I'd rather see US-1 on a boat than the number "69".

You know what's worse than putting US 1 on a pleasure boat?

Painting it like the banner apache and then making it a bow rider! Now that should make some blood boil!!!!!

Well. officially, there goes the thread, sorry Randy.

My question is, is there actually a way to earn the US-1 anymore? 19 different organizations running races, several different world championships, I mean, really, is it possible to earn that number anymore?

And Randy there is another down side to that, people do think they are former race boats when you go to sell them. I got asked that a lot on Red Cloud.

What I would do if I were you is put a real nice flowing bow flag on the front, similar to chads old speed racer and then have someone cut the Cigarette script in blue over chrome for the side like you are seeing on some of the newer boats.
