KWB.....We have had this conversation stud if you want I will run the **** out of you in all of them and you can decide from there and next time clarify which Cigarette Dealer you're talking about because it wasn't me that particular statement targeted. If you're gonna do this test it all needs to be done the same day up by the Queens gate with 6-8's outside and I can guarantee what you're battered body will buy at the end of the day.....Sean

Jeffrey,
It was a 42' not a 37 and it had 1200 Sterlings.....It and Bob Russell's boat rocket were the first two boats at all the card stops his being a bit faster than me but we still ran 120+ mph all day long.....After reaching Catalina we waited for about 20-25 minutes for the rest of the fleet to catch up.....If you could combine both boats into one....you would be stepping up into a fast Apache quality boat......Sean

I have spent considerable time in both boats. The Outer Limits is faster and has more room in the cabin. The Cig handles better in the big water and has an overall smoother ride. I guess it would depend on where I would be boating the most.

Ok, First off, 42 Tiger Straight Hull is a beast in rough water. You just have to power it right. You will WALK away from any stepped bottom boat in the rough stuff (5ft+).I have owned and ridden in the OL 37'. And personally (Iím just stating my opinion, not starting a war) it was nowhere near the ride of the Cigarette. Of course they're faster, (Outerlimits), but come on, they're faster in flat calm water. If you like the thrill of running in rough water, go for a cigarette. If you want to go fast on calm water........get an OL. I have heard stories about the 42' but I have yet to see this with my own eyes. PS- thereís a beautiful 42 Tiger one for sale at lip-ship performance. Also TNT has one at a good price as well I think thatís the one youíre looking at now.

Roller - that's pretty much what I figured. I rode in a Tiger once and it was a Beast!

Since I can't buy a boat from Lip-ship, I plan on going to TNT later this week. The good news is - I sold my 2000 Top Gun last Friday, so it's not only a boat show, but a shopping spree....
