Another Cobalt owner here: 2007 Cobalt 226 ... Alex Barry of Cobalt told me this was one of the last five 226 hulls Cobalt still had when their fiscal year ended, and their bean counters said they had to call them 07's, even though everything I've found online says the 226 ended in '06. Also a big block Merc 496 (8.1L) Bravo III 375 HP. Apparently I like expensive red vehicles with high-powered V8's! This one does 63 mph, with 2 of us, top down and half fuel. I bought it new, and sadly we've just never used it much. Has only 58 hours on it! It's such a perfect thing even just to look at or climb in and sit! Haha! I suppose this means I understand how some guys buy a new GT and just let it sit while they stare at it in their garage, although frankly I feel like it's kinda been a waste to not use it more. In fact, this boat situation is part of the reason I bought a GT: I thought, If I'm gonna have an expensive secondary vehicle, it should at least be more accessible than having to haul it to the water to use it (we're about 45 mins from water). Sorry, no pics of it on the water.
I used to have a Fountain. One that I custom ordered new and had to completely disassemble and reconstruct due to the horrible quality of construction. Yes, rebuild the stringers, bulkheads and entire deck.
