    I am considering buying this boat. I believe it is the first Triumph after the Logic. Any "buyer beware" info would be appreciated. It has a 140 Suzuki and no T top.

    See if you can remove the two covers in the back well to check for water. Never gonna be fully dry but not a big deal. There was a gasket originally and most guys just sealed em up.
    This was an original problem. You will also probably find a lot of loose screws and stuff but they can be fixed. Goes without saying to run the boat to check the motor.

    I have a 210 and love it. Little things only but the hull is bulletproof and needs just a good washdown after a day on the ocean. Same for the inside. If there are a lot of little black specs those come off with a powerwasher. Other benefit is it's lighter than a glass boat so easier to tow. We towed ours with a V-6 Astro van when we first got it. Launced at O-side, Monterey Bay and up and down the coast no problem.
    Like I said pretty much indestructable and unsinkable. We have the Suzuki 140 also and get up to about 30 with no problem. Probably go faster but $4 goes fast.

    We also have had in in Mid-Channel off Ventura going to the Islands in semi-shitty weather and it always felt safe. We do have the t-top to hang the 47 poles you need. Might be a thought for later as it is a bolt-on option. We bought ours from AA in Oside. Pretty good guys.

    The transom wells are no big deal. Just cut in a circular deck plate so when water gets in which it will, you can just shop vac it out. Good solid boats that ride really dry and a very good value. Imo.

    I've read a bit about hull deformation when sitting on trailers on early 21' models. Search on "thehulltruth.com" and sort out the bs. I really like Jerods's 15'er.

    Like everyone said the little shit is no big deal. If it's a good deal buy it you won't be sorry. First time you clean it especially. Check out the website too pretty good site.

    My son has the same setup.

    Excellent boat and good ride.

    Last weekend we came back uphill on a 30 mile run. Winds to at least 30, 3' wind chop all the way, and I slept undisturbed in the back. Didn't wake up until we were back in the harbor.

    It get around 3.5mpg. And my son is not one to run slow.
