TST,

It appears that Lucy and crew were only looking over on one side of the their Apache and didnt see or HEAR you as you went by them on the other side . .

All in good fun I love both brands and their heritage.

[B]Later,

It's not about $, but if you want to make it about $, here goes. You get what you pay for, both in Boat and Service, and Reputation. Life Time hull warranty, no questions asked... Unique 1 of a kind boat, from paint, to setup etc... The latest and greatest technology...and not to mention a pretty sound investment. The Outerlimits resale market is never flooded, percentage wise, you will always gain most of your money back over any other manufacturer.

You know as well as I do, that if you equip one of the fountains with the same power, you are not all that far off in regards to $, but light years behind in speed & technology.

Animalhouse,
Don't take me wrong i think Outerlimits are a great boat and right know they are on top of their game. you say you get what you pay for, I'm not disputing that Outerlimits are a great boat I'm trying to figure out the justification of 1/4-1/2 a million dollars more for a comparable boat, power etc, boats still have to float in the same water so its not better schools or closer to the shopping malls, or neighborhoods. Many of the manufactures have life time warranties and the ones that don't have adequate warranties, i sort of dispute the unique 1 of a kind reference with the exceptions of the paint, for the most part they all have the same seating, cabins, upholstery, motors etc. ill give you the latest and greatest technology for today. I'll bet your financial advisor would question the sound investment statement? Percentage wise i'd bet its similar to what you recoup from your original investment to other makes and models both custom and production manufactures. its just my opinion but i still dont get the additional $$. Bottom line as long as your on the water its all good.

CB,

It all comes down to the efficiency of the hull design and having the right X dimension for the hull and power. Another way that you can look at it is that there are several manufacturers that make V hulls ( or even stepped hulls for that matter ) that all weigh in and around the same weights, but there are faster hulls than others when they both have the same power.
