Cougar gets wet (at last)

Ran the Cougar over the weekend, few niggly things to sort out and running on a pair of spoonbill 28's with the left bush spinning.
Next plan is a set of cleavers as soon as I can figure out how to shut up the warning buzzer.
Motors have not been run for a long time so kept the revs down, just great to be out in it with my eldest son who has been there through the whole build.

Thanks, yep cant wait to run her with the cleavers and see what she really does. Even in the short vid you can see the stern needs to be lifted but really pleased as a first run
