Boat came out really nice V.............that will be a great family boat and should hold you for some time even as your family grows.

As far as the rear bench goes don't feel like the "Lone Ranger"!!

I can still remember Scotch tape 500 had one fly out on Rice road and someone actually showed up with in in Parker......amazing!!

In my case the very first time I took out my absolutely Perfect Donzi Sweet 16 (and new to me) I was going so fast that it flew out of the boat 1/2 way to the city, never to be found as we were in the front having so much fun that we didn't even notice it fly out:grumble:................we spent 3 hours looking for it but it was no where to be found, hang in there and just enjoy yourself on the Dam Run:champagne::champagne:

The interior looks really nice. I like all of the stitching. It looks simple and clean but not too busy. How did the hatch turn out

The hatch is awesome. I was going to home headrests but decided not too so the wife and friends could lay out. My brother said that's his favorite part of the boat lol

Got some white tape did the best I could and I'm going boating
You know what.....no one but you will probably notice that this weekend but if you're anything like me it will kill you everytime you look at it:grumble:....you must of been hauling ass on the freeway for it to go flying out like that......doesn't it have Velcro and/or something else to hold it in at speed.....unless the fastest that boat will ever go is on the trailer you may want to add some :D.....have fun!

That looks way better than i imagined. Im sure they can recover it no prob. They better have velcro on it or I would say its Cobras fault.

Boat looks great. Don't worry about the seat cause it can be fixed later. Just focus on the fun your going to have in a great boat

You are making me want to charge cobra with making me a new 230. Let me know how it handles all around! That thing looks awesome! What's the power?

Ok so my previous boat was a bayliner 195. Yesterday was my first time ever driving a performance boat. I don't even know how to compare the two because it just isn't possible. I very quickly realized how much power I had when I blipped the throttle at the docks. Felt like the whole boat was going to jump out of the water. It's so much more responsive and actually much easier to drive. Not going to lie it's honestly a little intimidating. I didn't open it all the way up but this thing moves! Turns really nice and I love the feeling I get when I'm cruising then hit it. It takes off like a Porsche and then the trim is like a turbo button lol. Can't wait to go launch right now. I feel like a little kid that just got his first dirtbike for Christmas yesterday lol

What a great event to break in the new boat......the route of the "Dam Run" is one great routes especially when the basin is being nice :D

I hope you have years of enjoyment and memories for the family with your new boat....she's a real beauty!!!:thumbsup:thumbsup

New controls are installed the gas gauges are both working. I believe they are going to add the trim control to the transom next week and work on the hatch. Should b completely dialed in can't wait to get it on the water by myself next weekend to actually see what it can really do [emoji106][emoji106][emoji4][emoji4][emoji51][emoji51]big thanks to cobra they've been great throughout the entire build and even after making sure the boat is 100% ImageUploadedByTapatalk1414943966.162003.jpg
