Your brother, Pat Bentley, lied about the hours, said it had 400. When I got there, it had 1200, which was right on the hour meters, he's a liar. Significant stress cracks in the forward bow. Said entire interior was new, when only the gunwale panels were replaced with a mis-matched material. All of the chrome interior lights were rusted to the point where the chrome was flaking off on the carpet. I could go on but you get the point. The worst is that I drove 7 hours to turn around and walk away 10 minutes later. I stand behind my statements, a lot of people know who I am on the board, I'm not hiding my name. Don't waste you time unless you're not very picky.

There are 1990 boats out there that are in better condition and many that are in worse shape. If someone really wants to buy the boat. Just come and look at it, make a reasonable offer and you can own it. No nonsense and no bs. My number is (920) 743-7842
This was twice as long this afternoon!
So how much for the boat? Post some pictures of it. You are in my price range for a project.

Bentley Powerboats has serviced my boats for the past 11 years and will for many years to come! Mark and Pat have always been straightforward, honest and a wealth of knowledge even when I bought my last boat and it wasn't even bought from his dealership. As for the 28 Apache I saw it last year in Marks shop and it looked pretty sharp for a boat its age. Besides if you like a 28 Apache its not like there are a whole pile of them around!!!

Just looked at Saber28's comments and i just realized you looked at this boat 6 years ago!! You don't suppose in that amount of time the current owner might have fixed some of the issues. Like the tri-axle Eagle trailer under it! Saber needs to relax!!!!

Saber's comment are important, Brandon wanted to know about the boat. His first hand knowledge of looking at the boat be it 6 years ago are very important. I have seen his personal boat and he diffently knows what nice is, if a boat was trashed at one time I would want to know. Steve

I just think a better response would have been " I do not know what the boat looks like now but I looked at it 6 years ago and it needed some work and I past on it." The point I am trying to make is that by the looks of this thread no one knows the CURRENT condition of the boat.
