That's a flat deck Revolution also known as an "Evolution". There were 4 built. It was a Revolution bottom with a custom flat deck on it. They were also the platform for the Tiger. And yea, I'd say it is basically the same boat as a 41 Apache. A big heavy resin bucket and big water killer!

I remember reading somewhere one was very light, and bounced around like a cork in the waves?

There was this one...
The "Hardway" one that was recently in the classifieds
An all white one that was in Miami for a long time, went to the Bahamas and reportidly burned
And one other that I can't think of.

I raced Cigarette Lady a couple times for Anna & Morris, would that be one of the missing race boats even though it had the only ever 3 bubble deck?

The one you and I are refering to is the same boat. It either got totalled in a hurricane or caught fire. I can't remember which but I know it's gone.

Jeff Cheng (OSO founder) had it listed a few years ago. It sat on a hoist in the Biscayne Bay area for a few years. Boat was really cool looking. All white with dark grey interior, big power and 6s. Wish I kept the pics of it. Someone around here must have pics of it.


JBonz, thanks for the pic. The "Hardway" boat is easily the nices of the 4 built. Things all business! Wonder what Ocean Performance is asking for it.

Joe, all four of the "Evolutions" had the flat deck. The 4th boat is the one AO31 is refering too I'm sure. Had a funky 80's paint job like the one sitting at Lake Cumberland that JJ posted.

Yes, I heard that about the Lake Cumberland boat too. Craig Barrie raced it for a while and it was squirly from what I've been told. I don't know if it was the set up, layup or just this boat (and not all Evolutions).
