If I'm right,that doesnt even count because it was under 10k.
Forgive me if I'm wrong on that one. Last but not least, In
real dollars I think the really expensive boats like Cig,O.l
and others, ...I'd love to hear from some guys who bought brand new Cigs. Whats
your "for real" experience.
You can bake any cake you want Rick in the end none of us two will change our minds.

I don't care what they sell for new thats a luxury I will never be able to afford whether Fountain or Cig. The same as I have not bought a new car since 1989.

Until someone comes up to me and says something else than "Is that one a them thar Cigarette boat?" like my Fountain owning friends tell me they ear all the time, I will:
- Enjoy life reading threads started by Fountain owners about Cigarettes.
- Admire how many other brand owners post in the Cig section.
- And wonder why you jump into/initiate these debate about Cigs every six months when all we do is notice that "everybody wants a ride in a Cigarette"

3.We get quite a few other branders in the Fountain section
4.I'll NEVER STOP.............NEVER. Or until summer gets
here. Which ever comes first.
5. Its fun gettin you Cigarette guys panties in bunches !!!
6.My dealer gave me a free scewdriver so I can tighten
my Fountain up after a day on the lake.I bet Cigarette

The most money I ever made on a boat was my Fountain. It,s not what you sold it for, it,s what you bought it for! That,s when the $$ is made.

Cig has some slick advertising.Talk about a leap of faith. Whens
the last time you saw a Cig owner look the guy in that pic. Most
look like you G.L.

To my knowledge Cigarette has never claimed to be the fastest or best built. They have always been and continue to be the magic name in high performance boats.
I don't think ANY Cigarette owner has a reason to become defensive.
