Its the new Thad Allen "Apache" for sure. Notice the excellent finish, the mold that came out of MUST have been perfect.

Thanks Ange. I appreciate it.

Oh, mean.........good idea. He's the man.
I saw this same picture two days ago on Screamandfly........

The hull is a puzzle.

The transom shot indicates that it had a thrust block mounted ahead of the outboard's center section. The size indicates a Sport E/G Class OPC race boat which allowed a single seat configuration. The hull is definitely a cut down "pop"...probably from a 15' or 16' Glastron.....but the dead rise does seem a little shallow.

One of the S&F contributers felt it might be a Regatta hull....... Early Bajas also looked like that and a guy on Long Island made a similar hull as well. I also recall a company called Hustler (not today's brand) that made a hull that resembled this one. It is definitely not a Switzer, nor an Allison which were from original plugs and had much better craftsmanship.

There were so many little derivative hulls back in the day and so many modifications made to them that it is hard to tell. Come to think of it that applies to the current spate of performance hulls as well.

Bottom line..... It's worth at least $25 bucks.

Let me know if you come up with an answer.
