What is this? Being touted as a 1981 30' Wellcraft Cougar Cat. I've never heard of such a thing, and to me it looks very similar to a 30' Excalibur hull, but the deck is completely different, as are the body lines on the hull. I'm really interested in the boat, I'd remove that hideous glass windshield, and respray the boat all stark white. My 496 stroker motors would fit nicely in it too

Looks like a strange beast.

Congrats on selling the mistress. I thought you were geting out of the project business?

Narrow beam, narrow tunnel, lots of deadrise and probably weighs a ton. That old girl has "pig" written all over her.

Not that much of a project . . . simple accessory swap onto my new longblocks . . . quick paint, could be a neat toy with a pair of 650's in it

I like the trip bar on the swim platform.....watch out.

How would you sell something like that w/o giving it away?

I've seen a 30ft wellcraft cat. A guy had it at a Poker Run on Texoma a couple of years ago. Nice guy, REAL nice boat. It looked like a chris cat. It had a different deck with lower freeboard and twin BBCs.

Looks like another experiment of splitting a V bottom in half and adding a 2 ft wide tunnel.

NADA shows 2 models of 30' Cougar Cats.
