Yea, something like that. Most forget that the 39 was going to be and were built with the center steer set up until Phil built your boat. Cig changed it back to the classic steering after that. Plus Phil built that boat for his good friend who has unfortunately passed away. It was the poster boat for cig for a long time and some trivia - all the ad posters it's on also advertise mercury racing even though it has Zul motors in it.

On a side note I have some original proof large poster size photos from when it was tested by powerboat. Great running shots off of Miami.

I have three different large poster size photos. The really nice one of the profile of the boat off the coast of Miami is hanging at my mechanics shop. I'll see what I can do to get them and get copies at kinkos or something.


And yea, I'm a firm believer is Zul. He builds an amazing motor that runs strong but most importantly is reliable! Kevin Schulte put over 400 trouble free hours on his tunnel rammed 750's that are in the "out of control" 38 TS. And he pulled to rebuild only because of the high amount of hours not a failure. Great motors. You have (as you know) one spectacular machine!
