up to 6k thats a little steep wouldnt you say.

I'm amazed at what I'm reading. I have a 27' Cougar MTR with twin 300X's and have my boat fully insured. I'm afraid to say who it's with for fear of pointing myself out, but it's a very standard major insurance company. They know everything about the boat and THEY have it rated at 110 MPH (which it won't even do) and my annual premium is $515

Go figure.

Yea, I have it listed here on OSO. Blew the right motor a month ago do to a bad TPI sensor, replace the entire block and rotating assembly with a new one from Mercury. I had 320 hrs on both motors so I decided to go ahead and have the left rebuilt and freshened at the same time. It essentially has two brand new 300X's on it now. I wanted to downsize into something like a 22 Talon but it may be the perfect boat to keep, now.

That is a sweet looking boat. I have always liked the look of the 27. Although I have never seen one in person. How does it look in size comparison to a 26/27 Daytona?

I have a buddy with a F-26 DCB and I'm about a foot longer than the DCB....tip to toe. The biggest difference is the sponson depth. The Cougar has deeper sponsons and it can take rougher water than the DCB. I'm not just saying that, we've ridden side by side in 4 footers and he was taking quite a bit of water over the front, actually in sheets of water that rolled over the front and splashed up and over the canopies. He waved a white t-shirt to quit. It was rough as hell.

I had the Cougar parked next to a 25 Eliminator and the size difference was obvious. I've never seen it next to a 25 Talon but my guess is that it would be the same as the Eliminator.
