The reverse Chine works real well in the turns at a high speed
There ya go.

With some old style que's this boat is full of current technology if you still like the Apache style this is the boat to look to
Mark,

I looked at thsoe molds when the whole thing folded. Poor guy never saw it coming. I coulda bought those molds for close to $50k. I can only imagine what he spent to build them. I don't remember the guy's name that let me in to check the stuff out but what stories he could tell! It was fugly.

I could not have said it better myself

(I was on the payroll )

Steve has done a wonderful thread on(Iwon't say it) the other site about the building of the tooling for that boat, it really is a great story and he seems to know what he is doing.

I thought the claimed top speeds were low for a twin step. The rough water ride looks rough on the crew with a lot of wet running surface. Not the most nimble performer.

This old video of a 41 Apache is a great rough water powerboat!

Quite the contrary It was a very comfortable ride and actualy it is very nimble in the rough stuff

We were not even pushing hard that day

Matter of fact we kept circling around the slow boats to check on them Forward a few miles then circle back and forward another few miles

was a great day for running the boat

this was the same day Was no better running for the Sabers (Another Apache style hull)

and so was this

Not sure why this says chicago poker run because it is not it is SOTW

The race boat is deffinantly cool

he is running lighter and in much calmer seas then the day we were runnning on lake michigan

Big Ocean water is not as tough to run in as Big Lake Michigan water in my opinion
