Default Cougar/Flight Marine

Does anyone know anything about or have checked out the 30 Flight Cat at Proroc in NJ?

Scarabman: Just wondering how it looks in person. I believe its been there for a long time. Is that supposed to be a middle seat between the sponson cockpits? Do you know any history on the boat?

I think this is a "Flight" cat, NOT a Cougar-maybe Brownie would know? This boat was raced in the early 1980's as "Challenge". I think a Bob Esposito from Toms River ran it. It appears to be cosmetically rough, but sound. This was a sister boat to Bobby Sheer's "Sheer Terror". I wish I knew more-I do have pics of it as a race boat-someplace. Hope this limited info helps.....
