I spent a lot of time in Holland out on the water that year and never saw it.
Was not a whole lot of performance boats around except for Scarabs and Chris Craft Scorpions .Powerplay slash Powerquests were just entering the scene also..Only time you saw Magnums or Cigarettes was in Saugatuck and those most likely came from Chicago.
I grew up on my dads 48 foot sailboat during the summers starting in Grand Haven in the early 70's.My dad bought a new 26 Monza in i think 72 or 73.Tho only other performance boats around at that time was a another 26 Monza named Plum Crazy with a Baker built motor and Stellings, a 28 cigarette SS at the Holiday Inn that never went out and a 18 Donzi that was yellow with blue stripes named Foxy Lady.Oh ,and a Blue 25 Nova that belonged to my schoolmates dad.Moved the sailboat and the Monza to Holland in 76 and all there was there were Novas and Scarabs
.Anybody remember Van Andels old 38 Scarabs Warp Factor and than the first triple engine i had seen Black Magic?You could here that pig from miles away.
Baddest boat i saw that in 85 in that area was the 36 Cigarette BAM coming out of Saugatuck near sunset heading back towards Chicago.I kept up with him for a few miles in my little 19 Baron than turned back to watch and listen to him go off into the horizon.It was a made for Miami Vice moment.
In 86 i was in Ft Lauderdale walking around the bars down by the intercoastal latenight with some girl i just met and i hear a badazz boat ideling up the intercoastal, and out of the dark comes BAM. Made my night, i love that boat,Any body hear if their getting it back together?
