Thank you all for the kind words. We are extremely happy with the boat, to say the least. This is a Lip-Ship edition Cigarette so there is no corner of the boat left untouched. Yes, it is a race boat, but that is no reason that it still cannot be flashy. Our cockpit is all finished in vinyl with the Lip-Ship and Cigarette logos stitched everywhere. Phil even had the guys cover the top of the dash and paint the dash face to match the boat. Like I said...no corner left untouched. Well, everybody kept asking for pictures so I hope that these fill the request. Below is a picture of the left side of the dash.
Troutly - Let's just say that top speed is in the 100 mph ballpark!
Birdog - You know, from some of the boats that I have seen on this board, your swap and rotate concept may be a great idea!
