I've been asked sooo many times "Is that a Cigarette?" about my Corsa that I now just answer "Yes".

People ask me "what kind of boat do you have"

I reply: "a 38 foot Cigarette"

Then they look a little funny and say "who makes it"

I reply "Cigarette"

The next question is "is that a brand?"

"Yes" is my reply

And invariably I hear "Oh"

I have a 39' express cat and they ask me if it's a cigar boat .... I say yes , X 2 !
The other day I had some people calling it a split boat .

Still the best was when a guy says to me " I bet it really beats you up bad when you get it wound up around 40 mph !!!"

Just tell them 'it was until I went smoke-less'. You can just walk away while their trying to fugure it out.
