You are correct Tom A did sell his 42 Endangered Species and picked up the 46 WoW Boat
WoW is some boat real clean and runs great with those Zul's in it

Every Lip-Ship edition Cigarette I've ever seen is absolutly perfect with amazing details. If I were to go back to a performance boat a Lip Ship Cigarette would be it.

Our next boat is a Lip-Ship. Phil is the $hit!!!

I can't wait to see the WOW boat. Rough Riders are one of my favorites!

Quick question.....other than a little bit of extra paint here and there and some "Lip-Ship Edition" embroidery work, what are the real differences in the boat as compared to other Cigarettes?

The boats being dialed in is just another part of it. Most Lip-Ship boats run a few mph faster than the others out there. Also, this doesn't apply in most cases but since Phil rigged our boat he did certain things certain ways that can only come with years of experience. Phil is #1!

Phil is at the factory constantly. He also does a lot of special stuff for his customers. I know he has done light layups on some boats as well as different cabin configurations. He takes the extra step in making sure every detail is taken care of. Phil is an innovator too. He is always trying new things.

When the new 39TG was introduced, he refused to order one with the side by side pickel smoocher seats. Thanks to Phil, Cig redesigned the cockpit and the 39 evolved into what it is today. And, of course, Phil's first 39 blew the other boats away and graced the cover of Powerboat magazine and winning an award. Phil+Zul+Grafikworx is a winning formula, everytime!!

PM203,

I agree. He is always pushing the bar higher.

We should be on Lake Winni soon! Can't wait.
