Slippery when wet. "POD" Free Tunnel through Common Sense Engineering
The point is Steve, is that Cigarette is still alive and kickin....not involved in a bunch of BS litigation and never ending arguments over who owns what....It is a fact that the mold for the 41 Apache came from Don Aronow is it not.....I am well aware of the magic that Don worked over and over again on his resale ventures......I am entitled to my opinion.....I personally also like the Apache and its storied past and colorful heritage.....but for me Cigarette is Numero Uno......of course that is just my opinion....
The problem with cigarette is that you have alot non-diehard boaters who are buying a top gun or a tiger as a first boat.
Cigarette has gotten too big for it's own good.
I see that you ordered a 36 at the show, congrats. When do you expect to have your boat in LI? How did you set her up? Do you ever do any of the Poker Runs that the NJPPC puts on? I look forward to seeing your boat.
According to who???? You???? You have an opinion just like everyone else......so the fact that someone likes a Cigarette enough to save there money and go out and buy one as their first boat is a detriment to the brand.....come on......you are going to have to come up with alot better than that.....The problem with cigarette is that you have alot non-diehard boaters who are buying a top gun or a tiger as a first boat.
Hopefully end of April.
I'm going to be in the NY & Manhasset Poker runs this year.
Your going to start seeing alot more Apaches in the Tri-State Area.
There will be a big news for Apache fans all over the place.
More to come.........
Cash...I have been around this board for awhile and am well aware of Steve's opinions and thoughts on a wide range of subjects here.....the fact that he knows a thing or two about laying up a boat doesnt make him the last word on any subject discussed here.......He prefers Apache.....I prefer Cigarette.....end of story.....The 41 came from Don..but someone had to execute the finished product...that was no accident...BTW,STEVE 1 hasn't told you,but ,I will that he IS the best guy to lay up a boat in the industry...knows his sh*t..listen to him................
We are both entitled to our opinions.
I don't think Cigarettes are bad boats.
Apaches are just better.
Who would you want designing your new boat
The corporate owners of Cigarette or
The Big cheif Mr. Saccenti (trained by Mr. Arronow)
I'm sorry too old,
Company was sold so many times. It's hard to keep up.
who do you want to build your new boat?
