Default New to Forum ... need some guidance.

Hey guys ... Im new to the forum , im from Jacksonville, Fl and had the pleasure of seeing some of your boats in person and meeting some of you this past weekend. It was a great time.

Anyway, I hope I am posting this in the correct forum. I currently own a 30' sea-ray and a 23' ski boatand Im looking into purchasing my first offshore boat and need some direction.

Unfortunatly my budget only allows me to spend around 45k or less right now ... and im hoping to get into something for around 30 - 35k.

Im looking for a 35' + twin engine set up.

I plan on eventually building a set of 800 to 1000hp blown engines and a nice set of drives down the road, so I want a boat thats going to be able to handle that power level / those speeds.

I have been looking into Scarab 38 KV's and a couple Older Cigg. Misstress'. Both boats fit my preference in the appearance department.


any input on boats I should be looking at , or things i should know or be aware pf would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks ! - Aaron

Its not listed. I hope he didn't sell it to the guy who was going to make it a center console.

A Cigarette is about as good as it gets IMO.

If you have someone that can complete this boat, it may be a great buy.
