I'd love a "new" boat (I can't stop staring at Tim G's Pantera) but that's a bit beyond my means. I love the original classic aspect of the boat and I think that's the direction I'll be going with it. Funny about how we've got different tastes though, I love the chrome hardware and teak on the boat. Compared to my last boat (sorry Jim) the hardware on this boat is all very top shelf.

How's this for a name OLD's COOL ???

Leave it original as possible. Its a classic and a damn nice looking boat. The "hockey stick" paint scheme as they call it is my favorite.

Either way, you'll never recoup the money spent. Decide which on blows your skirt up more, original, or updated. Personally, I'd upgrade it. I absolutely hate teak on a boat. Maybe the best way is to upgrade it cosmetically, but leave the original drive train. Engines and drives are big money, not to mention any glass work you'd need done to change over.

I'm very familiar with the "hockey stick" paint job myself. I like it too.

No sweat, John!

I agree. the "old school" boats like my 1970 Donzi and your Cig were built to be the most expensive boats (in their class) in the world. Not built to a price. The hardware on those old boats is just amazing. Built to last...
