    Hello all,
    I am new to the forum, and a first time boat owner looking for some help.
    I just purchased an IMP Apache V for restoration. It has an Evinrude outboard (Starflight 90-s, 100 hp, 1966).
    Basically, I am trying to find out how the Apache was orriginally set up. The interior is trashed, but the hull is solid, and the outboard will probably run with a thorough inspection and some TLC. I already have a service manual ordered for the Evinrude, and I don't take posession of the boat until Monday.
    My problem is there is very little info. out there about the IMP line. They seem to have been on-again, off-again in their boat production: multiple bankruptcies, doors closed around 2001. I can find pics of some of the larger boats, but none of the Apache, and none with an outboard.
    Any info., pics, etc. I can get would be appreciated. I am still combing the threads on this sight but have had no luck so far.

    Check Fiberglassics for Imp Apache

    I to have a 1965 IMP Apache, but it has the three seats on pedestals, two up front, and one in rear, it's set up with the stern drive inline 4. You can see the literature on the Fiberglassics website. It shows you the sales literature with a few pics.
