Your 100% correct Jeff. I was extremely concerned about that. However, with the removal of the rocker I was very pleased with the overall handling of the boat. My only gripe was that because of the weight restriction placed on this project, I was not able to establish a CG of my liking. Obviously, with two big diesels in the rear it was without question stern heavy. The boat was very user friendly though, and responsive to both trim and wheel position.

Eric,

Look's like a lovely build! I take it the Stringer material is similar to divinicel foam?

What is the beam on this boat? I had/have issues with CofG on my Phantom (without 30" of running surface missing), but the Phantom only has an overall beam of 7'! this design was originaly for triple OB's.
It's OK when driving it like your life depends on it, and the centre of lift has moved way aft, in fact I think when driving as if racing, it's wonderful in all but the nastiest sea.

An answer to your problem, and something I'm currently doing to mine, is a bow water ballast tank, I haven't seen them fitted to many US boats at all, but this is a very common fitment over here in the smaller race boats and shifts the CofG fwd very nicely when required. Just a simple cable controlled scoop/dump mounted on the transom feeding a 30-40 gallon tank right in the nose, say beneath the anchor locker.

This gadget totaly changes the behaviour of the boat when used in sloppy conditions, then dump it for flat out speed!

A company over here makes a beautiful cast 316 combined 'pick/up-dump' controlled by a single 33C cable/control box, it's "O" ringed and 'holds' totaly without leakage, so the tank is filled/emptied through the same 1-1/4" pipe into the bottom of the tank (with very large tank vent, say 1-1/2", to avoid bursting!)

Have a look here

Eric, are there no adhesion/delamination issues when you're building kevlar on kevlar on kevlar?

Nice clean build though.

With t/900's, Boxes and #5's..this boat will do around 110
I believe that boat runs supercharged 598's and runs 116mph.


I also think this is a subjective question. Everybody has their "favorite" and will tell you theirs is the best.

This is a runner if you have a fat wallet and brass balls.

I talked to the broker and he said it runs 145 mph because they did it. There are several of these boats with the same setup running around.

I'm not keen on 'the beak', they look really dated to me, and seem to self destruct in any sort of accident, bloody quick tho' they do seem to be!

just My Humble Opinion

Majorly popular in the US tho' eh!

PS. is the Comanche a modernised Apache 41? (or mebbe a 36)

PPS. see how you can mention 'Apache' on here without world war III breaking out!
