I agree that would be a sweet setup

Not to poo-poo the Apache love fest here because believe me, a 42/47 Apache is about the coolest offshore rig in the world.

That said, don't be short sighted on the resale value down the road. Sure the tight inner circles know the Apache/Chief/McManus connections but that is a small group with limited purchasing abilities. Cigarette & Outerlimits, though more common will have a broader resale audience and again, no offense to the Apache crowd, have way more technology and speed then the older Apache designs. This is especially important if you are going mild power/Bravo drive.

The 42 Ilmor should be ready to test in the next few weeks, will have solid numbers soon.

Last year with Bobby in Key West.

We don't sell boats, but we love our Ilmor MV8 570's as far as power goes!

Maybe true with the whole apache/chief/nutec/pantara/saber/McManus/checkmate and who ever else, but they are all ways show stoppers. I say pick one of the above and do it.

Chief is the only one to produce a new boat with in the last few years out of them . ( that I have seen)
