Steve Rydovich or something like that from Seattle spent Howard Hughes money building this thing. Rigging is absolutely phenom...... It has less beam than an Apache 41 and the bottom is a little different from what I understand. I crawled through it not long ago and its definitely got some good hardware in it.

Depends on the price of what your getting it for. Remember it's a one off boat and resale on it sucks at best even though it's probably one of the baddest boats around the general public could give a sh#& less. So that being said if the purchase price is right you can always recoup (?) the hardware and have the baddest ass flower pot in the neighborhood.

I find myself asking the question ,Why would someone build something that looks like the Cigarette/Apache Hull or even a Scarab which has Genes in the Magnum Hull same Blood line . If it was done by a Boat Builder. and Not by Mr. Low rent boat Molder

A "One Off" to a Builder is Building “Mold less “Like Ken Adams or Myself and a host of others, which gives us a tremendous freedom, the ultimate to be creative! In short BOATBUILDING!

Now the landscape is littered with Molders or Opportunists! See what I am talking about!

Now just why someone would go thru the enormous amount of work needed produce a finished Boat that resembles something very common in the High Performance Market I find it Mind boggling!

The guy who built that boat was in Seattle. My friend new him alittle. I wanna say that he took a 38 cig and stretched it re-did the whole boat. He built sail boats or something like that. There is lots of trick Carbon Fiber stuff in that boat. He also had THEEEE trickest harley I have seen. It was a street flat track bike with number plates and all. The boat is tooooo TRICK.
