Hello from PA - CS3

Post by ixispy44 » Mon Oct 17, 2016 8:48 pm

Hello! Excited to join this forum and the Cobalt community! Was a Regal owner (1900 then 2100 - traded in 2100 for CS3) and can't wait for spring to get the boat in the water! Looking forward to getting to know everyone and enjoying the boat! Apologize for the not so great pictures. She's got a good amount of extras/accessories included that the dealer selected during build.

It would be fun to see more photos when you get it out and about. The CS3 is a bit of a departure for Cobalt, as is the new 25SD, and I haven't seen either in person on the water yet. Should be a lot of fun!

Thanks guys. Was able to get a few more pictures yesterday. I've seen some folks question the design or concept of this boat.. curious if there are specific deviations from the classic Cobalt heritage that may have some not so warm and fuzzy about this boat?

Some more specifics on the options included:
- Three color way navy, citron yellow with saddle interior
- 280hp VP duoprop
- Seagrass floor covering
- Dual batteries w/acr
- White arch w/bimini
- SeaDek platform mat
- Bow filler cushion
- Port aft filler cushions (we also ordered starboard so if we want we can have a full sun-pad and wrap around seating)
- Blue interior accent lights

Sweet boat.

I think a lot of people were unclear on the "island" rear seat and the reversible shotgun seat.

With the port and Starboard fillers this is a non issue, and I personally love the reversible front seat. Change is scary for some.

Nice color scheme, seagrass, sufficient power... that's a nice rig there. Congratulations and welcome to the forum.

How Sony like the bow filler cushion? Does it make a bigger difference for kids or adults?

We never take out the bow cushion. Best thing ever. All around just makes the area larger. 4 of my kids in tow up there. 25-22-19&13 year old up there.
