Great job !
That is a sharp hull . Everything is phenomenal . Good luck .
Who built the instrument panel ? That's a work of art .

Anybody remember "Totally AWESOME "Another great COUGAR ,owned by Elliot Sutton . In 1986 we got her from England and it was a blast .We raced her in 1988-thru 1991 and then kept it as a pleasure boat for while.
Finally in 1997 just after we restored the boat ,New paint ,new upholstery etc...i was testing the boat and it caught on fire and burned to the waterline !
The end of a great boat !

Your Cougar has character . I do appreciate the soft , rounded " modern " look , but when I see this hull there is no mistake , it's a Cougar .
Beautiful job . Your boat will be the star at any poker run .
