Default Looking for Cafe or Top Gun with SSM

What's available? Not much listed anywhere.

Anyone know this boat? No response from broker.
Cafe - https://moreboats.com/boats/cigarett...e-racer/143091

Very Nice!
Top Gun - https://www.performanceboatcenter.co...OwnedInventory

Top Gun - Used 1993 Cigarette Top Gun 38, Sandusky, Oh - 44870 - BoatTrader.com

This one looks a little rough, any more info?
Top Gun - https://moreboats.com/boats/cigarette/38/14714

These can't be the only ones, what else is out there?

The 1993 was mine but I have heard from many sources, that it has been a bit neglected. Some pictures are mine when I had the machine back in the summer of 2013. When I sold it 4 years ago it was an easy 9.5 out of 10. Sad to see it now.

Some people can't have nice things...lol

The diver down gun is sold. Pretty sure the black Café was sold too. The #6 Gun belonged to Jeff Cheng (founder of OSO) and sold to Anna (Blond Cig Chick), went to Chicago where it was sold again and looked like it sat, outside, for a long time. I would venture to guess it needs to be gone through in every aspect. Which is really unfortunate because it was a kick ass ride.

Tank,
Thanks for the info! When did the black one sell? One of the listings for it says it was updated 2 months ago. Emails are not returned from the broker and at least one of the numbers listed goes to some tech company, not a broker. I really like the 38 with 6s, to bad it's in that poor shape, it was a sweet rig. Did you ever get any more information on the white one called "Special K" at Ugly John's? No response from those ads either. I think I saw somewhere that one has TRSs though .

Good luck with the special k boat. I have called multiple times and left a message and also sent multiple emails and no response.
