Should of had an Apache

Should of had an Apache for these seas or at least that's what the lads on OSO said when they also picked up on this story ... perhaps Tony T will be able to enlighten us on weather these seas are rough enough for an Apache

I have to say the Apache is a great rough weather boat, but that looks more like an Apache polishing day rather than a race day!

I'm sure 'Daredevil' would be only too happy to teach you how best to drive faultlessly in those conditions.

No No No Guys, what my brother is really saying, "keep polishing until the weather really gets bad", then take the Apache out and give it some exercise. Flat water like that picture is just not exciting enough !!
