hahahaha how true ,they won't hit 90 with 900s. so to stay in shape they have to go back to mcmanus, and get a bucket ploy resin poured in it. they just get heavier and heavier. I know a few sutphens and even bajas that are 20 plus years old, and never had to be gone through. I see mcmanus is copying OLs seat design. for vids one of many rough water is in p1 malta round 6 big swells with big waves. still looking for the 07 races but enjoying watching the OL/FOUNTAIN/DONZI kick azz in P1. they did bring a Apache over one year to cheerlead and wave the start flag. it was to slow to race with the above boat evo class cause they averge 115.. if someone would want a straight bottom 40 or 41/47 look at sutphen 40 and saber 41 /47. it will be straighter than a apache ,lighter to.

Find the Videos? No....ok, it's back to the bs file for Air Time. And on with more of the non step thread.

What a dumb comment.

So what you're saying is, that you need to be a poor azz bum with taste for the lesser fine things in life to apreciate Apache? What is worng with a luxurious cabin and white wine? Why have a stripped out hull that will need twin 1200's to hit 100? How many of the OL's build through time is still around and looking great, includiog Pat's 42? If I can have both luxury and performance, why settle for less? Could it be there are no Apaches build simply because the demand is not there, and todays new buyers who spend big money on their boats wants new technology? I'd say that is a pretty safe bet.

What I'm saying is OL does not seem to run well in rough water. But is extremely fast in small water.
Still waiting for that OL video in the 12' seas. Probably a no offshore powerboat genius like you has it! Post it then.

Truthfully...I don't want to talk down any of them. But, if provoked.....it's going to get cooking! It's that simple.

Tuff Powerboats......I'll have a look.
