I think someone once said he had the new Imco 4x4 Drives on there.

Bobby can confirm this, most of it is first hand fact. I filled in the blans with what I remember. The boats discussed below were the one in the picture above and three others. They were 1999 and 2000's.

New Tech was a Company that a guy from the Bahamas was the money man for with Bobby. There was an insert placed in the mold that was designed by a European Engineer. I know for a fact that there were three 36's with the step as I personally sold all three of them several years ago. One went to the Bahamas, one was sold to the Feds as a drug chaser boat, and the third went the Great Lakes Area.

At the time I remember that there was a triple 41 with diesels but am not sure if it was stepped or not.

When New-Tech dissolved the insert was not allowed to be used anymore by Apache (or whatever you want to call it)

Somewhere in my files I have a write up on what I believe I remember to be a fourth or fifth 36 that had Bobby Driving it.

The Bahamanian one won the Bahamian race in 2002. It was a 36 with 500 hp's and ran 82mph. Since then the boat has been re-powered by TNT with Chief Engines and is running close to 100.

If i were going to spend 160k on it, i would want to see those pictures first rather than after, that had to hurt.

The 42/43 had steps with Yanmars and is for sale now, I think in Europe. Welcome to OSO.

That thing gets deeper into enemy territory than an Apache helicoptor. Probably thought Bin Laden was held up in the tall grass there. We'll get that bastard yet.
