Hello from Calif

Post by mluters » Tue Feb 24, 2015 2:32 pm

I picked up my first Cobalt about 6 months ago...2011 262 WSS 8.1 HO 420HP with 39 hours. Love the Cobalt ride and quality and can't wait to get back on the water next month. I will be using it at Lake Mohave and Lake Mead. Also visit Lake Powell every year in July.

This thing is sweet. How do you like the 420? Heard the lakes out there are pretty low right now how's boating been?

I really like the 8.1L 496 HO...great hole shot and very responsive mid range for a boat this size. It really pulls this boat around without much trouble...I've had 11 adults on board and it still gets up and goes

I visit Lake Mohave the most and because it's one of the smaller lakes along the Colorado river chain it stays between 95%-100% full all the time. Lake Mead and Lake Powell are having a lot more trouble...I visit Powell every year for a week in July and even though it's down quite a bit, it's still very usable. Lake Mead looks the lowest and they have closed marina's due to the low water levels...so I haven't been there in quite a few years.

Here is a youtube video of our last year's trip to Lake Powell:


Anyone who is into boating needs to make at least one trip to Lake Powell because the scenery is unbelievable.

Ha! Me too.

Boat is nasty and the backdrop is crazy - looks like your boating on Mars.

Nice photos! What makes the stars pop in the last one? Are they drawn in, or is it a composite?
