Just sold my pontoon found this boat and really need to know what to check? My last fiberglass boat was 1978 Ozark! This boat looks nice in pictures...... Can the decks get weak like older ski boats and do they load just like a toon?
Welcome to the Owners Forum, seago!
One difference with a deck boat over a pontoon is that the deck is made of fiberglass, not marine plywood. So, no, the deck doesn't get weak.
You are also at max capacity (200 hp) on the outboard so this boat should fly! You will find that deck boats will also perform totally different, especially on how quickly they get on plane.
You may want to seriously consider contacting a marine surveyor in your area and get a survey done on the boat. It will give you peace of mind on your purchase. He'll find potentially hidden issues that can cost you.2012 SD237 I/O Mercruiser 5.0L MPI ECT/ Bravo 32012 Load Rite Elite Tandem axle trailer
thanks looked at boat today pictures made boat look good! the white seat backs had a sun damage found few gelcoat cracks and battery was dead plus boat was used in salt water just small stuff but I like to keep my boats clean! So still looking for toon or deck boat! But he did drop price by $5k
Let us know what you find or what you end up with, hopefully it's a Hurricane! If you read on any of our posts, most Hurricane owners love their boats (that would also be me!).2012 SD237 I/O Mercruiser 5.0L MPI ECT/ Bravo 32012 Load Rite Elite Tandem axle trailer
