Can you identify this boat?

It's obviously an Aire but I've never seen this tube configuration.

The standard cougar has two of the same size tubes on each side. as in the picture below. So would that just be a custom cougar?

Do yourself a favor and don't google image search "Aire cougar asymmetrical tubes".

Or do, but it's all porn. Whoops, sorry boss.

my guess is that it is a prototype, but hopefully Aire will chime in and clear it up.

I think it was an early run before the cougar. I've seen 2 or 3 of them over the years and the owners all seem to have different stories. I saw a 2 color purple one on the Main Salmon last year.

That is strange... usually - on sail boats and big rigs for big water - if there's a difference in the tube diameter the smaller ones are on the outside. Might have just been rigged wrong...
