Cobra Ribs

Been looking at replacing our Tornado with something a bit bigger and with bench seats for my ageing tired backside, please line up with your thoughts on 6mtr Cobra's.
Thanks Jeff.

Mines am older 6.6 and I like it. Just had a refurb, details on here in the gallery.
I had a tornado 4.8m before this and love the extra space and the layout.

Evening mate, ours is a 4.8 tornado and has been a great boat, I followed your refurb and what a finish without going back to your thred, did you keep the tubes and are they still OK ? I only have a small'sh budget so it will be a big step up for us to something like a cobra/ribeye

Renewed the tubes on the tornado.

Cobra ones are fine but being white get grubby easily.
