Important Historic Race Boat found

We had a new member join HORBA and ask if we wanted to see the photos of his recent restoration of an old race boat.....yes, we sure did.

Well, he has restored the first race boat that Don Aronow ever called...The Cigarette. It was a Formula 233 and it had a single GM engine of 409 cu in.

The complete story and photos are on the HORBA site under the section called...Member's Boats. Enjoy.
