We bought a Cobalt 220 with an open bow. The kids love it, I love it, and so does John. I've learned how to back a trailer up now so I'm not quite as nervous as I was when we first got it.
When we are in the dock area, going wakeless, and approaching the buoys, Maddens favorite thing to do is say "wait for it, wait for it, wait for it..." That is always sure to get a smile on my face. Usually he falls asleep during boat rides, but I bet it is perfectly relaxing for him.
I'm excited to share the boat with other families that we love, and also to be able to spend that close time with my family. I'm so glad that John did this for me and I think that we will have lots of fun memories aboard!
