That is a beautiful boat. I had a custom built 38 TS built back in 2002. It was great e-mailing graphic ideas back and forth and then picking it up. Funny story the boat was not ready when we got there and Neil sent us to the Apache' bar. We got back to 188st and it still was being finished. He bought us a couple cases of beer and we got smashed and roamed the plant.

Hey Steve,

Thanks! I might hit you up for a ride... I left Offshore Cowboy in Fl., so no boating here for me. However, I did get to run my '03 Cig, "Godspeed" Saturday. The guy I sold it to last year has decided he likes car racing more than powerboating. So, I was lucky enought to get to be capitan one more time on her... We ran it down to Galveston, catching quite a few nice size rollers along the way. I'm sure the new owner will chime in after the deal is inked.

Yesterday, I hitched a ride w/ Larry in his Ciggie, Spine Tickler (yellow '02). So, luckily enough... boating withdrawl has not been a factor yet! haha...

Matt and Julie (Throttle-Up) are DYING to put a bigger set of wheels on her and take it to the Kilo Shootout, but, I'm not doing it.

Doing the math, it's safe to say the boat "will" run 102. However, at 98/99 MPH, it jumps on plane like a rock star and is an "all around" well propped poker run beast!!!

Here's the 98/99 MPH Pic.
Nice cover
