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!
