Before buying a new boat,,,

1 post in this topic

My wife's co-worker just plunked down 26K for a new boat. It came with a few round rub marks on the side, down to the hull in a couple spots. No big deal, they are getting paint and he has to bring it in to a paint shop to get it touched up. He took the boat out and saw that the graph worked great until higher speeds, and went blank. Upon looking he saw that the trans was located inline with a rib. He thought maybe lower it, but was bottomed out in the slots already. He is really upset about having to bore two more holes in his new boat. I would have advised him to have a board installed on the transom so that there will always only be two holes back there. Seems like when you get a new graph the mount is not always the same, and more holes have to go in.
My advice is, that anyone looking into a different or new boat, to ask for a second opinion. I am sure that someone here wouldn't mind looking at a boat and giving some opinion before you write a check. I know that my eyes get pretty big when i am shopping, and not always focused on the little but important details. Good Luck!
