Lightbulb Cigarette hull #s???

I've got hull #'s for a boat I'm considering. Where can I 'run' Cig hull # to get a history or what options are available for history type info on a boat?

TIA Chris

Go to the Cigarette Forum and do a search for "HIN". It's all explained there. There really isn't any "real" info included in the HIN like there is for a car.


What it will tell you
CRT= manufacturer
What Model
What # hull
What month and year it was made
What model year

...That's it

Talking Re: Cigarette hull #s???

Thx Craig Is there any info about what power/drives/options etc were originally sold in boat? I place a call to CRT in FL 305-931-4564 and waiting for Bud to call me back.

Don't hold your breath!! I think that alot of that info was thrown away when "the move" took place. I would think that you would have better luck posting a picture of the boat on here. Maybe Craig Barrie or Scott Smith will respond. They seem to remember alot about many of the boats that were produced "back in the good ole days"

I emailed Mr CB, he said to call CRT and speak to Bud

Didn't some rather ambitious 'historians' find some records at some offices on 188th a few months / a year ago??? Maybe the # I'm interested in is in those records

I never had problems getting ahold of Bud, but maybe he likes me. How can you not like Lucky JR ??? Our Mistress (1984) originally came with 330s and TRS.

LS JR.

I called and left a message for Bud requesting information on my top gun. The next day he called back and left a message on my machine with all the information that I had requested.....Thanks Bud!
