Default New toy in the Toy Box...

This followed me home this evening. It's an all original 1985 Mini Hawk with a same vintage 25HP Mercury. It needs some oxidation remover and a few new trailer rollers, but its in great shape. I got it up to 25mph via the pitot speedo on the seatrial. We've got a creek that opens to a river 300 yards from the house, and this is perfect for such.

Get this:
When I get to the guy's house, he has a picklefork jetboat and a strangely familiar Cougar tucked neatly in the garage. We shot the chit for a while and it turns out it is THIS Cougar:

He bought it from the guy in the video & his brother who did the "production".

There was one for sale locally recently for $1600, nice shape. I would have bought it in a heartbeat if I didnt already have 2 small boats in the garage.
