Arrow Looking for a NEW 38'TG

Not that I ever had an old one...


A 20 year old "investment" is about to pay off any day...one way or the other... they tell me...and it's time for a new boat...I am looking to see if this might be sitting on a lot somewhere....same exact colors...... or..T-850's will work too..I do want to stick with Merc Power if possible. Air/heat..

Something to get away from Corporate America in from time to time..hopefully for good actually...ever get that urge anyone..? besides me?

Thanks,

Hydro

Pretty boat, those colors are timeless. Ever see a 1992 Baja with the pink???

Gotta love good investments. I bought lots of stock over the years at the company I left at the end of last year. Turned out to be one of my better moves...and is what will pay off my new boat.

Call Ocean Performance (860-388-6000) and ask for Todd. They built the boat in the picture. It's not for sale, but they do have a 39 with 850's that may come in on trade and it has lots of blue. The boat pictured is a 38 GT. You wont find any with 1075's or 850's. The 39 is built for sixes and big power. What you should do is build a new 39 with your choice of power and put those graphics on it if you really like the design.

Hey thanks...break-in for 10 hours on Mercury Oil.. then over to Mobil-1 V-Twin 20w-50 for life and probably on those engines stick with Mercury Racing Oil FIlters or Wix Racing.

I like how smooth the Mercury high horsepower engines idle for ease of docking..they are a must for me as I am not all that patient when docking.

As far as drive oil in these things what ever Mercury says because I am not familiar with anything but the Alpha and Bravo's.

I really don't intend to go all that fast I just like the power to get on plane fast and well heck it's a Cig...power rules!

Why A Cig?...simply because I have loved Don Aronow and his boats since the day he invented the sport and I owe him one....this is the one that started it all...

Hoping to get this done by Memorial Day if possible...who knows...

Yup..real Americans buy what they want!

My wife is okay with it though she is not into this just like
Bob Norskog's wife let him buy a 42' Fountain he loved so much as well as his Wellcraft and Cig.

They will bury me in this boat...so resale does not matter and my kid will in all candor inherit the boat later on...hopefully not too soon though.

I must admit I have a ton of respect for guys like Aronow; Reggie; Fiore' ; the Porter's ; Jo and his dad and the others who make this sport work for us so very well!


Thanks!
