Default Lost Cigarette

Has anyone seen this boat lately? If so where is it located? It is a 1977 36’ Cigarette Mistress. My dad drove from Houston to Miami in years ago to pick it out. He found it in a dilapidated condition and restored it. I can remember a guy he hired working for months just scraping and sanding the bottom paint off. Yes some idiot had put bottom paint on it. My dad built a building to paint and store it in. When I was 11 years old these were the first big blocks my dad and I built together. We did the graphics ourselves and hired an airbrush artist to help us. The boat was my first experiences in offshore powerboats; I can remember every detail of those rides. My dad sold the boat in the mid 1990’s to someone who I believe was affiliated with the Luxor dragster in Las Vegas. The boat means a lot to me and someday I would like to buy it back. Right now I am in college and can’t afford anything, but after I graduate I will definitely own the boat again. If anyone has information on the location of this boat please write back.

I just finshed at A&M Galveston last December. Do you know Scott Felsenthal he is about to rig his 33 Doniz CC. Are you MARA, or something hard. Good luck on finding your boat
