Yea, the boat is not a serious offshore boat. It does handle great and you can't beat the ride. But it is a Cobalt and Cobalt boats are not famous for being light. I have driven several, not too impressed with the center driving position or the windshield or the cabin. For $300+ grand you could buy a faster boat. Mabey not a better constructed boat, but a faster one none the less.
Oh, BTW how serious of a offshore boat can it be with an anchor on the front? That my friends is just not right!
