The Chief is bad a$$, been on the boat in 6'ers on Lake Michigan at over 80 mph. Love the boat and its heritage, if I ha the dough it would be sitting in my shop. I don't care about resale as I would keep it forever!!!!!

It's a really sweet boat, but it's also a pink/white elephant as far as resale is concerned.

It would have been cool to see a handful of these boats built, but with there only being this one, it's just that much harder to find a buyer for it.

I didnt know any of them were made with steps. The angles and design of the last 4 feet of that bottom looks wild.

Hands down, the worst transaction I've ever had. I will be forever indebted to DHLAW who helped me get my hands on it and never charged me a dime. By the time I got the boat, my life had moved on and I was flying to Europe every week but still managed to use it on some weekends and even made it to a couple of poker runs.

You can see lots of threads on here that detail the ugliness of the whole thing, so there's no sense in rehashing it. It does make for one hell of a story, wouldn't you agree Boatme and Bobby?

I decided to get rid of it when the cops here in Grand Haven became real jerks giving me tickets for noise and having to go to court. Spent about 5k trying to muffle it, but it still wouldn't pass their test. It sucked when you're only home on the weekends and cops force you to take the boat out of the water. This used to be one of the great places for offshore boats, but now you rarely see one.

I don't know how many owners there have been after me.
