Sure sounds familiar.. Casey Cnossen started Thunder Marine in Holland, Mi in early 80's he had so many cool boats around there couldn't keep them straight. Think he is in APBA Hall of Fame? Passed away last year. ApacheCarl or Kamma prob remember.

Big swells back in England where that boat was located. One of the reasons I like those loud boats so much.

Too Cool

This was a beauty. A wave cruncher with lamborghini power. Are these hulls on a par with the Apache hulls when it comes to strength and rough water capability?
Any more photo's of this "Breathless" 46'

'Breathless' was a 41', not a 46. Originaly running twin 600hp Lambo's & #6's
It was re engined with tripple 930hp C&G's and renamed 'Lethal Menace'.

Strength, yes. Capability- no. I had a glass 46 and now the Apache 41. The Apache will do anything the 46 did. I've never been in a 47 Apache but I'd have to assume that what has always been said and written about them is at least mostly true. If it's any better than the 41, they'd be pure magic.

Can't find any more right now, but this was the livery of the boat after Englishman Richard Carr (1 time class 1 racer) bought it. As Leviathan says, by this time the boat had been re-rigged with triple 930's. A bit hairy by all accounts! Engine bay had to be seen to be believed. Shall try and find that picture also!

Browie,

The race was the "Harbortown" 200. Sponsored by Harbortown Marina to sell condo dock spaces... Jay Buscigleo was the Race Chairman... Where is he these days?

'Lethal Magic' is currently getting a gas turbine upgrade.

WhoŽs doing the conversion? Does Colin Stoneman still own the boat?? Sounds interesting!
