Thanks for the product plug. I also have new polygon upper gears and new "big" propshafts for #4 SSM drives.

Sorry.
Re-read this and now understand the statement.
I originally thought that the comment meant that there was some knowledge that the boat spoken of was not really an apache...
now I see what was intended.
Apologies all around !!!

I thought the same thing, so you aren't the only one.

I looked at that boat about 10 years ago here in Michigan. It had a POS rusty trailer at that time that I would not trust more than 2 miles. The boat is not everyones cup of tea. At that time it needed a complete resto to make it cherry. Ended up waiting for the Chris Cat. Its very heavy, and the engines that were advertised to be 725 HP were by a small racing shop in Mich. I doubt they put out the 725 hence the 72 mph.

Not trying to trash, just my observations.

Look at the colors: that's not the Gucci boat, or it's been re-painted . . . badly.

The invoice shows it's the Gucci boat. McManus also confirmed this.

We had that boat for sale about 5 or 6 years ago in Grand Haven Mi. If I remember right it was tape not paint. It was a pretty nice boat. I think the thing that is hurting it is that it isn't staggered motors and has TRS's. It was a very clean and well taken care of.

It is vinyl and the drives are #3's.

no cabin amenities like a small head for kids...

Not true. The original head/toilet is still in the boat. It is not functional by choice since I believe it to be an illegal one today as it was originally designed to work.

simple,, its so grossssssly overpriced

Really?

Trailer is 8" box beam and has brakes on all 3 axles. It is shiny white with maybe 3000 miles on it. Not sure where the trailer is you saw, but this one is not that one. The speed is right on for the boat with 540's and #3's according to McManus.

Any other questions?
