Default Commanche Powerboat rebuild...

We've gotten somewhere with the new boat. Hoping it wasn't a mistake, but time will tell that.

Bought a '98 Commanche built off the Apache design and decided to make it into a pilot house boat.

Here is some of the before pics.

Good luck with the build, I looked hard at that boat for a CC build. Can't wait to hear the details.

Yep, I'm in.

Growing up just off of Hillsboro Inlet in the early 80's I saw many an Apache.

They were not always, ahem...out for a joyride.
