Cobra Terminator 3000

Longest, fastest, single engine cat. Wanted the longest to handle the big water and Cat to be fast and single engine for the cost factor. Plus I needed a place to put a new 502 magEFI with 725 HP and an intercooled supercharger. I bought it to showcase the supercharger and to be a dealer for Cobra.

Was looking for a reletively fast cat, twin I/O, 28 - 30' but did't have the $$$ for a Skater or Spectre. Found this Cobra with twin HP500's and in near perfect condition. Flew to see it and it was all I was looking for, but needed some minor rigging adjustments to really be dialed in. I've changed props, added GPS speedo, changed to GIL sea strainers and adjusted the water pick-ups.

After a few testing sessions, I'm blown away - can't wait for summer to get here!
