"The two-way pass of the Kilo course averaged 163.759 MPH."
So according to this...Cigarettes are faster than Outerlimints?

"Skip Braver, CEO, asked Mercury Racing to build some experimental custom engines that would go beyond the speeds achieved with the 1075 SCi engines."

Funny, Merc builds a motor for Cigarette to break the speed record and Merc owns a piece of Fountain.

For their very first try at the record those are some very impressive numbers.
I'm also glad they explained why they hired Skater to do some work for them. Not being experienced in full canopied boats and hiring the best in the business to help you out seems like a very smart move.
Nice job....

Correct me if I am wrong, but didnt Skater lay up the entire hull, not just the deck??

In the interview, it said that Cig chose Skater to lay up the cockpit since they're one of the safest around. They used the 46' Rough Rider hull. At least that's what I read...

Cigarette says that < as a result of their kilo efforts >, "we have the research to build even better pleasure powerboats" . . .

Pretty much what Fountain has been doing for decades.

I don't think you need to be corrected. When I was at the Skater factory last spring, that 46 Cig was there under construction. I was told that it was a "top secret" boat that they were building for Cigarette and we wer'nt allowed to say anything about it until it's done. (So I did'nt)
Glad someone else did, I kept my promise.
