articfriends,
I really like fountains great lines and really fast. I don't think anybody could argue that fountain is a good boat , they just aren't for me.

BADA BING,
The price range of boat that I am considering would be new or next to new...depending on what I could find.

again, I am close to making a deal. I don't want to jinx it by blabbing too much at this time. I still like to hear what people have to say and don't want to over look anything.

Sorry, I hope I did not offend by guessing or saying you only had 90-130k to spend on a boat, I figured since you said a CIG 35 you meant a Cafe, and most of those are about 10 years old, but if your talkin about getting a Playboy CIG...now your talkin, that boat was one of the nicest boats ever made...the black with silver accent's was a cool combo

BADA BING,
NO OFFENSE at all. You are right, the 35 Playboys seem to get over looked sometimes by the Top Gun

I just traded in my 2004 35' Fountain for a 2001 35' Cigarette. I took delivery on Fri and splashed it that evening, put it right on the lift and woke up sat. morning and took it to the Glen Cove poker run. It's an awesome boat. It's just two different worlds. The Fountain cockpit was to small and low for me. I am more comfortable in the Cig. cockpit.

The Cigarette. Too me they are more boat than the others. I have yet to see another boat next to a cigarette that i would rather own. Except a Skater or MTI.

Because out in the ocean when the water is rough I don't want to go 20 mph.

When the video of the LB S.C.O.P.E. Poker Run comes you'll see all the scaredy cats eating Cigarette wake. yeah.


However if is for lake pleasure then the Cat is the way to go.

Be different get the Sutphen. I just met Richie recently and know for fact he will build you a hell of a boat ANY way you want it. No questions either on the rough water performance.
