Velocitoy,

Take close look at how that IMP Cig in ohio is constructed. The cig/squadrons have 15" tall full length stringers with three full bulkheads up under the bow, full bulkhead behind rear seat, and two more under cockpit area, "egg crated" in the engine compartment - with the low sides they are really needed if you want to abuse it. That boat was for sale about a year ago for 10 grand. Now it's 15?? whats up with that?? I considered it briefly as a project, but after using 15 gallons of epoxy, yards of cloth, and countless hours rebuilding an old excalibur up to my standards, I decided never again, and now own the white squadron that JGB showed you. Here's the one in OHIO for the rest of you. This thing does have a "cabin" and is probably fine as long as you don't want to make it go fast in rough water....... just my opine....

Uh oh, I might have messed up. Just applied for a gold membership because I can't check the pic JGB posted. If it's the one with the stripe down the side its not mine. The picture description looked familiar. Sorry if I got it wrong.

Cigarette only made a 24' Firefox. Expensive, solid, heavy duty boat. Stay away from Imperial!
