(The beauty part is, of course, in the eye of the beholder!)
Depends on the Humber of course but deeper V hull and a nice upswept bow with fat tubes.

cobras are more leisure orientated, very nice boats, but one look at the design tells you its not designed as a true rib "4x4 equivalent of the sea" they are a little prone to stuff, and water evacuation is a bit of an issue. humbers on the other hand have deeper vee, upswept bow, and water evacuation isnt an issue with large elephant trunks at rear!

not to say i dont like cobras, i do, they are incredibly pretty boats, no doubt can handle some choppy weather too, just not as well as some others! but i picture one in the med, somewhere sunny with calmer waters where you can snorkel (in warm water) and sun bathe etc..........not my image of british waters, in the main haha

Carly, I did buy it from Mark, and yes it was towed up Lymington river, having "stuffed" and engine bay full of water it started the following day with new relays but refused after the weekend. There is a 3 inch pipe in the console that takes all the control cables to the engine bay - suffice to say water finds it own level - there is ahigh tube being put on the pipe!
