Default Cigarette 35 Vs. 34 Cafe Racer???

Is there such a difference? I was filling out a form for Progressive online insurance and those are the options? Was there ever a Cigarette simply known as the 35? I thought the cafe racer was a 35 Cafe Racer and not a 34? Funny thing i progressive says they dont have policy's for a 34 cafe racer, but if you select 35 and state the horsepower then they do? What gives?

There was a 35 Mistress built during the 80's. Don't know about a 34.

In the 70's after Don Aronow had retired from racing, he took his 32 foot boat Cigarette[I] and stretched it to 36..it was over 9 feet wide. This boat was then stretched to a 40 footer.

He had an idea that a narrower boat would be faster, so he designed a 35 foot boat with a 8 foot beam.

He made two models with the same hull. One with a raised deck he called Awesome and one witha flat deck he called Mistress. The boat was actually 35 feet 9 inches. He often said it was the best boat he ever designed, it had just the right balance.

Later in the 70's everyone wanted bigger boats, so he reluctantly stretched it to 37 feet and 6 inches and thus was born the Top Gun.

He still said the 35 was a better boat.

Both the Cafe Racer and the Mistress are 35 footers. What it sounds like is your insurance company does not know what they are talking about.

I don't think progressive will insure a High Performance boat here in Mentor, Ohio. unless you lie about how what kind of boat it is and how fast it will go. But they may have changed their policy.

Be careful about giving wrong information about your boat to an insurance company. In the event of a claim and the wrong info is uncovered, it could be as if you had no insurance at all.
