Wouldn't it be easier to fit another jockey seat to PD's boat than chop the shit out of the cobra that you originally asked about?

Seems very Logical!
Unless you commission a bespoke new build to suit your needs exactly ( which may change anyway) your VERY unlikely to just fall on the Perfect Boat!!..
Pikeys is most certainly a Top Notch no expence spared High spec RIB/Dive Boat!

PDs rib is indeed a top notch dive rib, no expense spared.

Sadly it is well outside my budget.

I've had a 2003 7.5m Cobra for just over a year.
Couldn't be happier and we've been out in rough ( one very rough ) and smooth seas. If it's got the 225 onto on the back then the prop will make a lot of difference to how it runs but I've been happy with stability and turning at most speeds with nothing unexpected. Tubes on mine are original and rubbing strake now needs replacing as its getting a bit stiff and so peeling off at the rear ( any suggestions of the best place to go around Anglesey for this would be appreciated).

Happy to answer any questions if I can help.

Good luck.

Fitting another seat wouldn't be a major job & the price has been substantially reduced from the price in the first post. Currently up at 27950.
Go on, treat yourself, it's Christmas
