Cobra On Ice!


Getting the Cobra in the water.

Thanks to Bob Kays and the gang at Katzs Marina, we can still pretend its all nice out there. Bob a week ago before the big chill was able to out Cobraing in 37 degree weather! And yes, Cobraing is a word now.


She is ready


The Cobra is just finished and is called Fiesty after Terry Fiest, Mr Cobra. Not his real name, but would be cool if he changed it. Mr and Mrs Cobra, and the little Cobraletts, there dog, Cobey! Anyway, today is a visual day and enjoy the beauty of another fresh Katz Cobra. Not to be confused with a Cat named Cobra.


Lets go!


Santa is driving!


Alan and Bob Clause.

Its summer sumplace! Just not here!


Headed back to Katzs marina




And safe at home. Until Florida!

    This time of year 37 is cold. Come March, 37 and sunny would be a perfect day to get back out on the water!

    Well, I’ve ridden in Fiesty in Florida when it was warmer but right now in 37 degrees, I’d prefer pictures of Matt and the Boatress downhill skiing around Boulder if they are still there or Park City or somewhere else near Salt Lake or wherever they are today.

    Woody Boating at any time in any weather is COOL!
    Santa just delivered my Brass Bell. Matt – the triple play, Inside cover, Inside fold and an article. Well deserved recognition for what you have done for the Woody Boater Community. I wish you and the Boatress safe travels and to all in Woodyboaterville A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Long Lake, IL.

    I love this “ghost” transom name. So it looks like they moved it up to covering board location instead of the transom –

    Always Love a Cobra story!

    Having grown up with three or four on Lake Cobbossee, I never knew they were so rare until much later in life.

    Noticed that the boat’s lifting rings are installed vertical to the hull. Is that correct? Can’t remember ever seeing them installed that way. But sure is a beautiful boat on the water

    Oops, took a look at pics of my Cobra and noticed for the first time that the two lifting rings on the starboard and port sides of the tail fin are turned vertical but not the forward lifting rink. Makes sense when you envision how the lifting of a Cobra would work. But still wonder why the Katz boat has the forward ring turned vertical.
