The one in Naples you mentioned is a different boat. "SIVA" I believe, was the name. Still had the twin inline sixes in the pics I saw of it. It was dark blue with a red stripe, where mine is black with a red stripe.



Mine was originally a Florida boat, red with a blue boot stripe, and honey gel. It was repainted red and white, with a different color scheme, and converted to 292 inlines from the original 250s. It went off to Lake of the Ozarks around 2000, and I brought her to Maryland in 2011.

When the re-paint project came around, I wanted to return to the original color pattern, but couldn't resist going with black. Also, re-powered with a single BBC, rather than keeping the inline sixes.

Here are a couple pics of the Naples boat (which I'm guessing you may have taken. )

Yep that's the one I was talking about, and it did take those pics. Thanks for dragging them up I know I posted them on this site somewhere but couldn't find them

The one in naples is nice but not perfect. I don't know if it is still there, been a while since I have been around those docks.

I remember us looking at a 24 that was in the water at cigarette back n 73 . I was 7. I loved the teak deck.

Dad ended up buying a 26 Monza with the inlines 6 s instead .

Any pics of the resto? You sell your Nova?

Concerning Martini 24 v Cig 24, I have owned both and there is no comparison in build quality. The Cig 24s are tanks (and yes probably slower with same setup) and built solid as a rock. The Martini I had was for lack of better terms, "flimsy" compared to my Cig.

Cheers,

Any pics of your 24 for us!

I take it you bought it and restored it.

Did that boat come out of Naples Florida ? I used to see one on a
Lift next to my slip.

Boat looked identical in color as yours in hull color but had twins and a red original interior, was very nice at the time 10 years ago.
AWESOME a proper teak deck 24!

Here is my 81...

Thanks for all the kind words you guys!

I dig your clean '81 also--part of what inspired me to switch to the single BBC, actually.

Tommy, I'll have to dig up resto pics--switched computers this past year and don't have as much handy as I might. Here's one more from last year's ACBS Chesapeake show, showing the profile. I sold the Nova when I bought the Cig, perhaps 5 years back.

That is such a sweet boat Mike! What did you use for the clear coat on the teak? Also, what single engine did you install? Bill

All original and sharp colors.
The local guy I sold it to ended up selling it elsewhere when he got something to take its place so I am not sure where it went. I also hope they are keeping it original.

Sorry Bill, just saw this note.

The teak has an epoxy clear, 3 coats. The engine is a 496HO, stock except for Stainless Marine exhaust with custom tails and GGB pot mufflers, directing the exhaust out of the bottom corners of the transom.

Any chance you have a picture of the transom showing the exhaust setup? That sounds like an interesting and quiet way to exit the exhaust. Bill
