Help with a Warrior V177 Falcon!

3 posts in this topic

I have a problem that's been hard to solve, thought I would ask here. I have a 17.5' Warrior Falcon (SC), mated to a Yamaha F100 four-stroke. This mating has never performed like I though it should. Gets on plane, but has very little trim adjustment before "porpoising". I know my prop is properly matched to this boat. Yamaha says the correct prop should be within 500 rpm of the upper range of rpm at full speed. Max rpm (in the owners manual) is 6000, and my boat runs approx. 5850. If i have a full load of gas (36 gallons), and an extra guy with me, I HAVE to fill the front livewell, or the boat porpoises in the fully trimmed-down position. What's up? Should I consider using a different mounting hole? If so, should I raise the mounting of the motor, or lower it? I want to hang a kicker on the back of this rig, yet I'm afraid the extra weight will make the boat a pig! Any advice would be appreciated!

    • Well yeah but can you name a vehicle built for off road including any domestic pickup truck that doesn't have issues with rust. Fenders, rockers, frames etc. If you play in the mud and salt you need to maintain them. UTVs are no different. Ask yourself why Polaris would put the air filter canister intake in the rear wheel well so it is sucking in the air from the dustiest area they could possibly draw it from resulting in a 4k bill when the motor grenades.    Jeeps are fun, used ones can be had at a reasonable price but by their nature you need to be careful when you purchase because if the previous owner drove them the way they were marketed then they may have some issues.   But the aftermarket has an amazing amount of mods,upgrades and accessories to make your Jeep into anything you want and because the generally go 10 years between major design changes there are a large number of parts available if you need them.     
    • Anyfish it's still points and way better than a zero for points! Congrats on the fine eating bird.
    • Pick up a Jake morning.  Not going help the team score, if at all.  But it sure will taste good.
    • It's been very quiet in the woods the past few days.  Some gobbling this morning.
    • Nice! Way to go! Hope I'm able to get out and enjoy hunting when I'm that age.
    • Well, one of the advantages to owning a Jeep is there are always plenty of Jeep owners out there looking for parts, so if you get ahold of one with a bad frame, you could always part it out and sell the parts to another Jeep owner who believes they have a good frame....      
    • I am saying if you go mudding or off-roading you will plug any of the drain holes they could put in there anyway. Not much different from the weep holes they put in the rear fenderwells and rockers of trucks.  I suppose it may have benefit to those who stay on pavement.
    • They put holes in the sides of the frame, so salt and mud could get in, but no holes in the bottom so they could drain, so not sure if that was planned, or just p*ss poor engineering.  They probably didn't really care as long as they outlasted the warranty period.        
    • Drain holes just end up getting plugged with mud and debris anyway.
