I\'d take it for the right money, they are a great crack, loads of fun. Bit limited in possible uses though

Mate of mine had a cougar cub when we were nippers.

His dad bought it for him from a storage shed in Moody's on the river hamble.

We were only about 14 so his dad rigged it with a 15hp mariner. It ran v well and felt plenty quick enough with just the two of us. Setting up was a bit tricky though as no "in-boat" engine trim and always felt a bit unstable driving into a headwind.

Loads of fun though and great for a young'un!

25 HP about right
Propshaft about 1- 1 1/2 inches below the sponson tips

Hand throttle is fine as You tend to move ya weight about to suit


have a blast great fun.. but you can turn them over if the water gets to big

Edit: at least cover half the water intake holes maybe block up the top ones be flex on that height I mentioned above.
prefrence was to sit on the seat rather than in it, one leg under the butt one on the floor just in case, tie the motor in on the pin stop it kicking
