That boat is Bad ASSSSSSS. It used to come from Conn. to Claudio's on the East end of long Island. It would pull up and you could see the sound vibrating your drink!!

ConGrat's WayBomb,


Are you bringing the Cougar back to St. Joeseph?

If so I look forward to see it in the area, spend a fair
amount of time in South Haven.

Yes, I'll keep Plain Vanilla at my condo in one of the slips in St Joe, on the river. Our condo is on adjacent property to Harbor Isle Marina.
The title is being searched right now, and we expect to close later in the week. Then I gotta get it pulled over here from Port Lampton. Any cheap leads on hauling - anybody need a back-haul?
If anybody knows anything else about the history behind this boat, I'd sure be abliged.
What can you tell me about the engines?

Thanks
Fred

Well...guess what..MM is right!!!! I tried the intercoms today and I have mixed report....yes it is better for teaching other people about jamming in waves and adjusting your tabs or trim..and for just general chit chat..down river....but you can not hear the correct noises when bashing waves in ocean..?? This can present a problem...plus I love all the noise!!! They are good and bad....you can not hear the alarms that good..better watch your lights!!!

Damn, I wish they'd hurry up with this purchase process. Here I sit with only a couiple of jet skis and my old 1969 Glaspar, with one of my slips empty. I am so freekin going crazy waiting to get my boat here. What beautiful day today has been. What happened with NAFTA and free trade and cooperation between nations? Shoulda had the boat here, and been to the gas dock a few times already. Oh well, what's another week? My wife is handling my nervousness quite well. Oh well, gotta get back to the dock party.
I'll let you all know when I actually have Plain Vanilla in my slip.

Saw the boat sitting in Port Lambton a couple of weeks ago. Are you buying it from a Canadian guy in the area? I had never seen it before. Beautiful boat by the way.

Yes, a Canadian firm owns the boat right now. They're not exactly near Port Lambton, but they put it there for me to sea trial it.
Just waiting for the totle search to be completed. I guess it takles longer because Canada is involved. Otherwise, I might already have it!
