Yea that's the sportfisherman I was thinking of! Great looking boat too. Are you the guy that I met when I looked at Oliver's 45' Cigarette hull?

I dug up a few more pics of the 32. The transom had not yet been redone on this pic. The tabs are now green, the transom is blue and the drives shot black.

I opened the old books on the 32 Mirage and here's what I got:

Hull #1 1989 White hull/white deck side by side 400 cyclones with #3's, currently sitting in a shop in Miami with no power.

Hull #2 1990 Black hull/black deck stag engines race hatches sold to someone named Art in NY unrigged as a raceboat, this is Armed & Dangerous.

Hull #3 1990 Black hull/black deck stag engines race hatches sold to someone in Miami, whereabouts unknown.

Hull #4 1990 White hull/white deck side by side 400 cyclones with #3's sold to owner in Key Biscayne, whereabouts unknown.

Hull #5 1990 Blue hull/white deck sold unrigged set up for side by side motors.

I hope that helps. If it was black gelcoat from the factory it had to have staggared motors.

The gel-coat was black, some re-rigging is evident, it looks as if it had smaller tabs at one time. I have a pic of Armed & dangerous from the net the quality is bad but it looks as if it ran side by sides. Will the VIN tell you if its hull #2 or #3? The boat has saddle fuel tanks in the rear (both 98 gal.) and two 45 gal tanks under the cockpit floor.

Yes it will. As I mentioned the only black 32's we built left the factory with staggared setups. 32 #2 was always a staggared boat as I knew it, I can't see why anybody would have changed it to a side by side setup. I remember laying out the stringers and bulkheads for that boat, as well as building the plugs for the staggared engine race hatches. The pic on the internet is inconclusive, you can't tell anything from it.
