Cougar Daytona 19' Model

I've owned a couple of the Cougar V-Drive tunnels. I believe I bought the original black and orange gel coat racer in 1982 and ran that with Fraser Valley Drag Boat Association for many years. It was a 1979 hull I think. The center pod was deeper and above 105 mph or so it would start to chine. I was getting close to getting hurt a few times so in 1988 or so I ordered a new one, the primarily orange one #6 in the photos. The center pod was the same depth as the two outer pods.

Carlson Manufacturer

They only made these for a for 4 or 5 years. Only made 2 to 6 any year they made them. 1964 -1966 it was called the Carlson inboard. 1967 it was changed a bit and they called it the Cyclone. Does your have a Carlson Marine plate in it? If you were to talk to Art Carlson he would say you have a copy because he said most of his are on the bottom of a lake someplace. Several in Havasu. Seems a lot were copied from his hulls. So it might not be a real Carlson. I have a lot of info on them. If you want to know what I have learned PM me and I will give you my phone number.

Bullet Fiberglass Manufacturer

Taken from http://bulletfiberglass.com/history

Some may wonder where we came up with the name Bullet Fiberglass. Bullet was my best friend. We did everything together. That miniature schnauzer ate more human food than some humans do and I spoke more dog to him than most dogs did. We got along great. With Bullet at my side and my son Brien on the other we set out to take on the world and chase our dreams with Bullet Fiberglass.
