Default Wellcraft Cougar Cat - Pics wanted!

Search since years for more pictures and informations about the Wellcraft Cougar Cat 30' produced around 1981.

I own one since 4 months and started to restore it. All the wood in the stringers and the transom is rotten. I think many of you know such minor problems... One year later and you had to sweep it away, but I love this boat and want to do a perfect restoration - it shouldn't become a trailer queen.

So: I need all informations I can get, please search your archives and post here what you find!
Do some other Wellcraft Cougar's exist?

Thanks, Gerhard

That is not a magazine article - it is an original Wellcraft sales brocheure. He has had it for quite a while.

It's a Cougar Cat 900, for a few years in the 80's they were also made under licence by Wellcraft. My first job when I joined Cougar in 1978 was sanding the hull plug, in the arcives I should have plenty of pictures, these narrow tunnel cats were built for pleasure and military, we even built a self-righting version as a safety boat.

Hy, Cameron

Sorry for this, I had very much work last year. Founded my own company in Austria for offshore boats, engines, trailers and all around it: GM-POWERBOATS. Small, but let's see what I can do for the offshore boaters in Europe.
The other problem why your Scarab S-Type isn't still finished is that I HAD TO BUY the rare Wellcraft Cougar Cat too... (you know I love this one since years). But now we are working on both boats. Believe it!

More photos / informations soon!

-Gerhard-

Does no-one else have something for me about the Wellcraft Cougar Cat???

Default Cougar 900 - Military Version

Found a pic of a military version of the Cougar Cat 900...
I like also the gun - you see fast boats can also be safe!
