Rich,
Please accept my apology if I offended you, it wasn't meant that way. I'm just not as good as Fred at expressing myself. I'm not ready to stand up on the soapbox and rant about how great of a person DA was, he had his faults as we all do, but I am a fan of his boats.

Heres my copy. A little wrinkled at the top and bottom, but good shape otherwise.

I have a question which I have never gotten straight answers for.

Who really designed the 41' Apache?

To me it looks like a streched/modified Flat Deck 38' Cigarette??

Not trying to stirr the pot, these two boats are among my favorites and just would like to know the real story.\\

T2x,
It seems pretty obvious how you feel about Don, but if you read your own first post to this thread it seems that Don is mentioned more than anyone else. ??? Granted you don't portray him in a positive way, regardless even you seem to agree he is/was of major historical importance.
Well...let me see...I mentioned Don 8 times...and Reggie three times. I'll have to admit that Aronow is 2.66 times as significant as Fountain.........or at the very least 2.66 times taller.......

Interesting!

I figured Don didn't do the "design" work and that his team did it.
