Well there's a gazillion boats out there but it looks like you've narrowed it down to some pretty good choices. Ciggies, OL's- all great stuff. Of course we think we build a great product too so as mentioned above, call me if you want and I'll give you the skinny on Nor-Tech.
Best of luck.

Heres some shots of that 36 Apache thats for sale. the owner is a good friend.
it has procharched 502's (yellow blocks w/red procharger hardware, matches the flames)
The boat is in good shape exterior and interior. The interior has a little bit of what looks like mold under the material in the cabin. It's not bad or anything, just noticable. Gages are nice engine compartment is clean and rigged well. Thing sounds bad ass (loud!) Some don't like the flames, they feel it's not traditional apache but the paint job is flawless.
It was running in the lower 80's in Havasu which is a higher elevation, fresh water and it was like 90 degrees.

ANd you got Cigarette1 (Gary) selling his 93 Cafe. He's giving that thing away, like 70k with 502's and bravos. Nice boat.

I know another guy selling a 96 38 Scarab w/ teague 800's BAM trannies, #3's. 50 hrs on motors. This boat is probably the cleanest Scarab on the market! I have a full spec sheet and a bunch of pics if you're interested. He's asking 135k.

Ok, sorry about all the rambling...I know of a few boats for you though!

If you need help getting ahold of any of these people let me know. good luck.

Tank

Would'nt buy anything but a Warrior. I went down that same road. I also looked at the Topguns, and so glad I went with apache. It is one heck of a boat and you will not get any better support than from Bob saccenti. In my mind, there is no other answer than "BUY APACHE"

Dreamer.....a couple of rides in a 30 footer in snotty conditions, you will forget about going 80 and wish you had a larger boat! Start with a 36 to 38 foot boat that might be slower overall, but quite a bit faster in the rough stuff.

You can always add power down the road, you can never add length or size. Just my two cents. Good luck to you....for $130 K, you should be able to get a really nice boat.

DMan....and the D is for, "Don't you love friends that try to sell you a $180,000 boat right after you tell them your limit is 135K??

Default Apache

Tank, What does the 41 Apache with 750's run? I have a friend who had a similiar setup, it ran a best of 88 mph. with Labbed props. The boat never saw better than low 80's before the props were labbed.

Also, does anyone know what "Ruckus" top gun runs? What kind of power? what do we mean by low $100's? $110K??

The Apache runs in the mid to upper 70's from what I've seen. But I don't think it is dialed in.

I don't know the exact specs on Ruckus, but the motors have just been gone through. I think it runs in the mid 90's. I know Anna wants to get it sold. I would call her....I've heard low 100's....I think 110 is reaching a bit but you're not too far off.
