I've seen it also, but I think it is the 5.5 version - do cobra have a 5.3? I don't think so...

it's a good looking "rough" weather rib but the engine makes me doubting... it's an old one!

Yes, the initial line up of Cobra ribs from the early '90s included a 5.3

I've never used one, but those old 5.3 Cobras always struck me as being too beamy for their length. They look as if they come out of the same mould as the longer Cobras from that era.

Fuel filler?
With such a wide beam at 5.3m, does it have a shallow V?
