Default looking for Cigarette blank 35-38ft

I'm asking this question for a friend who is looking for a Cigarette shell. The perfect hull, would be either a 35 cafe racer, or 38 top gun, with an interior. He's got everything he needs, including big power, drives, trannys trailer, guages, strainers, trim tabs, strainers, ect.. So a basic blank with an interior is all he needs. Somewhere in the 1987-1994 range, and any opinions on what price range seems to be good. I've found some already for good prices with trailers and drives, but they are mostly older flatdecks, and thats not what he's looking for. I know this is the place with all the knowledge, thats why I'm here. Thanks in advance. Rob

I know at one point board member 'SEAN' would have sold his Cafe less power/drives. Not sure about that now.

You might call Kachina Boats in Phoenix. Louie has a Gun sitting in the yard that has been blanked out. It's a mid-90's from what I recall and has a straight bottom on it, not stepped. Have no idea what a boat builder would be doing with a blanked out hull...

Lake Cumberland Marine has a few. Not sure what the "real" number is for them, but what they are advertising them for ($$$) is probably the reason that they've been for sale for a looooong time. I'm not sure, but I think that one of them is a staggered config.

Nope, I'm not talking about FatBoy.

One of the ones that I'm talking about is the Superman boat. The other one has prple and green graphics on it. Check out their website. Both boats are setup for #6 drives.

Thanks keep them coming. I'm looking for a pure pleasure set up, not stand up bolster or race set ups, someone that got too far into thier project boat, and is cutting thier losses. Lots of high prices so far! I looked online and theres a bunch of 87-91's in running order between 60 & 80K, so definitely south of that price for sure, not blanks for more than that, I do appreciate any leads though.

Just like the other 100000000 people looking for a steal, you're not going to find anything nice and to your specs for pennies on the dollar.
