Congrats on closing the deal....looks like your Tiger bound.
Anymore details on how far north of Chicago?

B4M- I know of the boat from some pictures I saw here however I have not seen that boat listed anywhere. Forward me particulars. I don't get the warm and fuzzy about Supercharged engines however.


Bob the gentelmen who bought the Cafe lives in Antioch, IL and says his marina is 40 miles north of Chicago. He owns a landscaping business. Very personable and honest fellow. He is a frequent lurker here I think however he does not post a lot. He also owns a 31 Carver with a flybridge. His statement for buying the Cig is I'm tired of beiing the first to leave to go to the Air&Sea show in Chicago,going 24 MPH at WOT, sucking down fuel like no tomorrow and getting there last and everyone is having fun already.

Fred,
Here are the prices. The one I am talking about are about $28k each.

http://www.chiefengines.com/engines.htm

If I go with that Tiger like I said I'll put smaller engines first, catch my breath financially in my toy budget and upgrade in a year or so.
Where I boat and who I boat with we rarely cruise around faster than 55 mph. I'm not much and wanting to be the "Biggest Dick" around speed-wise anyway. Someone could loose the equivalent of a college education in $ doing that, and even if you do "there is always a bigger fish!", any power I put in there I doubt I will pass Mr. Stone who owns a Skater with twin turbines on Lake Champlain or the Doc at 117 MPH with his Eliminator!!!.
I think that Cig with the 6's with 500's for now might top out at 68 or so which I could live with for one summer, while I look around carefully (you know how I shop Fred!) for descent NA mills. Maybe like these!

I agree, NA
After having a blower motor in my previous boat, while the performance, looks and the WHINE is awesome, I will not go back since owning stock power in the new boat.

How can some square-head from Ontario figure me out that fast? Must be your swan dive style from the back of the Cat with a pounding hangover!
