Re: Check in from Southern Indiana

Didn't they only make it for a few years? That, plus it being 10+ years old by now...

That said, good boats, just not super common.

Re: LOOKING FOR A SUNDECK & BACK SEAT 1994 COBALT 220

Well, I know of one guy who would buy one if it showed up on Ebay :)

Just joking - hope you get your original cover back and find a more reputable shop to help you out!

Re: 2001 293 Water Pump?

Liquid, good point - that's the fresh water system only, right? The fresh water system is 12V, in the rear of the boat but not on the engine (I think it's on the right as you face the rear, but Bigblock may know more). There's separate raw water for engine cooling, which is what I was thinking about...

Re: 2001 293 Water Pump?

Re: LOOKING FOR A SUNDECK & BACK SEAT 1994 COBALT 220

That's a tough search - 1994 just isn't that old for a Cobalt. Any chance you could at least get the originals back with the help of the Sheriff or something? Maybe a small claims court-type thing? Bigblock may know someone who can build something up without having the boat in front of them, but tha...

Re: R7 380 vs 430 - any hands on?

What Tuscany says meshes with what I've heard - expect 50mph out of the 380, and just shy of 55mph out of the 430. Either of the new engines are more fuel efficient and develop more torque at lower rpm than the old 6.0l engines, so I'd go with a new 6.2l 380 over an old 6.0l 430 unless I really need...

Re: New guy from Maryville, TN

That 5.7L seems to be a rock. There's the odd fuel pump or riser issue here and there, but the engines are great. Should be a solid boat for a long time to come.

Re: major service history of our boats...

I have a 2014 with no major service - just oil changes, winterizing, and the usual stuff. The boat is:
Cobalt 210
Volvo V8-225
Duo Prop outdrive
fresh water - 100 hours?
