Thanks for all the input. I knew I would get some good feedback. I am definitely going to keep researching this site to learn as much as I can about these boats and some others.

It is more important to research where the boat has been than where it was built based on some of the ones that I have contact with in the past, but I think if you buy a nice one of either brand you will be happy. Spend a little money on your surveys and spend a little time finding out the histories.

I think most of the board will agree that knowing what you have after buying a good boat is better than knowing what you have BUILT after spending way more money on buying a deal that turned out to be a turd.

Good luck. You will love either one.

Default Do I have to SAY it?

You KNOW my recommendation is to have it properly surveyed before you buy ANY boat you decide to purchase.
(For a while some financial institutions wanted a survey on NEW boats!)

A Larry Smith scarab is much closer to a Cigarette in value, construction and resale. Like Cigarette, the LS scarab is not bolted or screwed together at the rub rail, but completely glassed around it's 360 degree inside perimeter.

Good Luck in your hunt for your toy.

Here is a good candidate. Pretty good deal. I would consider it if I had the money. Worth a look.
