The thing I like most about my 1967 S&S Chris Craft Apache 37 is its turn of speed and going pass most equivalently sized "modern" designs. S&S designed this boat after Intrepid and it has a fin keel with a bulb on the bottom drawing 6 ft with minimum wetted surface...nice overhangs that add to water line length when heeled...early thick fiberglass (built like a tank for good off shore work), and won't buckle after hitting a rock at full speed (which I've done a couple times). Small foretriangle, big main that I've equipped with recent Doyle sails, etc, and a tree trunk sized mast.
I guess that's more than 10 things, but that's my story and I'm sticking with it.
