I think the 'hockey stick' graphics are original and the checkered stuff was added later?! I tried (am trying) to find more history on my rig, but Bud down at Cig couldn't pull a file on my HIN# So I can only go by what I heard from last owner.

Incredible looking boat!!!!
That is EXACTLY what I've been saving my pennies for!
Black hull, Isn't Fred ( I may be wrong) selling a black hulled flatdeck?

Gotta add 2000sq ft to the house, so a bigger boat will have to wait.
stormrider, i drove from tampa to new orleans to look at cignificant others mistress. i had a surveyor meet me and the broker to look at this " none nicer, pristine mistrees" when he pulled up with the boat the surveyor after hearing the broker run on about what a nice boat it was rolled his eyes at me when the boat arrived. the stripes could have been painted by a 12 year old kid. the hull on early mistresses had the texture of the roven woven glass through the entire hull, but on cignificants others boat there were many areas that were repaired so now have NO texture from being damaged and repaired. all the rod ends for the steering were whipped and sloppy. one of the drives made a bearing/knocking noise. the owner said it was because the drives were trimmed up, i have ssm3a's on mine and they make zero noise when you turn them wether there up or down. i saw streess cracks in many different areas. all the cusions in the interior weren't even all the same color. no idea how old the recently freshened motors are but i think they have cast iron gm heads but i may be wrong about the heads. i didn't even want to go for a ride and they broker was very apologetic for the condition of the boat but i don't th ink he ever saw the boat other than in the pics i saw and you can see how rough it is in the photos or i wouldn't have driven 1000+ miles to go look at it. i offered 40k which may have been too much considering the amount of time and money it would take to really make it a nice boat once again. in retrospect i'm glad he didn't accept my offer. if your really interested in the boat get another oso member to confirm my discription and you will find i may even have been too kind with my description. you can buy a lot of boat for 50k these days...i'll have less than 40k in my mistress with frsh 577ci 750hp motors with all the good stuff brodix heads, crower, etc and mine is really a sweet pampered mistress that has been shown a lot of love over the years, and mine has ssm3a's not #3's and a beautiful teak interior. the trip to new orleans would have been a complte bust if i didn't have such a blast in the french quarter...oh and i did win enough money playing craps in the miss. casinos to pay for my gas and drinks so it wasn't all bad. bad the boat was in fact a big disapointment. ratman

I also fired engines, de-winterized, just have to change the engine oil and I'm ready to roll. Beautiful day (couple) in the great North East ... you can smell the sweet smell of gasoline again!!!
Just remember......My wife has family in NJ. That ride may be coming this summer!!!!! Looks sweet. Can't wait to go for a ride
Neil made it here and the only way I know how to describe his thoughts are "got wood?" He'll understand. I didn't make the ride (work!!) but hung out with Bajaneil, waterheater, ??(glen) , excursion, and cignificant at the local hooters til midnight. We may have some Northeastern boys ready to come boating in VA now!!!
I'll let Neil tell you guys what he thinks of the Tiger.
