Not sure, I thought both the gekko and infinity were DD inboards. We had a member with a gekko about 6 or 7 years ago. I never got to ski behind it, but remember it had a very low profile and a high top end. The infinity, I skied @ skiwatch in the florida panhandle and it was a nice skiing machine (what do u expect from rob shirley?)

Nope. Infinity was, as noted, Rob Shirley's mid engined v-drive.

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.

Can't upload pic on phone....

Anyways, my uncle had this boat when I was a kid. Didn't know anything about it other than it sounded cool, had a small wake, and always seem to take water in over the bow. Great fun though!

scorpion - me like!

The look of the Scorpion boat is interesting. Drop a 400hp engine in there, I bet it would scoot! Practical? Maybe not.

The Cobalt ski boats were built using Hydrodyne molds that Cobalt bought. They redesigned the top deck, but below the rub rail its all Hydrodyne Grand Sport. Definitely a great example of a ski boat odd ball.

Interesting. I recall reading that they were quite heavy.
