There is a 1977 cig for sale that says powerboat mag special LA-SF, on the side it has an 11 and the boat is white with yellow/red lettering, ballast tanks, staggered turbo (they are turbo for sure not supercharged) motors, yellow three man bolster, it also has a step up in the rub rail near the back of the boat............

Cigarette 39 Competition. That one has a unique extended fairing to accommodate larger fuel tanks. The #3 drives had a unique drop-away skeg system. The boat was Nordskog's endurance racer.

It was Bob Norskog/Powerboat Magazines boat and C.A.M stands for Canada America Mexico non-stop.

A friend of our family bought the boat from the Norskog family and did a full restore on it. Spent many years in OKC, OK, as well as Lake Texoma and FL. They are twin 850 Gentry Turbos. Our friend sold the boat then moved on to the next project.

The boat was unreal!
