a couple year ago Skater put a Rough Ride together for Cig and then Cig took the boat and powered and rigging her... then ran it in a lake to beat the world speed record.. i think she went up to 173 or 168 with modified 1075s in her..
anyone know about this boat..know where the boat is at
no rough rider.. but that the boat that made me thing of it
this i not a pleaser boat.. full race rig and full cockpit
white boat with Cig logo on it.. i've looked for it on the net.. never found it.. but read an article on it in boat mag
The boat was at the Miami Boat Show s couple years back after they were done messing with it....
I think Mr. Tomlison tried and then Ben something I think Robertson (that use to work at Fountain) tried but they couldn't reach the Fountain number safely. Just what I recall some others will chime in with more precise information I am sure.
Search 2006 or 2007 Miami boatshow pictures and you might see it.

that's her.. and you are right no records fell that day
they did acouple pass at 60% 80% then pulled the boat to put longer lower units on her than put her back in and ran it again at 80%... the captain didn't like the way she was handling and pulled her again and that's all i've ever heard about the boat..
anyone now where she make berth now..
If you know the information Thomas why did you ask?
because you can tell i'm a post whore.. LOL
just saw that boat that Payton posted and wanted to see if anyone ever put this boat back into the water or if there was any info o it
i've always had a hope the cig would get back into racing..
but thank you for the info
I have a "SMOKIN'" magazine around here somewhere that has an article about it.....
Article says it mae a one-way pass through the Kilo course at 163.759 and attained a top speed of 172.....
