Cigarette had Several race boats before Virgin. The boat that CB won the first F2 SBI worlds with that had Havoline on it. Then Philly won the champions ship with. Miccosukee found alot of sucess with the same boat the following year. Tres and Todd ran very well with th TG for a season and a half especially in rough water. Then they got there Gladiator and did very well with it. That particular gladiator has pitched quite a few people as well as many other gladiators from what I hear.

Remember... Cig has won more offshore races... The key here is" offshore" not "along the shore" I'm not knocking it but it is a lot different than it was ,this modern style of racing shouldn't be compared to races of the past...

No BS - Straight from the man himself!

The man is Reggie, not benny.

I haven't seen a Robertson yet is he building 1 or 2??
