cougar cat

Even with the poor exchange rates this Cougar Cat when compared to the cost of the Aluminium CUV Mono Cinzano seems a bargain at around 50-55k, as opposed to the asking of 200k for the aluminium Monohull even seems cheap for a cat compared to Pash's Mono, and comes with 584CI blower 1050 motors now this would be a great boat for CTC next year

That's Richard Struttons old class 1 cat, the ex, Bonner engined 'Supercat'.

Cougar redecked it for Richard, fitting the centre canopy & stuff in the mid 90's. Now called 'Endangered Species'

There's Cheap, and there's economically Viable, and in the current ebb tide of economical recess I prefer Economically Viable any day

Plus that would be Sh*t in the rough

Here's a Cougar of similar size / era in some slop.

We are all routing for you to get the Plastic fantastic water bound next year, will be sure great to see it at Cancer research, don't think Brass Monkeys doable some how, however I think after checking out JF's Toleman link a Cougar Cat may float like a butterfly over the waves and sting it's opponent like a bee and at 50+K that's one hell of an impressive bee and best yet you still have a skip of expensive aluminium if it all goes tits up

The metal markets said

"Copper, aluminium prices down on inventories, stronger dollar

December copper was 12 cents lower to $1.69 per pound in New York while three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange fell $265 to $3,775 per tonne, bringing copperís decline this week to more than 20 percent, while aluminium dropped $31 to $1,975 per tonne in London.

The declines for copper and aluminium came as copper added 2,725 tonnes to LME inventories and aluminium stockpiles jumped by 2,875 tonnes on the session."

So you've seen 20% of the value of your investment wiped out in the last few weeks. Sorry Pash Not A Good Move Mate!

Does anyone know where they quote the scrap value of plastic

Cat Piece

Oh,Jonny,Oh!

That cougar film clip had to be of the cats that meet sticky ends.

Toleman sinking as Carlsburg in RB84 and Peter Stuyvesant putting a hole in the bottom in that very race (Needles 81) and then went on to be smashed to pieces in a 1990 U.S. race as Gentry Turbo Eagle.

Bring on a nice mono of 1974 bog standard plastic layup thats got
7,000 odd miles on the clock,tough as old 31ft Phantoms.
