Not only was the driveline impressive but so was the boat. That was a former race boat converted to a pleasure boat. It still has the bustle for the rudder but no rudder and it is really a #8 boat.

Tom,

This is Bob Bull's old raceboat that was converted to a pleasure boat last year. He now has a new 48' raceboat with Sterling power in it I believe.

Not sure but this may also be the the first boat with the 1350's in it. It debuted at the Ft Lauderdale show back in the fall.

MTI had a great display but it was right next to Cigarette and I was blown away by their display! Hat's off to Skip and his crew!

The diesel sport boats are awesome too, love the idea of 100mph and 3-4mpg!!!!!!

The Nor-Tech 50 V with a windlass, Corian Counter tops and twin turbines was an unreal mix!

Chris-Crafts looked awesome but I was shocked to see a 20' sport with a $68,000 price tag!

Overall, all the performance builders had great finishes and all the people I talked to in the industry were cautiously optimistic.

Actually, this is the first cat running 1350s. The AMG Cigarette was the first boat running production 1350s.

Don't quote me on this but I think the 1350's were in one of Bob's old raceboats and were tested by him in the pre-production stage.
