Personally I think It really should be stripped of the cigarette logos. Not a Cigarette in the slightest.

Skater did the same thing years ago with a couple of race boats. The early Banker and Dramamine were Fountain hulls built by Skater with some changes. It appears many companies figured Skater could build a faster hull. I guess you can't argue with success, they are fast. Baja also had a Skater project as well..

You're referring to collaborations between Reggie and Pete where Reggie has Pete lay up Fountains in epoxy instead of glass (Fountain boats still). Skip had Pete lay up the kilo boat but the bottom was a Cig or at least it wasn't a skater bottom I should say. The Baja deal was Baja contracting Pete to design a stepped vee for them when they were thinking of trying out stepped hulls. When the deal fell through It actually became the Superman Skater Vee. Few other skater vees were built (not too many though) and their success can be debated but we don't need to get into that. Point is, these are all factory partner deals. The Skaterette was commissioned by the owner originally through Skater as a 39' Skater and then taken to Cigarette for interior and motor rigging. It's still ALL SKATER. If someone takes their Baja to Skater to have them redo the interior and re-rig the power should it be rebranded as a Skater? I think not. LOL

It's just my opinion but it shouldn't be labelled as a Cigarette....It's not. Not to mention there's nothing wrong with calling it what it is. Not like Skater isn't a very well respected company. Though, I'd take a Cig vee over a skater vee all day.

Reggie needed Pete's expertise with the layups as there was a short period where the race courses were littered with sizable chunks of laminates falling off the Fountains during a race as Fountain pushed for lighter and lighter hulls.

To me the boat in question is definitely a 399, which is weird, as Tank stated, to identify it anything but a Skater.

Nigel Hook ran a 399 Lucas Oil boat in the mid/late 2000's (as did a few others) so there is definitely no shame in having the Skater V's

Tyson did the Bermuda challenge in the 399 as well (Diesel / Arnesons)

Pleasure 399 i believe Hull# 1 (Orange) and Baha Skater (red) mentioned earlier

Do they list it under a Skater or a Cigarette?
