last year, when I talked to Pat about a 28 with a 500efi, he quoted me 110,000 on a trailer with over a 1 year wait, I too am curious what the pricing will be though..

I'll be glad to sell you a 28 for a tick over half that and you can have it tomorrow. I would like to move up to a bigger A.T. or Chief or A.T.

Boatme,

You know, I'm a little bummed you call the 37' model the 37 Warhawk. You think you could bump up the Warhawk name to the 42' model ????? The WarHawk is a 41' Apache. Changing the models around would REALLY help me avoid some confusion at all the local watering holes.

As it is now I'll have to explain to people that my boat is an Apache, not a Chief, AND(as if I need the distraction while trying to have a few Rum and Cokes) explain that my boat really is 41' long. If you made the 42' the WarHawk model I would only have to explain the different manufacturers involved, not go into a long dissertation about hull length thereby leaving me more time for Rum and Cokes and chicken wings.

Never-mind the confusion for the people that bought our 2 previous Cigarette 38's(86,88 model years) that were called WarHawk. Those poor people are going to have alot of explaining to do. Not a Chief, not an Apache and not 37' long. The confusion at the local Shooters could hit historic levels.

For the sake of the Bacardi Corporation, please, consider my proposal.

Congrtulations! Great looking boat. I'm anxious to hear more about the AT/Chief connection as AT is an AWESOME boat in and of itself! I'm sure that with AT's involvement and the seeming attention to detail the Chief exhibits in these photos, the finished products will be real rough water BEASTS! Nice job guys.

I'm just happy to see the two collaborating instead of two companies slinging mud. Should be a great product. Best of luck!
