He's not exactly sure, mid to late 80's I was told. It's all white, has a wing on the back and a swim step extension off the tunnel, between the drives. Going to look at it on tuesday.

I took this pic on Lake St Clair around 1982 of this 30 Cougar Cat with Arneson drives. This cat has been on the lake all it's life through several owners. The last one with said it can be a handful to run & has a wet ride much like my old 32' Active cat with Kaama drives.

That boat pictured was (what we at Cougar called) G-4 the 4th Glass 30' built, it was built in 1983 and sold to someone in Detroit. I Painted those stripes myself (since that was my job at the time )

my 32' Active is wet till about 70mph then hang on cause up she goes, she starts packin air and the speed builds fast!! one thing I really liked about it was the stability of the wide body.. (12' beam)

I was hoping you would chime in. I thought your Apache cat was on top.
