No, that one looks like one of the fibreglass versions. I believe only two of the Aluminum hulls were made, George Morales (Later Popeyes) and Tim Ciasulli's.

Brownie would know better as he built them

That is absolutely superb. It's a treat to see these older boats updated in a truly thoughtful and creative way. Our hats are off to you...

I am very impressed! I remember so long ago reading in "Boating" magazine the test on the 46 couger and I loved the looks of the boat. So different and cool! I am going to have to see if I can dig up that old magazine.

Can't wait to see more!

So why don't boating magazines cover this type of restoration.

Extreme Boats does some stuff along these lines. Mainly because they need more advertising dollars to stay in business.
