Yes that is a well built cougar.
it has been stored in one of Chief Engines buildings for years.
Only downside is the bravo drives,......there fine with the current power . It's a nice reliable everyday driver.
However if the power is ever upgraded, I would put #6's on it at that point due to the weight of the boat along with what ever the upgraded power is at that point.
Boat was always very clean.
Seems if memory serves me the owner resided in Chicago?
Good luck to your friend
