interesting finds over the weekend

i was out boat hunting over the week end and came across some interesting ones,

found a p21 which later discovered on B&O red and yellow, called "endangered Species" with a old 150xr2, wants 8 and a bit k, seems way too expensive.

a p18 or 19 with an old old merc 150 if mem serves me right, in poor condition.

a ring 21 with a 150 mariner on a transom at newhaven, could pos be interested in tht, well tidy!

and at the marina where cougar make the honda racing boats, there was a HUGE cougar like the one at littlehampton (but much bigger), in navey grey, what a tasty looking boat, not sure if its for sale tho!?

anyone knw these boats or any history???

cheers

They were really living on the wild side.

I'm sure it would be viewed as a sensible precaution so long as it did not cause undue distress to your fellow passengers.

Point taken. I'm also acutely aware of safety issues. My comment might have been influenced by my countrymans' reaction to a harmless video posted on this site.

JFs video was awesome, under total control, calm conditions and he had a life jacket on don't really understand all the hullaballoo about that clip. I nearly creamed my pants when he turned and wellied the Phantom with the black diesel smoke in the background
