That's a legitimate question! Cougar run a racing series, have a long history in powerboat racing and this hull is derived from the race boat (I think).

It is my understanding, mainly due to a long and informative conversation with you, that Ali tanks are far more suited to high speed planing craft. I was wondering if Cougar fitted them as standard and not trying to kick off the 'my Ali tanks better than your SS tank' debate!

I don't know what they use, but I rather doubt it's Stainless Steel.

The Formula 1 RIBs (200hp) are just about pulling 70 mph in good conditions - and you're still trying to squeeze an extra 0.25 of a mile an hour out of it all the way round the Island!

I can now report with the change to a 200XS (the race version of the Optimax) that we are now doing over 75 if flat conditions!
