Lack of STEERING CONTROL
I own a 2014 Fun-Deck 236, with a 150 Yamaha. Early 2014 I communicated with Ms Terri Gipson regarding a severe problem with SLOW SPEED MANEUVERS with my boat.
The problem is although I hold a USCG 100 Ton Master Rating, and have been on the water some 60 years, this boat DOES NOT RESPOND WELL in close quarter maneuvers IE: DOCKING.
I have made 3 Prop changes, checked & re-checked the engine alignment & mounting. Verified lack of damage to the Hull, & still I am NOT able to perform simple maneuvers with this boat.
Yesterday I met a fellow Captain who owns a 2012, 21' Fun-Deck with only 10 hours on it.
We discussed our similar boats & discovered that we have the same complaint. Capt. Glenn stated that he will not use his boat any longer therefore the Low usage.
I feel vindicated as my position has been confirmed, and Both of us DEMAND some attention to our mutual problem.
