Default Aluminum Cougar Catamaran

Was driving in Dublin, California today and my eye caught a Cougar Catamaran sitting in a construction equipement lot ,
Not sure if it has power , but does have Arneson drives on it.
Its aluminum and has no name on it
attached some photos of it here, will try and get some better photos and also see if anyone is there to answer questions.
Thank you
Jim

It could be an old Systems boat. I remember when Errol had the rounded hatches made (but then everyone followed suit) with a little digging around on it you could tell. The first Systems boat started out Blue with Arnesons with the name "Sprinter", Then Bob K bought it,Had Errol change it from Arnesons to Merc's. He added 13* wedges to the transom to fit the Merc stuff. it seems to have a flat transom now. if you dug around on it you could tell if all this work was done.

Edit...You can see bolt holes where it looks like Merc stuff was on there... Could Be....
Edit 2....After blowing up the pic I see the Wedge still on the Transom. That probably is the 1st Systems Cat.

Bob use to put a Porsche on the front of his trailer and that pix looks like a spot to put a car on the front.

I could also be the old Budweiser /mr goodwrench/network express boat.

I believe ,this is the correct answer...... Errol last raced it in Nor Cal.... It was called Copy Cat, but this does look like Bob's trailer.

Hell no lol! Does bring back some sweet memories tho! And yes, the guy who bought from Jim took it to CA and it was called Copy Cat as mentioned above. Poor baby looks rode hard and put away wet

Hello
Here are a few more photos
the transom has been welded up and there is a outline from what looks like a possible Merc transom opening and the front of the trailer can differently hold a smaller car like a Porsche on the front. The loading ramps are even there
there was no one there to ask today
Thank you
Jim
