    Default Selling 21' Cougar V-drive

    Hi guys, we've finally made up our minds to sell the boat. Kinda sad, but we've simply go too much stuff, and more vehicles than we have time to use, or space for. Thought we'd give y'all first shot at it. 734 668-7803

    More details about the boat to follow.

    Apologies, I've removed some of the numbers in this ad for legal reasons. Can give them to you over the phone. 734 668-7803

    21’ Cougar V-drive.
    This has been a fast, super-reliable boat for over 17 years…..ask anyone in the Michigan Hot Boats club. Can be cruised around all day, and then make a *** mph radar pass with four people in the boat without breaking a sweat, on pump gas. Rigging and setup are critical on a V-drive tunnel, and this one has been sorted out to work!


    Engine is set up as a mild, endurance, pump gas engine, not a maximum-effort drag engine.

    Still, has run *** mph at the drags (not a full power pass, and was slowing down through the traps). Don’t know what top speed is, never had the balls to find out. Guessing *** to ***.


    Boat hasn’t needed anything but routine maintenance since 1999. Find another triple digit boat with that kind of a track record! Partly, it’s because the motor isn’t working that hard. It’s only turning 5200 at *** mph. Again, this is all on pump gas, and it’s a nice heavy lake hull, not a lightweight.


    Blown 502 Chevy with 4 bolt Bow-Tie block, Chevy forged crank and rods, rectangular port heads, Manley stainless valves, Isky endurance springs, Crane steel roller rockers, Lunati roller cam, etc. Littlefield 6-71 blower (8 mm drive), NOS dual plate nitrous. J&S detonation sensing ignition (will retard individual cylinders) Last gone through by Tico Racing Engines. Dyno’d *** hp without the nitrous.


    Polished Casale 10 degree with 48 gears.

    Pro-Lite warning lights for low oil pressure, high water temp, low fuel pressure so you can keep your eyes on the water. Memory tach. Depth sounder


    Won first place, dragboat division at the 1997 Detroit Autorama. However, this is NOT a “billet aluminum work-of-art” boat. Just a very fast and reliable one with most things well thought out.

    The trailer is semi-funky-looking, but is well thought-out and works very well, including enough ground clearance to negotiate driveways etc. without scraping parts of the trailer or the rudder. Has a telescoping, removable tongue, long enough that you can turn past 90 degrees without a sponson hitting your tow vehicle. With the tongue removed (just need to remove one bolt), the trailer doesn't extend beyond the front of the boat.

    Pictured in Hot Boat magazine, page 102, January 07.

    $20,000.00. For an additional $4000, will include fresh spare engine (505” built Chrysler wedge, almost ready to drop in with mounts etc.

    "Aired out" at speed, Marble Lake drags, showing how well the setup and the air entrapment hull work, approaching the finish line buoy . Not much boat in the water. And no, that's not a photo of bouncing off a wake, but the "set" the boat will take at high speed. (may require a little up or down pedal from the driver, depending on whether one is running upwind or downwind). About ten years of experimenting and modifications to get it to that point.:

    Lots of people in our club have driven this boat in the high twin-digits, with me as a passenger. I'll usually pull the plug there, because while it's almost a foolproof boat to drive at ** or so, it requires more skill at the triple-digit level.

    Looks like the boat is sold, to a guy who came out from Pennsylvania to look at it. Put half down in cash, hasn't picked it up yet.

    Thanks everyone.
