Nearly

Just made this post on ybw.com so I'll just paste it here.

Well here we are in sunny Southampton

OK that bit was a lie, the weather is truly crap. But I've just come from Cougar and MAGNUM FORCE is looking truly stunning

Can't post any pics from here but she looks a million dollars. All carbon fibre and rubber Still not quite finished due to dash replacement but should be in the morning. We then finally get her in the water for as long as we want to brave the weather.

Some nice personal touches from Cougar - his'n'her Cougar jackets, Crewsaver lifejackets and mooring lines personalised with MAGNUM FORCE on. Also fire extinguisher, fenders, proper pump and a great big shiny propeller

Will report back when I have more news.

Sounds like the least they could have done considering the delays. Love these Cougars - hope you enjoy

Cheers

Have had our R8 for two years now, it was one of the first built and it still makes me grin when we go out on it. Some friends have bought a Pascoe SY10 for a lot more money and we are not far off the pace with them.
You will love it, one extra we had was the small screen on the console to push the wind over the top- well worth it!!
Impressed with the Cougar jackets!! We had to get our own!!

Picked our R8 up from Cougars today and saw yours being given the full valet treatment- it looked very good, Cougars have certainly done an excellent job on it.
Get it picked up and get out playing on it.
