I'm not sure Bobby would build a cored boat, especially the bottom.

Good luck guys, boat is looking great!

Old tech left, new tech right.

Default Leaked from Chief Powerboats

Looks like the boys at Chief are busy creating a winner for next June's Venture Cup race.

What an iconic boat. The lines are just unmistakable. I hope they paint/sticker it up to look like the original. It looks like the correct color combo to make a modern classic.

A "modern classic" are the perfect words for this boat. I hope there is plenty of race footage of it during the 2,400 mile challenge.

It has been on my mind for years if I ever had a new boat built that I would like the paint scheme of the Warpath Apache above. That is one of my FAVORITE boats of alltime. I am glad to see someone else thinks like me and has had this new 2012 version built. Outstanding.

I wish them the best of luck in the race, I will be keeping track of this new Chief powerboat.
