Alec is going to ride on an Apaches Lil cousin (My old Cig) next week in a Poker Run on the Chesapeake. He'll understand then.

From what I remember....Ole GlassDave was a hurtin pup that day!!!!

Alec Sorry I was out for a second. Because The guys who went around and got a splashed mold somewhere then tried to compete with Apache in their own arena and forget that.

Now Thad was bringing something different into the game and was going to try with a 2003 Model , Example the deck one can see the old flat deck in there somewhere BUT like the old and new Thunderbirds and a modern building system ,Rigging and right down the line with a guarantee he would have a mechanic on the boat that day if a problem arose from a defective gauge or the like.

No the 36 and down were built different, Resin bucket LOL I heard that before, one has to see a bagged laminate to understand or carry the disposables from the bagging to the dumpster this is what gets left on shore .

looks like an ambitious project.


Ya know no matter how bad a boat if smashed, crashed and generally F'ed up people always ask me . . . . . . can it be fixed? . . . . of course it can . . . . it can always be fixed, its only fiberglass
