Default Cigarette 35 Raceboats

Im trying to indentify the Cigarette 35 raceboats and there whereabouts today. Please correct me if Im wrong about below.

Hull #1 American Viking later Powerboat Magazine Special - Today?
Hull #2 Dry Martini - Today owned by Kurt Berger and restored
Hull #3 American Eagle later Anheuser Busch Natural Light later Michelob Light later Panama Hawk - Today?
Hull #6 Spirit later Benihana - Today owned by Charlie McCarthy and is being restored

The Jumpin' Jack became the Linit Up then became Peter Stuyvesant.
El Boss was a 37'5.
The Bounty Hunter II became the Satisfaction,then Lil' Satisfaction.
Then there was the Mighty Mouse,probably former or next Conspiracy.

To the Bacardi Trophy Race of May 8 th 1976 it participated a fleet of seven 35.'
Perhaps the more one numerous share of 35' to an official competition.
Including the Dry Martini that not runs that competition, we surely have the first 8 hulls of the series.
They were;
-POWERBOAT MAGAZINE SPECIAL,hull #1
-AMERICAN EAGLE,hull #3?
-BENIHANA,hull #6
-no name,next ERAF,hull #?
-IMPOSSIBLE DREAM,hull #?
-ISIS,hull #?
-JUMPIN JACK,hull #?

The hulls #4, #5, #7 and #8 are to distribute among the Impossible Dream, Isis, Eraf and the Jumpin Jack.

Being the Dry Martini the hull number 2 and if the Daddy Cool were the hull #7 it is evident that this last boat was or the ex Isis or the Impossible Dream.

Then there was the Bounty Hunter II,that runs three months before the Bacardi.race….

I believe that Daddy Cool was the former Banshee of W.Cole of the 1978. Apart the hatches of the engines bay, that have been changed, the characteristic windscreen and that two small hatches? on the bow deck of the Banshee they are identical to those of the Daddy Cool.
I'm of the idea that Banshee other was not that John's Corsiglia former Isis that raced in the 1976.
As I think that Impossible Dream can have become the 1977-78 Conspiracy-Mighty Mouse.
