Ever heard of Triumph Boats out of NC?

2 posts in this topic

After 3 years with no boat, my wife and I are finished kicking out kids. I've been given the green light to rejoin the ranks of "MEN" and get a boat this summer. One stipulation includes Fish/Ski capabilities. I can go with that due to some fishable Fish/Ski models out there. In my searching I ran across a Triumph. After checking out the HSOforum I'm intrigued. Anyone have any experience in them. How's the ride, are they as indestructible as claimed, and what's the weight of the boat compared to glass. I am mainly a walleye guy so need something that can handle some rolling seas. Thanks for any help.

I can tell you what I know...I was looking for a center console boat and ran into Logic boats about 10 years ago, they turned into triumph boats at some point in the last few years. I read a lot about them, talked to a few people online, even looked at a used one down in the cities a couple years ago. It was OK, but only a 17 and smaller than I wanted. As I understand, they are roto-molded construction, as opposed to fiberglass. They don't hold a shine like gel coat. They sometimes have issues with the hull slightly warping out of water (saw a few pics on the net of this), thier lines aren't as true in general. Kind of like a coleman canoe. Tough, but not as refined as some. They are said to ride well, I think the weight is slightly less then fiberglass. Very tough boats as well. Many guys are satisfied with them, the price point is right, and if I'd have found the right one I'd have bought it after everything I'd seen written on them. I eneded up finding a 20'BayChamp glass CC 2 years ago, so I'm set now.

    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?
