28 Cougar , Raced in 1993 I think. This pic is from Marathon. I don't know too much about the boat. I think Marshall Ives raced it.

I missed the "for Ted" part. What has brought about the interest in the English Cougars? I've got some good pictures on my other computer. 28' and I believe 25'.

Thanks Ryan!!!! I am trying to get some ideas for paint/graphics since we might be doing a kind of retro restore job on this thing. At least we already have the V8's for it Would really appreciate anything anyone has.

Thanks Again

P.S. I need a couple more stickers, I'll e-mail you shortly.

Ted, Ryan,

Here is one more photo of a 28' Cougar, this was driven by Steve Curtis (Clyde's son-owner of Cougar) during the 1982? World Championship in Key West. Steve lost control while testing after a shrimp boat went by and kicked up a steep 4-5' wave. I saw this coming and got a few good shots of it loosing control. Hope this link works.
Ted, what boat are you restoring?

Thanks Bob. I have no idea what my boat looked like when it was racing. I got it from Sparky at Viscous Marine. He said it used to run on the Great Lakes. Heck-it might be that one
