Dunno to be honest, Mark Pascoe told me the other day that he'd had a call about, and that it was getting the gas turbine treament.

Last time I saw it was in Colin Stoneman's yard,, looking very sorry for itself

I looked at an old Cig 35 south of Philly several years back. Probably '01. The seller had an old 38' aluminum cat- ex race boat, blue w/Arnesons on it. He was pretty far along installing turbines in it. Used an old outboard for reverse- it was in a hole in the rear between the engines. IIRC, I believe the seller owned golf courses.

Chris I did the converison on that blue boat. It was the an old seahawk race boat. I will try and post some pic when I can. We stretched the hull 2 feet and installed GE T58 turbines with a 70hp jet outboard

Hey Brownie:

Darren and I ran into Stevie Curtis over the weekend. He looks great and just received the M.B.E. (Member of the British Empire). He hasn't lost a beat...and he throttled Reliable to a strong win in Super Cat on Sunday.....

It wasn't a Cougar.......but it was a cat.

Steve is one of my favorite people. I'm glad Liz and Charlie recognized his accomplishments.

He's one of mine too........ He chatted up Darren quite a bit, who reminded him that we hadn't seen him in 10 years....
Then they talked "technical stuff".........

Time goes by..... and by ......and by.

Jon its lethal menace that's getting the turbine treatment along with some serious hull mods and a full re-design of the cockpit.
The hull has had a centre pod fitted along with an ASD8 drop box and BPM stern tube.The drive is on, the engine is in just working on mounts and other time taking bits.
I might post a few spy shots soon!
