Default Cigarette

a couple year ago Skater put a Rough Ride together for Cig and then Cig took the boat and powered and rigging her... then ran it in a lake to beat the world speed record.. i think she went up to 173 or 168 with modified 1075s in her..

anyone know about this boat..know where the boat is at

any info??

thanks
thomas

I don't think any records were broken.

The boat was at the Miami Boat Show s couple years back after they were done messing with it....

I think Mr. Tomlison tried and then Ben something I think Robertson (that use to work at Fountain) tried but they couldn't reach the Fountain number safely. Just what I recall some others will chime in with more precise information I am sure.

Search 2006 or 2007 Miami boatshow pictures and you might see it.

that's her.. and you are right no records fell that day

they did acouple pass at 60% 80% then pulled the boat to put longer lower units on her than put her back in and ran it again at 80%... the captain didn't like the way she was handling and pulled her again and that's all i've ever heard about the boat..

anyone now where she make berth now..
