Welcome aboard.

Cougar alu cats eeh? That's pretty ol' school. Wasen't the boat Bob Kaiser won the worlds with in '87 a Cougar alu cat? If you have any info on that one, I'm all ears. Personally I think it's the best looking race boat ever - period.

Some Cougar Trivia: What was the name of the Systems Cat Before Kaiser bought it? It raced in Key West under a different name.

I believe it was Sprinter. Systems then became Seahawk 2.

I recall The Collection became Seahawk 1, and later Team Seahawk.
