Here's a restorable one on ebay...not exactly what you're looking for but it looks like it has history and would be quite a project

Chatim Racing,
I envy you. I too really like the old raceboats. I wish I had the money and time to restore a old raceboat. I'd love to have a old Cougar Cat, maybe the Michelob Light/Arneson.
I bet a great person to talk to would be Ryan Beckley, he really knows the history of Offshore Racing and where MOST of the old boats are... Keep us posted on what you end up with.

Yes, that's it. They (Lee Mills and his brother Mickey) had a few of these Larry Smith Scarabs during the early 90's. Probably had "Evolution" written down the side. Never met either of them.

It's alot of boat for the price. Detailed ad with more pics is in the Classifieds. Thanks for the compliment. Are you building a new Saber?
