Well, I've decided to take the plunge and head for Offshore and the 18'er just ain't gonna do the trick! I'm looking at 28-32 ft sport fisherman style boats. Therefor, it's time to part with the center console.

1999 18' Cobia Center Console (purchased in Aug. of 99)
W/ 115 Yamaha Salt Water Series Outboard, Loadrite Trailer, Raymarine FF/depth sounder, Garmin 180 GPS with chip, and Lenco Trollin Tabs w/ 2-12v, series 27 batteries and a Guest Onboard battery Charger. Asking $18000.
I have all the reciepts for maintaining, minor repairs and both professional winterization and spring commissioning, as well as storage at the dealer where I bought it.
The hull design and the extra wide beam (8'-6") lend to the very comfortable and dry ride in the waters around New England, I've run around with friends in Parkers, Maritime Skiffs and Aquasports and they just can't keep up, This boat handles herself real well. One reason I bought this boat was the high freeboard, I have 2 small kids and felt much safer for them, what I came to realize was that I also got the benifit while out in rough weather, which I have been alot.
I'll try to get a few pictures up soon. If your interested, pm me and we will talk. If sold thru this site, a small donation will be made to FFF.

Brian I would gladly buy your boat. It's a great ride, based on my ride during the last Boneclave.
My problem is that buying enough salt around here would likely ruin me. Whoever buys this beaty will get a great boat! Only wish I were living East & clsoer to the salty stuff.

Sh*#, 1, 2 or 3 years too early (been actively softening up resistance on the home front).

Pete, the delivery charges would choke me, but thanks for the kind words.
Fred, try convincing the wife to go the big boat routine!:whoa:

Fred, bigger boat means more room for that beach chair up on the front deck fro the lady (in between running and gunning !!! )

Another time, another place, and I would be all over that! I hope she finds a good home.

Based on the hookups I've enjoyed on board, it's a lucky vessel. Thanks for taking us out Brian, my son still talks about that day.

She's a beauty!

Severely tempting.


10-22-2003, 04:09 PM
That was a GREAT day, one I'll remember for a long time. I still crack a grin just thinking of how Jimmy kept us in stitches ALL DAY. Made it tough to pull in the fish, but what a blast!:hehe:

10-22-2003, 04:20 PM

I still owe you lunch from our day OTW if you are still in Boston. Things have slowed down at work so I should have some time. Let me know if you want to hook up.


10-22-2003, 04:45 PM
Sean, I'm still there, just upstairs, but you might NOT want to be seen with "The Enemy". The noise police are everywhere!
Call me anytime, I'm allways hungry!:whoa:

10-22-2003, 05:44 PM
You guys do make a lot of noise. Sounds like you are rebuilding the Pyramids up there.


10-22-2003, 06:16 PM
And we have been trying to be quiet! You should hear it when we don't care.:tsk_tsk:

Sorry to see that the boat is about to depart. As Juro said, that was a great day. The best part was to listen to Juro. " No son. This is how you cast a fly line!" And then the son saying something about the fathers age and farting dust. All I now is on that day the son out fished the father.:devil: I was sure that the father or son was going to be in the water at some point. Oh well....You can't have everything.:hehe:

I was actually afraid I was gonna go over the side from holding my sides laughing. One fun trip, we gotta do it again with a BIGGER boat!:eyecrazy:

So flipping tempting, but my better half would give me hell for even mentioning it. I just got a boat this summer, but its a little small for my interests, and one like yours is more the way to go. But darn, its winter, and the cross county drive would be tough!


11-04-2003, 05:48 PM
AWW, it's not THAT far, she would understand.:hehe:
That's Puget Sound, CT. Right?

Well, it's been put away for a long winters nap. Here's to wishing it's not THAT long. Several have stated that , "in the spring, if it's still available, I'll buy it !" So, until then it's still mine and thats something I feel good about. I'm not convinced that I want to sell it, in fact I know I do not. I have too many GOOD TIMES on this boat, and it's gonna break my heart to sell.
Happy Thanksgiving and have a SAFE winter season.

Well, seasons change and spring is here. The new boat has been bought and paid for. Now, it's time for the fire sale, I'm stickin with the fall discount price even after the added cost for winterization, misc. maintenance, storage and summerizing...
She will be out of storage on the 15th of April and ready for seatrials that weekend.

04-13-2004, 04:03 PM
HELP! I got an e-mail about the boat late last weekend and dumped it. Sorry, but if you try again, I promise to NOT be so STUPID again! :o
