"A LONG TIME COMING"
Daren Kittredge’s Viper powered 20’ Cigarette boat is finally complete. Daren has been patiently waiting for his new ride and she’s finally ready.
He started this project himself a little more than 3 years ago. After riding shotgun in Tom Abraham’s 20’ Cigarette boat in the 2007 20’ Cigarette Poker Run. D.K. was bitten by the 20’ Cigarette boat bug. He found a 20’ Cigarette, stripped it to a bare piece of fiberglass, straightened the bottom and completely re-gel coated the boat. He then came up with the bright idea to install a V-10 Ilmor Viper. We received the boat and engine about a year and a half ago and with a shoe horn and a lot of elbow grease, mission accomplished.
This all aluminum 625 HP engine coupled to an ITS with a custom made extension box and Black Hawk drive, make this one unique ride. D.K. re-machined the extension box to remove unwanted weight and this boat jumps up on plane and accelerates like a dragster.
Daren will be cruising the waters of Lake Winnipesaukee and has promised to bring his latest Lip-Ship Edition to the AOTH in May of next year at Lake Cumberland.
We’re holding you to this!
