Pensacola Cougar New Member

Hello to everyone,
I simply need (not just love) the shape of a sail with wind in it. I've been found by an old (1969 Not that old to me 1951) Cougar cat that I'm itching twitching to launch. I got a cat because of the low draft (not the speed of course) and because although I've always wanted a great big monohull but have since realized that it's smarter to know someone who needs crew on a great big monohull or even better a great big cat.
I've sailed with my friend on his 30' Morgan in Carlisle IL and we and our families went to the BVI for two weeks in 1999 and I got my first taste of a cat in Jamaica in 2010 and so I was hooked. Anyone who has knowledge of Cougar sailing cats especially with a foil roller furling jib, please get in touch.
I should have joined this group a long time ago,
Thanks,
Mark

Welcome. Do I understand you're in Pensacola? If you are, I'll be glad to connect you with local multihull people. PM me if you would.

I've never heard of a 'cougar' catamaran... I Googled the term and only got powerboat references.

Re: Pensacola Cougar New Member

The Cougar is just almost exactly like a Shark. It's almost 19' long, has deep hulls, but is all fiberglass as opposed to the Sharks wood deck. I believe it was first made in England and then I'm not sure but it may have been made in Minnesota (maybe). Mine was made in 1969. I have seen a cat that is claimed to be a Cougar that looks alot like a Hobie for sale in New Zealand. Anyway, I'm looking forward to sailing her and I'll share here how she does.

Re: Pensacola Cougar New Member

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here even if you are not a cougar as advertised. It doesn't matter to me. I'm way too old for cougars anyway. Love to see a picture of your cat.
kind regards,
