Cougar Osborne's yard in Littlehampton. I went past it today and most of the boats have gone?
I could only see the red Cougar US1 still there.

I saw Tub Humping race at Littlehampton some years ago, then saw it next looking like this.

They also had a skiboat claiming an association with 007.

Did it stay the right way up?

I watched it run at LA a few years back, and he performed a feckin fast barrel roll right in front of us. I was genuinely concerned they might not emerge safely, as it went over sideways and canopy didn't look like it would sustain that kind of impact at that speed (It was running flat out with a 2.5 on it). It was running VERY loose, right up to the point it went over.

Yeah but very slowly at a corner. It was almost like slow motion. it never ran right with the canopy on. C of G was to high.

It did look a little top heavy with that canopy especially when you compare it to the picture outside Poole Pottery in its origional design setup.
I assume it was fitted with the canopy to be allowed it to race faster without incurring a penalty, and ended up having to run slower to stay upright.
