a little wet pussy

Just finished the mini cougar for my lad, took it to town next to my Targa.
Ran it yesterday evening, went really well but a wetsuit is probably the best form of clothing to wear.

There is another mini cougar on the island for sale complete with 30 Yam, hav'nt seen it but owner wants 1500.00

Hi mate,

My lad is only five so he wont be racing, the cat runs really well but flat weather is all I would use it in.
I did take my other teenage son out but it took a while to get on the plane.

Your right it is a good laugh its pretty quick and we even had it airborne outside the QE2 and it landed really softly.

Dont think you have much to worry about the way your phantom was running on the last race, the u-tube footage is great.

Steve

Yeh, pretty isn't it..

90mph, light on fuel and two in the boat, it'll do 85 with a full fuel load and 4 people.

There's pics and vid in the multimedia section.

Yeh, never been apart, still running oil injection @ 7000rpm.

Nope, not a hope in hell, hardly ever use the boat now, last time out was Oct 98, although it is having a bit of a spruce up at the moment in the hope of an indian summer.

Oil injection- brave man!
If your looking for someone to take her for a run I would gladly oblige, even pay for the gas!
Nice boat! Do you know what the hull weighs ?

Have you watched the footage of what I think is your cat in the gallery from '88?

It's a bit glitchy, but there's some nice bits of yours.

Now now!
What I meant was I would love the chance to see how it drives. I plan on doing an all new cat in the future in the 26-28 foot range! Would like to see a few others first!
That's all!

Now lets not get silly!! Even my revenger will be wet before your cougar!

Nice tent you've got over it now though, could you PM me where it's from and how much? I could use a couple of those!

Cheers, James

Its a bit Harry Hill Larby , your revenger or my Cougar- which is better,theres only one way to find out----------

As regards the tent it is through B&Q, the good thing with this is freight free to your door.
All is on the DIY.COM site
My tent is the 30ft stronger version about 1800.00

Awesome, I'll have a look!
We're gonna have to have a race when they're both done, proper offshore so it's fair, and see who wins
