The Cig has Merc power the OL does not . The Cig may have better resale and be easier to get serviced should you break down away from your local marina. I would go with the Cig for those reasons and the bigger cabin and better freeboard as it is a stand up hull .

When you talk about detail the Ol has just as much attension to detail as the Cig. My boat as color keyed tie wraps under the dash. I think it is a push whn it comes to detail & being a full outncustom boat. As for the cabin I was in the first 39 TG center drive (the purple one) the cabin is about the same size in both boats (not much use other than storage).

Check your PM.
I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!

You're right allfiredup, I'll rewrite that:

'more highly customized' not 'more attention to detail'
