hey cool . .speaking of old Cougars i just ran across this one today at a marina i do some biz with. it apears to never have been rigged. no holes drilled anywhere in the bilge but they did start to set it up for the Arnesons. my friend was asking what i thought it was worth, it was on a real nice trailer but my best guess was in the 15K range. any ideas if thats fair or not? i told him its very tough to sell boats like this because by the time you get done with it your into it for 150K plus and look what you can buy these days for that kinda $$$.

Big pictures Lanier!
I met Errol in Viareggio and Venice in 1979 in World Championships race. He was with Howard Quam in the Cougar 38' Benihana(former Yellowdrama III) of Rocky Aoki (badly injuried testing the Cobra 38' few days before the World Championships).
I will post you some my pics of your Daddy in Venice when I come back in Vilnius.

p.s. The Kaama cat it's not the former Flap Jack. That Cougar 38' was the winner of the World Championships in Venice in 1979 with Betty and Connors. Then Cook sold it to Howard Quam.

Sean, GREAT pics!!! Thanks very much for posting them. Do you have a website with a page that shows all of the pics that you are posting? If not, contact me and I would be glad to build you a web page either on my site or yours. I love those old race boats. I started racing in 1988 and I can't get enough of the boat cats, especially the Cougars. Hope your dad is doing well. Is he still building the small cat fishing boats?

Thanks, Ben
