comments and views of these unique boats. are you getting enough time on the Cig. Duna

This boat is not my taste but then again did you buy your boat because someone else liked it?

Hi Dunarunner!
Have not seen you on the boards lately.
Can you tell us any info on how the padded keel performed?

The boat runs Triple 1200s Supplied by Teague.
The boat is not for military use or Poker Runs. Pure pleasure is the order of the day.
The boat perfoms as you would expect a boat of this calibre to do. She turns tight. Takes off and lifts on the plane fast.
Excellerates fast in the high RPMs and is a sure solid ride.
Enjoy the Images.

The speed of the vessel is yet to be determined.
As with all boats, a shake down period is the norm, these picture's were taken on the last of four seperate sea trials conducted to assure the vessels function. The seating arrangement and final layout of the boat is being considered
The cockpit will sit or stand 4 to 5 people. The boat was built to handle heavy sea conditions as with all Apaches boats. Duna.
