Default Mini Cigarettes

Been seeing some "mini cigarettes" for sale lately and wondered if anyone here knows anything about them.Paradise is one manufacturer and I saw one a while back whose owner claimed it was built by Formula.Thanks for any info on these little boats.

I have one, But it is not a true Cigarette eventhough it has Cigarette decals on it, It is 13'4"long and is a true V bottom with a 24 deg deadrise and looks exactly like a scaled down flat deck Cigarette, The hull weighs about 250lbs and has a 50HP Merc on it (it's rated for 25HP I plan on splashing it for the first time this weekend.

There is one for sale here on the board, go to the classifieds and look under "Misc. V's" or "All Other Makes" I can't remember! I think it's a 14ft Hawk.

I remember seeing one just like lee's. This one also looked just like a cig. Even had the correct decals on the side. I believe that this one had a small block though.

I have a 13' Mini Hawk..
Would love another one. Mine is a 1986 with a 25 Merc. Its fun and grabs attention for sure. Like anything I wish I had more power and a new prop!
Its for sale if anyone is interested. I paid $2200 for it a few years back if you're wondering what these things cost.

Cool

RE: MINI HAWKS >>> Lest the cat contingent be forgotten, BAJA made/sold a 13' mini-cat that was designed by MOLINARI called the SCAT-CAT......I bought one for my son a few years back. With a 25hp johnson, a tweaked prop, and a few other set -up trix, it would go 33+-mph and looked like a mini skater...He loved it!!! He has outgrown it and if any of you are interested let me know.....FOR SALE CHEAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AS for the mini hawk question, I don't know what company was responsible, but there were other boat companies that made their own mini boats... They were way popular 1984-1991.......

Velocitoy, send me some info on you little boat. I have seen those before, not bad!
My title says MINI HAWK is the Manufacturer. Not sure who originally made the mold. Where do I get a better prop for it?
