    Geez...I have one of these boats, and to be honest I just never knew it was a "Sidewinder",
    because,
    all the emblem on the side says is "COBRA by CALIFORNIA FIBERGLASS"
    so,
    I always thought it was from Ca ???? and a "Cobra" ??
    Now,
    from research here and over at sidewinder.com...
    I have been able to determine that mine is a 1970 "lopro" 16ft Sidewinder probably built in B.C. Canada.

    Always thought it was kind of a unique hull, never seen another like it around these parts....and it goes like stink with a old 1250 Merc on it.

    Detained Bikes and Boats!! :P

    Sidewinder Forums?????

    Can anyone enlighten me as to where to find any forums on the Sidewinder boats? It seems there is a lot of reference to sidewinder-boats.com but that forum seems to no longer allow new people to register so of course I can't ask any questions or even view the pics posted there......

    Thanks ~ Rick
