That man has Huge Cajones !!

I believe thats why Outerlimits is still cutting on there new hull trying to get it up there.Same as the Cig getting JT to help them.

Reggie is just sitting waiting on go

I just wish the other manufactures would step up or at least keep up with there bottom designs

Cigarette is a production boat they just make a lot less of them. One off's are non production.

Go back and read my post. The race hulls come straight from the same molds as the sports boat molds. I know this to be fact. I am sure they are blueprinted but they offer that service to sport boat customers for a price.

The Cigarette is a higher dollar boat.

I have driven Cigarettes and Fountains and I found the exact opposite.

I suggest you read this:

Check out the video of him racing

I'll stick with winning race technology and the Fountain.

Cigarette is not a production boat. There are no two alike .Fountain on the other hand builds many of the same identical boat in a facility geared more for production,not one-offs.Each Cigarette is hand built. They are both great boats, but have different production schedules,different build qualities and different goals to meet by their builders.

I love the looks of a cigarette and knowing your boat is a one of a kind.

On the other hand, I love getting the same if not better performance at a considerable savings. With that savings I can live with a production boat.

Still love to look at cigarettes.
If money was not a factor in buying a boat I probably would consider a cigarette; but it is, so i wont.

Wish they would post a vid clip of the run on their web site so we could see how it rode at speed.
Would like to see them sponsor some racing too.
I think they are moving in the right direction now...Racing is some of the best R&D.
BTW, Fountains...Cigs...and OL's are all high end / great boats, buy the one that suits your needs, or build it to do so, I did.
YOU PROBABLY NEVER SEE A VIDEO BECAUSE THAT SKATER/CIG SUPPOSEDLY SPUN OUT WHEN DECELERATING AND NO ONE WHAT TO SEE THAT.

I know Fountian uses the same molds on their race and pleasure boats. Maybe you know more than the engineers at Fountain?

I will also gaurantee the technology Cigarette is using for their race boats will end up in their sport boats.
your right.every fountain is blueprinted even the fish boats.then the race boats are tweeked even more.

SLOWOUTBOARD guess you were not at the boat show. Cigarette had the video running at the miami boat show. It did not spin out like you said it did. So take your slowoutboard and stop talking SH!T.
