Offshore Powerboat Drives Upgrade


We have recently been trusted to finish a pair of Gearbox Outdrive legs to re-paint for  the Vintage Offshore Powerboat Kaama

These two Outdrive units were fitted to the famous vintage offshore powerboat Cigarette.  We have filled and painted them to produce a very smooth and “fair” finish with  a high quality gloss black finish.  The paint specification chosen was a durable two pack Polyurethane system which provides excellent chemical resistance combined with good colour and gloss retention levels.

Kaama – The World Championship Winner Cigarette 36 Offshore Powerboat

This world famous Powerboat is currently being restored by a customer of Custom Coatings.  The boat is a 1978 Cigarette 36 type.  These boats were famously built by Don Aronow throughout the 1970s at 188th Street, Miami, Florida, which is also known as Thunderboat row.

This boat was owned and raced by Betty Cook, a grandmother who became a two time World Champion of the Sport.  The photograph was taken at the start of the 1978 Cowes – Torquay race which they won in a record time with a local navigator called Mike Mantle.

The boat is now being sympathetically restored as a replica of the race winning boat, in memory of the famous Fast Lady.
