He was running a strong 80! YES I just opened the door for the Apache comments!
apache is a offshore boat not a lake boat.

Thumbs up Re: Beware of Cobalt, I can't believe I'm admitting this!

Beware:
There will be a few Cobalts running around this season with our new Raylar 496HOR motors in them. Ever heard the word "sleeper" Could be a issue!

I test drove the 343 w/502s. It should run faster than 80. Not sure what's holdng the stock version back...

Wink

The Cobalt 343 with Mercury's new 502HO at 430HP at the crankshaft is not going to push this boat anywhere near 80mph!! It would take probably a minimum of 600HP per side to get near those speeds.
