Default Got my new (OLD) Cigarette in the water...

After selling my Thoroughbred a couple months back I couldn't live without a boat so...

Picked up a 1976 Cig 28SS that had been for sale for a while. Tugged it from Detroit down to Texas and immediately got so covered up at work it sat for two weeks before I even looked at it.

Lemme tell you, I didn't think two boats (going from a T'bred 26 to the 28SS) could be more different. And this thing needs some work. Trim tab switches that go haywire to drive trim indicators that don't work, no running lights, sheesh...

Sure was nice to be back on the water though!

Took me a couple tries to get them shrunk down a bit, these are from the demo ride last month...

...more to follow once I get some time in on the old girl.
