We got to see the Chief last summer coming out of Kelley's.

It cut in front of us was straight getting it and then it was gone. Pretty awesome!

Those Sabers' are skipping those wave tops pretty damn nice! The Chief, looks heavy and cumbersome.........everybody draw your own conclusions. It always seems to be for sale....that's your first clue.
That is my final post concerning the Chief...because I'm sure this will go on and on forever.

Like I said it is a heavy boat and we were not running hard that day since i was the permotor we were watching out for participants saftey

Boat is a great rough water boat Just not as much fun or as fast in calm seas

It is not eveyones cup of tea but it is a cool boat that you feel very safe in at 90 MPH

It is not a Saber it is Not and Apache it is a Chief
"You seen one ... You have seem em all"

For the right person it is a great boat it is not for everyone and no argument it is not the fastest but You feel real safe and comfortable in the boat going 90 in heavy seas

That certainly is a positive and a negative with this boat.
