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.

Yes you can still earn a us-1 designation. It is the highpoints champion for the national season. The Worlds actually start the following racing year and you are reigning champ until the following worlds....no number desigination is given on world champ only the national High Points Champ......For Example Hooters Super Cat in OSS was at loto with a regular number they were crowned National Champs there and flew the US-1 in Destin at the worlds and they will fly that number all of the 08 season.........and until someone makes a boat that can outrun a skater 388 they will probably fly that number in 09 as well....

If I had a million bucks and went out and bought an ex-raceboat with US-1 numbers, I wouldn't run it until I either got it repainted or won a national championship. If you want to prove what a great racer/driver/throttleman you are, put yourself out in the competition of offshore powerboat racing. It will never be the same as it was in the early 80's, and that's too bad...I'm sure we'll always have to deal with posers...

So answer this, the model of my boat is ( US-1 46' Cougar )
Should I ask cougar to re-title the boat?

It is a pleasure boat,.............Not sure what to do.

The cougar was a world champion hull like the cigarette and should be allowed.

Randy, just go with US-69 and the Missouri state flag; now that would be memorable; I'm sure the Water Patrol boys would love it.

I was thinking instead of US-1, just put a #1 in an oval mimicking the Cigarette logo (old school race numbering) with an American flag trailing off.

Remove all the lettering and just keep the 1,
