Cobalt put out a quality product back then. My wife's uncle has a Ski Ray OB. It's an okay boat, but the wake is a little harsh. It was AWSA approved in the early 90s. Not sure if the Cobalts had that approval or not.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

There is a guy on one of the lakes we ski at in Northern Wisconsin with a Ski Ray OB. Very cool boat. They foot behind it a a fair amount.

Found this pic on the google

If I remember right Cobalt bought the Hydrodyne molds. Must not have gone they way they wanted.

I can't believe I'm saying this but Cobalt makes a nice I/O and their price point is at the upper end which keeps them from being like belly buttons i.e. everyone has one. If I am ever in the situation where an I/O is the only type of boat I can own and have the coin I will go with a Cobalt.

I remember back in 93 - 94 looking at WSM BBG and wanting a Ski Ray 190 OB. I had little exposure at the time to a good inboard or ski course and loved the concept of that boat. I think I remember seeing that the cobalt was awsa approved but would need to look it up.

When I say the two remind me of each other, it is in the sense that the 2 boat mfg's are quality mfg's but producing ski boats was outside of their core production.
