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.
Carl .... Bring your boat to "Smoke" this year and I'll bet Marc will have a little flier printed up that you can just hand to people that explains al the sorted details of the whole lineage .... then you can just sip and smile .

I think Mitcher T did a fantastic job on the paint. I know it has surpassed my expectations. I would recommend Mitch to anyone. His work speaks for itself. The pictures don't come close to doing it justice.

More news to come....
Congratulations on your new boat. The boat is Awesome. Mitch did a fantastic job on the paint. Can't wait to see it this summer.

I was looking at the picture of the stern, it looks like the pad is turned down, similiar to the design of the step bottom Cig. Pretty Cool!

Congrats to all of you at Chief Powerboats. The boat looks awesome from the pictures and Kathy and I are looking forward to seeing it next week-end.
Will be great to be running with it on the poker runs this spring.
LT and Kathy

I have a question for those in the know. Was Harry involved in the 42 and 47 or just Bobby?
