I was/am not trying to put anyones boat or dash down, just giving my $0.02 worth. And hey with the cockpit like your boat, you get all the chicks , remember Savannah!

Better take your fleece lined panties on that one. I think this cold front is going all the way south. I'm leaving for Daytona on Sun. 12th to go to Marine Performance. I hope to be coming home on Wed., maybe I'll see ya'll on the road . Hope ya'll can make the Savannah trip.

The wat APACHE originally did my boat was to put the gauges for the forward engine on teh top row and the rear on the bottom row so you can glance a nd know which engine you're looking at.

This is the only picture I have of an Apache, but the 2002 36 I have seen looks the same.

Its too bad its not mine. I'd be proud to own a dash like that.

Roger

Do you think we could start miss spelling your name again(Rodger)? I'm having a hard time with this too.

Read my lips...I have absolutely never in my life blown up a #6 drive....period, end of story. Sorry to bust your bubble....I am really glad you are wrong on that accusation....as for your mechanical problems....well, what else can I say except it is a good thing you are a master mechanic!!!!! Don't push me Stinson or we will get into some serious wrestling trivia...and no cheating by looking up the answers on the net!!!!!!

DMan....and the D is for the Magnificent Don Marocco!!!!!!

Default APACHE

I like many things about the 36 APACHE over the cafe or top gun. I looked long and hard at both, they all are nice boats. I am 6'4 and 255 so the apache has more freeboard and a much bigger head. Tighter cockpit for hard running in big seas,and very few of these boats were built around 100 in the world. Just wanted something a little more rare and something that BOBBY BUILT.

I beleive the "exclusivity" is a good thing and helps to keep the resale higher. Personally, I don't think the person who is looking for an Apache could care less about the "so-called" confusion of who made them, they just know they want one. Actually, over the past decade, Cigarette has been bankrupted and changed hands many times. I would be curious to see some statistics on resale of the two, my bet is the Apache brings a higher dollar. After all, my guess is that the popularity of the Apaches in the 80' and 90's helped keep Cigarette alive!
