I had broken the hull on every previous pleasure boat I had owned. So I figured instead of making a pleasure boat do something it was never designed for I would start with a race boat and make a pleasure boat out of it.
In 1978 I purchased the 36' Cigarette that would become BAM from a gentleman in Cleveland. The boat was in rough shape but had a distinguished pedegre.
In a previous life it was the original Kiekaefer Aeromarine I world champion race boat. The boat was delivered in pieces with drives and 4 engines in the back of a big box truck.
I will update this page soon!
