Default A reason that IB is cool.

What if IB had a direct connection to offshore and to Don Aronow?

It does.

All around cool guy, Detroiter, and racing icon Roger Penske is on the board of IB. That we knew.

But what they have never mentioned for some reason is that in 1973, a custom prototype Cigarette 40 was built for Roger Penske with twin Mercrusier 600s.

http://www.seabreeze.com.au/News/Pow...n_1723174.aspx

So IB has a connection back to 188th.
Who knew?

Did I miss that fact when the IB PR people were on the forum? This makes an IB Cigarette much more likely than we thought, right?

Roger is 71, but I am in his neighborhood, so I would be happy to drive it.

Fendi and his crew have been running that new race boat in your link very well so far. I believe it has the 662mercs in it.

We need a pic of Penske's old 73.

From what I can tell, should be the only 1973 40 footer, wonder if it still exists?
