Maybe it’s the artist in me. But this is Erotica! Oh yea.. On many levels.

Well, after some time, here we are with some beautiful photos of the Katz’s Marina Prototype Cobra. You may recall some of the drama from this past Fall. if not, just move on, if so, she is now getting her first round of build up coats. She is plugging along at Katzs Marina Speed. I will let the photos do the talking. Happy Friday!

    Wow! That’s going to be Beautiful when finished!
    Hope to see it at the Mt Dora Show in a few months.

    Matt, How many days till the show?
    Can’t wait to get the boat back out!

    Good timing of this update with all the posts and pictures of hot cars yesterday. Unfortunately now I can’t get The Rip Chords song “Hey Little Cobra” out of my head. Great Cobra racing video on YouTube – I just don’t know how to post it here.

    Spectacular! Thanks for bringing us up to speed! Looking forward to more.

  4. Mark in Ohio (today in Florida 🌴)

    Coming along nice👍 I hope these pictures do not open up a can of worms.

    Is the nose design different than the production boats? It looks less bulbous and perhaps a better fit with the other lines of the boat.

        HAHAHA, good one. By the way, it was a fun time at katzs when all that happened. No one was hurt. Just fun banter with pals. At least thats the way I recall it? The Prototype is true Katzs perfection to the extreme detail

          Fun banter with pals? I recall any “negativity”being subject to censorship.

    So glad I caught this update. Sometimes a boat during restoration looks sooo gorgeous you just want to stop and leave it just like that. Most of those photos gave me that feeling.

    Are the king plank and covering boards stained yellow or is that actually blond stain that looks yellow. The boat looks super cool. They are doing a great job bringing it back to life.

    Looks familiar! Here is my ’56 Continental about a year ago.

    Looks great! Look forward to seeing more. Wonder what kind of values can a prototype bring, as compared to a production?

    Beautiful work. True Industrial Art! Will it be ready for the Mount Dora Show?

  11. Nick Arnone

    It looks great. I am sure because it’s a Katz’s creation it will be perfect. However, why not redesign the bottom to ride and handle better?

      Didn’t I read that someone has a Cobra with a deep V hull on it? I am curious how that would be. Sounds like a great option for the big lakes.
