Here's my project. Some might recognize this as Boots old boat. If anyone has any other history on this boat it would be appreciated.

I bought my Active cat from Pete Smith [WOLVERINE], it was a fun boat, loved the whine of the KAMMA drive's. She ran in the 90's, a lota boat for around $18000.00. My big mistake was taking the wife and some friends for a high speed run around Lake St Clair, scared the Hell out of her, she said it had to go. She went out te next day a bought a 38' Scarab to insure the cat would go. I should have kept the cat and got rid of her, I did a few years later but the judge gave me her Scarab. But back to the cat, sold it to a local guy who never used it, he later pulled the 468cu chevy's and put them into a Cigarette. He later sold the cat and it went to Canada, then ? But now here on OSO there is one for sale that might be it, it's listed as a Cougar ? This cat sure looks like my Active, even the whole were the radio was. But the drives are gone looks like some typ of transom fix with adapter plates were the Kamma drives were ??? This boat ran well but not as good as the later 33' Image [Ocean Express] I rigged and was on the crew of the [MOTOR CITY MAGIC] Image cat, she ran 105 to 110 with 372cu 575hp smallblock chevy's, back in 1986 that was rockin !!!!
