Parn ..... sounds like you guys had a pretty good time out runnin the other night !!!! This is a fun thread to follow ... for a couple of reasons !!! I'm looking forward to seeing FOUR Saber 41's at Smoke next year ! The triple boat does have something special when it gets rough and we all must deal with that here on the great lakes !!! Call it what you will , weight , sweet-spot, whatever .... but in nasty water , when it starts to get dicey for everyone , that boat is able to cover more water , more comfortably at speed than most others that have tried to give chase . The ability to "just leave" in the rough stuff provides a real sense of security and control ... to be continued as the new owner takes on a new crop of challengers on Lake Michigan !

That depends on what Apache you throw 1000's in.
This picture was taken buy a guy who had 700's in a Top Gun. Notice which end of my boat he photographs ( just kidding). This Apache runs 100+

It's got speed that you can use when other ( faster) boats are choking on the conditions.
Thanks for clearing that up, I figured the weight and balance had alot to do with it, with the extra motor. I didn't think about power curve and throttle control though. BTW: did you guys have fun out in that water with Wicked two a couple weeks ago. It was kickin pretty good out there.

IMHO I Gotta say the FINEST in the rough is the '47 Apache. The 38 TG, the 41, and the 47 are all fabulous boats. But the '47 is a rough water hombre!

I believe Gary Brightwell (God rest his soul) and I were in Jenny's Express next to you and Brian Hagan in Geronimo.

For close the price of Starchaser I could lay you up a new hull to your specs. I hope this does not stir up any trouble.

I know that one day I will move up to a TopGun or a Tiger. But, In my opinion, the 41 Apache is the baddest MoFo ever built!! I'd love to have one someday.

How much is MM asking for his boat???
