HI: I thought I may have the oldest cobia still in use but maybe not! I bought mine new in Nov. of 1972 and I am still using it today. The 165 HP engine and outdrive is original. Great boat. I would like a new one but I can't wear this one out! Oh, I forgot to mention that the engine is the original Mercruiser, 165 HP stright 6 cyl. That was when Mercrusier was using GM 250 Cu In. engins. Thanks for asking.

David

This is my 1978 17' sportsman. I am the third owner. It has the original 120 4cyl. and OMC out-drive. Both work flawlessly, I am in the process of getting the rest of the boat back into good shape. Sorry about the bad pics but were mostly at night...more pics to be posted in the daylight hours.
