Cigarette needs some work on their CC line of boats. Some paint jobs should also just stay on the drafting board.

For my $0.02...Actually, if the engine cowls were kept black, it would still be a bold paint just appealing to a broader audience...

In keeping with Drake, if the customer wanted pink unicorns, it's their money and they if Cig wouldn't supply, MTI or any other builder would gladly deliver. Great boat and it is only paint if ever/when ever it comes up for resale (same as every boat)

Owner should be thrilled upon delivery.

Pink unicorns? I'll be chuckling all morning. Thank you.

And you make a great point.

What the buyer wants, the buyer gets. Especially when you're plopping down over 4 mil in boats. Like Skips gonna say, "Nah, that paint sucks." ?? LOL

They built a Mr. Cigarette copy years back if you recall that definitely required an appreciation for the original. And there was the pastel Gladiator no one seemed to like (I actually did like the colors). Again, customer wants, customer gets.

Do the images pan fast to make the boat look like its going fast? maybe slow them down a bit so you can actually view the image.

when I saw your post I was thinking you would have posted a pic of the pink Revo named Kermit in Europe , lol. But these get the point.
