Remember this!!

Started out as 'Cougar Lamboughini' with Richard Carr in 1991, 30 years on and now being lovingly restored in Michigan, America by Dave Wesseldyk.

Some 5000 new rivets have been put back after a total strip down of this famous Catamaran that we all know so well.

What a fantastic job!

Good luck Dave, many thanks for your pictures.
