That was my first thought, they have a pretty unmistakable look. Heard they are good rough water boats.

The back stage to the site does not have a Challenger section.

It is a nice looking boat! The last week or 2 I have seen it on my way to work everyday.
Definitely a lot of boat for the price.

They are great boats... Keep in mind this is the classic cigarette bottom, which has the changes that appeared in the 39 squadron minus the 17 degree transom. I was at the challenger plant right after he got these. Also keep in mind that the 42' version of this boat (texas thunder) is almost identical to the 41 apache although Aronow PB. added those crazy shallow steps by blocking the mold.

Also, that wind screen is very cool (although not very attractive in my opinion.). It diverts the air up-and-over the crew.
