Default 38' Flatdeck?

Is this a flat deck? Looks like SSM3s on the back from far....price seems reasonable depending on a lot of things.

Yup, That was my pops 1st Cigarette........... Good memory Sam! I knew F.F. would remember...

We bought it off Ralph Martin at Martin Marine back in 97/98'. What a great experience that was. My dad put a deposit down and a few weeks later we flew out of Cleveland towards sunny Ft. Lauderdale in February.. Nothing like flying into the Mecca of offshore boats/boating! We got to the shop and looked at every boat there.... I saw numerous "Paper Boy" Guns, 41' Ghost Rider Apache, and numerous others... Every boat was cooler then the other. We even got to see Hunter painting. My dad and I saw the mistress and we both fell in love the boat!! It was a big jump for him since the current boat at that time was a 24'x7' Python. It needed a little elbow grease but, other than that it was a good package.... It had two 100 hour Marine Power 502's, Trs drives, 3 sets of props, Myco trailer, etc... A deal was made on price and it was just pending on a sea trial. Next day we jumped in one of the duellys hooked up to the boat and off we were to the boat ramp Across from Everglades Marine...... That was a site in itself... Ralph got the boat off the trailer, we jumped on, and off we went out the cut into the ocean. I never experienced the big, long rolling swells of the ocean.... They were gentle and the cig never budged. We were both grinning ear to ear......

The deal was made and we still had 3 days to kill. As always, I did my home work and found all the hot spots to hit... No, not bars... More boat spots.... First place we hit was 188th Street... I thought I died and went to boat heaven...! Cigarette, Apache, Magnum, and Bobby Moores... We stopped in Cig first. Neal H. gave us a tour... Being as excited as we were, we explained to him how we just bought a old cig.... Neal treated us as if we just bought a brand new boat... Talk about feeling like we joined a family! After the tour it was off to Bobby Moore's were it was more boats to gawk over. Then to Fort Apache for a beer and some more looking!! Talk about an experience when I think of it now. Even then I new it was a special moment in life.....

The boat arrived back up north in early march through a blizzard... A one legged boat transporter dropped it off... That was a long spring!!! Summer came and my pops started waxing and never stopped.. He really got the decks to shine and I kept the boat running. It was a great reliable and consistent boat. It would run 60 in the flat and in the rough.... The boat treated us well for a good 5 years... Then at that time my Dad got the itch for a gun.. The biggest reason was the cabin. We would always overnight every weekend. The gun had a whole lot more room.. So again I found another deal and the mistress was up for sale. It finally sold and it was Canadian bound..... At the time the boat was in good condition but did need some attention to the taped stripes on the side.. I think it needed a few other minor things.......... Yeah, for sure gauges....

The boat treated us good for how many years we owned it! We met alot a great people while boating on it and have still remained in close contact with many of them... I am really fortunate to have spent all that time driving while Pops paid for the gas....

I have spoken with Jay on the boat several of times.... I have to say his comments are what he conveyed to me.. Sad to see the boat get rough....
