    Leaky Rub Rail.

    First I'd start on the outside. Remove almost all the screws on that side and look for rusty screws. Replace them all with one size larger and liberal 5200. If they are 16" apart add 2-3 @ 8" for good measure at the intrusion spot.

    Peoples opinions on Boston Whaler Nantucket 190 is it a good boat? Comparing With Parker 1801 still in the search?!?

    Cool. The op asked for opinions, here goes. While working my way up the last 40 years through trailer boats to twin diesels, of the fourteen boats I've owned three have been Whalers and four have been Grady's. The Grady 209 replaced our 17 Montauk...went through two of them. For ten years...

    Peoples opinions on Boston Whaler Nantucket 190 is it a good boat? Comparing With Parker 1801 still in the search?!?

    to bracket, or not to bracket?

    Transom savers are less effective because of the much longer reach and angles involved. We would rig rachet straps from upper motor to the stern cleats and second strap lower unit to trailer to lessen the bouncing effect. The bouncing is the hardest on the transom.... (Macgyver special)

    to bracket, or not to bracket?

    I'm with you. 23' is not small on baja roads. I'd look for a notched style designed for a single outboard only with a small splashwell or stout splash boards. Also a fully self draining cockpit with generous scuppers! Combined with a tried and true manufacturer ....Shopping is fun.

    Scupper area Mako 232

    Sometimes...depending on the size of the hull it's a tight fit to get the scupper drain outlets to drain out "above" the water line. On smaller hulls the flat drain plate fittings wind up too deep and they run out of scope in the drain hose to still drain above the water line. The style...

    Grady Seafarer Transom Mod

    Earlier you mentioned a earlier Seafarer. As fourstroke motors became more popular the hulls went from beams of 8' to 8.5 to help deal with the added weight of the fourstrokes. Hopefully yours is one of the wider hulls. Grady will know over the phone..

    Grady Seafarer Transom Mod

    Talk to the nice folks at Grady before cutting anything. That is a long lived model with lots of backyard experiments and they have seen it all. That hull is a great tweener...narrow enough to trailer, not too small but not really big enough to move/add heavy weight around the back end. With...

    If everything currently needs to flow to the rear transom maybe reroute either port/starboard. The drain can go out the side. The inflow line can loop around or along the gunnel where ever you might find room?

    Boat draining excessive amount of water?

    Also the rub rails can leak. Through the years if they've had a decent bump to the rubrail (trailer-dock-piling) it can cause the fastening screws to deform and leak. Then when passing through waves the water will rise up and can can creep through top and bottom fiberglass hull portions...

    I believe the 400hp is a result of Yamaha introducing their very new 4cly inline 200hp 4 stroke motors. The majority 258's hulls are either single 250 or twin 150's that both give strong performance. There are also many single 225 hp out there when those were/are an available option...This...
