I sold my white Banana that was the sister ship to yours. It now lives in Swansea Mass and has a single 250 Yamaha. Says it goes 65mph hanging on the transom.

Here is my other Banana.

Hi Bob,

I got the Cig last year. It is a 1972. Only three were made the first year of production so it is very rare. I was actually brokering it for my friend who didn't have time to put it back together. During the advertising of it, the original owner from the 70's called and gave me the history of it. He said he wanted to buy it back. I ended up wanting the boat so bad that I bought it instead.

Going to be my winter project.

I believe that this is a pic of the actual boat ripping around Florida.

It has a Bravo I with all new internals and shaft ready to go.

Originally a Volvo, but the transom has be redone for the Bravo.

Too slow, are you going to buy the Scorpion? Where is it located? I am looking for one too. If you lose interest...I'd be interested in some pics and the guy's number. Let me know.
