As the years go by, we hear time and many times again that the most memorable, and therefore the most critical, component of the Cobalt Experience is The Ride. You sit in the bow of a 220. You captain a 232. You relax rather completely on the lounge of a 276. And you notice almost nothing. No discomfiting thump as your Cobalt comes on plane. No unpleasant bouncing about at cruise.No slip and slide in the turns.
And no component of the Cobalt Ride matters more, contributes more, than the extended running surface, an abstract sort of deal if ever there were one. The marine engineering says that a boat’s ride smooths and stabilizes as more of the hull maintains contact with the water at speed. Existential, the effects of this contact.
The hull’s surface forces against the water – Cobalt fiberglass touching gulf and lake and river at cruising speed. And the results are unmistakable: quicker planning, firmer and truer turns, minimized bow rise, more lift astern and, when combined with the deep-V shape of the prototypical Cobalt hull, comfort and security so nearly perfect that . . . well . . . let’s tear across the bay again.
Just to feel The Ride once more.
