could be a lucky day today

Well going about my buisness today i pulled into a cul-de-sac and spotted the front of a boat poking out the hedge...discretly backed my truck up along the house and clocked which looks very much like a P28 or summit very very large phantom'ish with twin 2.5's hangin off the back boat and motors look a bit sorry for them selves but ime going back tomorrow for the ole knock on the door to see what the score is and askin is it up for grabs and go from there ...will report back with my findings

Well i aint found my perfect boat just yet ...but have found a not bad looking ex- race boat in the form of a 26 ish with "cougar" on the side running twin 150 xr2's..looks like its been rigged right and has a fantastic shaped hull with a kind of high sided phantom look to it. Could'nt get any pics as i had the wife or girlfriend telling me the man has gone to work so me being tactfull did'nt want to hang around askin to much,going back real soon to see if any manfolk are around and find out the score as i have a feeling this boat could be possibly got for very little tokens

You think ???

It is trumped by a R 21 series A hull with a R21 series B deck bodged on and decalled with C....r moored alongside the C....r yard !!!

Seen with me own eyes !!!

( Is that a worse crime than splashing ?? )

You decide ....

Saw that moored at cowes last week. We were debating exactly what it was! didn't think cougar designed any small monos like that!!

There were lots of your boats knocking about over the weekend Mike. Must make you very proud. Real shame you didn't get the race boat finished in time. We were really looking forward to seeing it!

It was great seeing boats from 38 years back to nearly new !!

We are planning on the Portland race for a debut for the R34 , hope to see you there
