Cigarette Racing Team featured on TV show

The U.K.-based WAG TV crew visited the Cigarette Racing Team last year to capture the essence of powerboat building for The Discovery Channel's show "How They Do it," which makes its U.S. debut at 10 p.m. today on the Science Channel.

The show repeats at 1 a.m. Friday, 5 a.m. Saturday and several times next week.

“We enjoy having the opportunity to give Cigarette fans — and even people who really don't know much about our company — some insights into the complications and details that go into producing the finest powerboat,” president and CEO Skip Braver said in a statement. “We're proud of the teamwork here at the Cigarette factory and quality of the performance boats we custom-build.”
