William Cox and family are enjoying life in their Cobalt 226. As you can see, they enjoy incredible sunsets and beaches at Sebago Lake, Maine. If I get to Maine, William, I’d like to go for a little zip around the patch with you in your 226!
In his own words, William gives us the low-down.
“We live in Simsbury , Ct and own a 226 with Volvo Penta 5.7 GXi ….bought used a few years ago …love the boat ..it’s look , feel , performance … put in the wood kit ..( looks like cherry wood ) …black “sport” paint with black covers and bimini . Wake is a little big for the slalom skiers in the family but a great wake board boat. Do all our boating at Sebago Lake , Maine … and the 226 handles the big lake water well. Have been tempted to add the additional swim platform but find that we often beach the boat with stern out and think the boat may get knocked around more ….
Have a trailer ….only used for storage. Will never sell her …
hopefully I can continue to get gas without ethinol so the engine lasts ….love the counter rotation props … but a little clumsey when docking compared to other boats I have owned…. perhaps I need a lesson. The 226 does not have a mark on her …. I will not allow it …. drives my wife nuts….but my son and daughter are in my camp!”
