Cool New Toy - BLUE THUNDER

Found this old boat at a repair shop and it had been sitting for a really long time. Made a deal on it and brought it home. Pulled the nests out of the exhaust. Charged the batteries, and voala. Using the loosest interpretation of the world "functional", most everything seems to work. Need to figure out how to handle it, but it is a rocketship once it gets on plane.

Used to be named "BLUE THUNDER". Anyone know this boat?

Yeah, old Cougar. I didn't know that they even made them in fiberglass.

Or it might even be a different company than the ones that were made out of aluminum.

That is the best description yet. That is actually the naked ***** seat. I am going to put in fur padding for them and some handles.

850's and #4's. I have heard some pretty fast numbers, and after sitting in the seat, I think it will get there.

I need some seat time to figure out how to run it.
