Thanks everybody for you comments. I really need to finish up some projects on the Mistress and get rid of it before I jump in on the Top Gun.
Betty and I took a couple days off for are anniversary ( Nov 13 ) and were running around Michigan and I wanted to stop in Pier 33 and see Ultimate Warrior again. I saw the TG and checked it out a little never thinking about buying it. Betty wouldn't even look at it, she didn't like the red. We talked about it some more and I decided to go back up and look at it. All of a sudden OSO was going crazy with posts about it. I made allot of calls and sent allot of e-mails and the rest is history. Saw it on our Anniversary and bought it on my Birthday. I promised her i wouldn't buy myself anything for Christmas.
I forgot to take any pictures of the cabin but it's a half cabin with enclosed head. A full piece of I guess vinyl snaps in with the Cigarette logo to block off the front bulkhead. We are thinking of putting a V berth up front. Very simple and light weight.
The cockpit has 6 stand up bolsters. Not much room in the back 3, it's really tight. I love the way Tres did the front 3. They really wrap around in the front and hold you pretty firm. The carpet is stained and needs replaced but there is a spongy rubber mat that is about 2" thick under the carpet was a great idea. The gages are laid out nice and easy to read. I'm embarrassed to say it but I think they are Auto Meter and they are liquid filled. The GPS map and digital speedometer are nice but I think I'm going to go with a larger screen GPS.
Thanks again for the comments and support. Doug

Thumbs up

I love the 90 MPH paint scheme. I remember first seeing it in a Motor Boating and Sailing magazine article in 1987(?) on a 38 with big power that was painted that way. Cigarette wouldnt paint one that way unless it did run 90 mph or above.
