Re: Trailer

Heritage and Eagle were the two others I looked at, but I didn't have a good reason not to go with my dealer at the time.

Re: Trailer

Big block, have you ever tried EZ Loader? It's what my local Cobalt dealer orders, and it reminds me of Eagle in many ways.

Re: New Cobalt Boat for sale - CS1 21'

I think it depends on the audience. We love our 210, but it's usually just the two of us or sometimes the two of us and another couple or a couple nieces. It could be a great fit for that kind of use.

Re: Trailer

I like springs because they are a little simpler mechanically, but even my old Acura Integra had a torsion bar suspension that worked just fine. As for galvanized, I think one of the tiebreakers for me would be whether I left it outside exposed to the elements, or whether it was an inside boat/trail...

Update hassle

So a new version of the BBS software came out, and broke the board for most of a day. We've obviously lost some things (but not much), and it should be more stable going forward. I'm working on it...

Re: Outboard resurgence.

Tuscany, as a Vikings fan, all I can say is we blew four Superbowls first. One of these days we'll win one, but it's looking less and less like it will be in my lifetime...

Re: Outboard resurgence.

Yet more evidence that big luxury boats are looking harder at outboards, even in the 40+ foot cruiser range:

Re: Boat Show Season

Bogblock, it has a handful of stuff in the 30-40 foot range, but more aluminum lake fishing boats than I knew existed. I have to imagine Chicago is in another class, and even Milwaukee may have more larger boats due to being on Lake Michigan. That said, I can always spend several hours poking around...
