What's with my Lund??

11 posts in this topic

I just bought A Lund SSV 14 and have been on the water at least 3 times a week. As of the last week I have had the aluminum flexing in the bow end near the bottom on the left side. If I go over any wakes or on water with minor white caps the boat makes this terribly loud sound as the aluminum flexes in and out. Would this be a warranty issue? does any one else have this problem?? I sure am dissapointed in the quality of this boat. What do you guys think?? I do have an appointment with the dealer next week.

There may be a couple possibilities. It may be possible that the aluminum was damaged,(Did you buy it new or used)? and improperly repaired. Sometimes repairs will stretch the metal so that it creates the "oil can" effect. (Popping in and out). The other possibility is that one of the structural ribs is not attached the way it needs to be. See what the dealer has to say and if they're not sure what to do with it, we'd be happy to look at if for you and see what we can do with it.

Thats the first thing that came to my mind also. The aluminum got stretched one way or an other.

Is stretching of the aluminum covered under Boat warranty? I bought the boat brand new a couple of months ago and figured that Lund is the idustry leader in strength and quality boats, I may have been wrong!

It better be covered. If your dealer dont give you justice call Lund and tell them about it. Any good dealer would take care of you!

Great thanks for the advice guys, I will get a new boat either from the dealer or Lund itself. It really peeves me when I spend top dollar and get junk. They say in the catalogue that they drop these boats from float planes in the North from heights of 100-200 feet to ice cold water yet mine could not take a few trips on lake with mild white caps. How is Lund to deal with on warranty? They say they have the best? Anybody deal with them??

We've never had any negative experiences dealing with Lund or any of their dealers, so I am optimistic that they will take care of you. My guess is that it's probably not an issue of quality, (because Lund does have very high quality control standards) rather, it was probably just a fluke random defect, which is difficult to avoid in any manufacturing process. Nonetheless, it needs to be addressed and I'm sure that you won't have any problems. Good luck.

I had my hull dent a couple of weeks ago. Lund has been very good they have it now and told me it would be 3 to 4 weeks. I have a 1700 fisherman. I noticed it sounded like a barrel flexing when I hit a waves long before it happened. There is not ribbing in thehull on mine, they said they would reinforce it with ribs.

I can't see the flexing when Im at the back of the boat but can hear it ( sounds terrible) but the person sitting near the bow can see it flexing and usually place their feet there to stop it.

    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.
