Default Mini Cats get layed up this week!

At long last the Metal Bros Racing Pocket Rocket 10' goes into the mold this week, the first 2 hulls will be on display at Desert Storm at the end of April with 1 hull available for demo rides. We have already secured our booth for the weekend with Lake Racer LLC. The on-water demo boat will feature a 25hp Merc EFI 4 stroke and a full Livorsi gauge package as well as a 3 speaker Rockford Fosgate stereo system complete with 8" subwoofer. Both boats will feature paint from Pat Weimer who is best known for his work on the "Gunslinger" tow vehicle as well as several boats hitting the water now. A build up thread will be started soon with updates frequently.
please feel free to post any questions you may have. A few answers to the most common are listed below.



Boats will not be made with more than a 40HP motor
Both outboard JET and prop are available
Boats with a REAL single axel trailer w/ utility box and 40hp Merc EFI will be around 18K,
Boats will not be sold as bare hulls nor will they sold without power or trailer unless they are sold for use on a houseboat .
As with any custom boat anything is possible. feel free to request anything.

Your Metal Bros.
Kenny

That looks like the Cougar Cub that I designed for Cougar in the early 80's. We built it as a stunt, to go along with the racing teams full-size cats. We had the Cub Worlds in Key West in 1983, with 116 entries. All the big guys drove, Copeland, Sirois, Morales, etc. Men's champ, Tommy Akouri, Black Duck, Women's champ, Crystal Girschner, Blue Max.

I was wondering if you were involved with this in the beginning because I am pretty familiar with your past. I aquired the molds from Sparky @ Vicious Marine, when did you guys stop building these? The insert is a great idea btw.

We stopped in 1985 when the Limeys went home. If you build them light, they run well. We licensed other manufacturers back in the day, including Kaama (Betty Cook, John Connor).
