Default Tommy Adams Signature boats

Found an original Signature built by Tommy Adams.He was the person who got himself shot because he crossed someone.
He drove Miss America P-71... which is a copy of a Magnum just with a different deck...we think this was his display boat,based on photos from the Cigarette factory.Needs stringer and bulkhead work,no engines or drives $8,000/best offer Bud

Can't believe it is still around. Nice looking boat! You think that's the same boat from the factory in '79?

Signature boats always had very advanced color work for their day. I spent a lot of time at the factory as a kid. That paint scheme was reffered to as the cottonmouth at the shop, not sure why? A number of 27 left with that paint scheme, as well as a ton of red, white, and blue boats.

Spoke to him yesterday, I think he's looking forward to getting some time working on his boat. Mind you, with the weather the way it is here at the moment, it sounds pretty appealing to me too!!!!

Best wishes........

Default Tommy Adams Signature

The 27 ft Signature will need new upholstery,rear bulkhead and possibly a floor,need to spend a little more time with it. It had 468's and TRS Drives,and ran just under 80 MPH.it comes with a clear title.and no trailer,If you are going to pull it yourself we can put it on and inexpensive one just for hauling. It came out of a Marina in the Everglades,brought to IL.in 93 and has been sitting for almost 15 years.Let 's keep in touch if you are interested. Bud

So I have had my 27 super custom for 3 years and have been bummed at the lack of other Signatures and information out there. I think I have seen one with an outboard bracket on the east coast, Ridefast has one and I think I have seen two or three on Craigslist. Mine is titled as a 91 and has a FLZ Hin # (Which doesnt fit in the time line) any idea on how many hulls were made? Bud I would love to see more pictures of the cabin or any other information you may have, Thanks Bman
