Wow, I really hope you don't sell it. I'd hate to pour that much blood, sweat and tears into it and sell it. I think you'll miss out on a ton of fun.

Good luck to you, though.

I dont think I will sell it, I will keep the boat, and run it, I might buy another boat ( cigarette 30 mystique). The motors are Cobra 650 HP 461 C.I. 454 Big Blocks, the speed #'s were from the speedo, not GPS, I had alot left, but the motors got hot and I shut it down, I will have some GPS #'s this weekend!!!!

KEEP the boat- take your time and fix it up the way you want to for next summer! IF you sell it, it will be hard to replace this rare boat. Best of luck!

IMO after putting them on and talking to guys who have put a lot of them on, they are just not worth the extra cash. They look cool though. You could find better places to spend that 2K.
I had mine for 10yrs and had just bought a back up and they stole them when they stole the carb and drive/steering and other chit last year thats the only trouble I had in ten years or 11 yeah it was a 1995 box new one was a 06, stolen march of 07. and still not in the water.

Well, my ride tonight was not the best, it did not overheat, but I did blow both motors, the right motor blew the crank seals, and has a rod knock, and the left motor broke the timing chain!!!!!!!!!, I guess I am getting new motors!!!!!
