Remembered Tom Abrams from his race days and was one of the great guys in racing towards the race fans. Tom always had great looking boats and rigs and his new Cigerette is just awesome looking.

I'm surprised that it's not orange lol. Probably my favorite boat he owned was the Tomcat Skater and hauled around with the matching semi and trailer.

Awesome boat. Tom actually bought one of the mini boats that I totally restored years ago. He sent me a check and one of his drivers picked up the machine. It was a cool piece. At the time it was a mini version of my Top Gun. I had restored it to look like the current Top Gun that I had at the time.


THE NEW GTR IS SWEET TO SAY THE LEAST!!

You can do a search on OSO for MINI Hawk. This one was actually a splash of the hawk, this was a spectre 13. Better fiberglass work. This boat ran in the 50s for speed...lol

Thanks for the info. Yeah, i was pretty sure the boat was not a Cigarette hull.. lol. But it certainly looks like an interesting boat for 12-13 year old kids.
