Re: Karavan boat trailers

I am purchasing my hubs directly from Karavan. I was referred to Eastern Trailer on their [Karavan’s] website who [i.e., Eastern Trailer] referred me back to Karavan. The parts associate was very apologetic, but he said the hubs are manufactured in Hungary. Anyone who has one of these trailers would...

Re: Karavan boat trailers

An additional note: the nut that holds the hub to the spindle is a one -time-use only. It must be replaced each time it is removed and torqued to exactly 207-ft-lbs. I had to use a 3/4-inch-drive ratchet with a 4-foot' piece of pipe for leverage to remove the nut. Not something you want to do on the...

Karavan boat trailers

I want to share my experience I had with Karavan boat trailers when trying to order some replacement bearings for my hubs: You can't. Apparently some Karavan trailers are specifically made for Boston Whaler and use a Knott-brand hub. These hubs are not serviceable.You cannot remove the bearing to re...

Re: DIY ideas for forward facing seats on 210 Outrage

The seat back I installed on my 210 Montauk is mounted with 8 #12 x 2" self tapping screws on each bracket.Trust me,it's not going anywhere. Behind the vertical wall behind the fish box there is some type of structure beneath the gel coat.

Re: DIY ideas for forward facing seats on 210 Outrage

Birdsall Marine has some nice back rests that will work.I put one on my 2013 210 Montauk and it works well.

They are expensive but very good quality. When I get to the boat I will post some images of the one I have.

Re: Water pump impeller price and quality

I was the mechanic. [The cause of the engine blowing after the impeller was changed] was totally unrelated to the cooling system.

Re: Water pump impeller price and quality

I had an Evinrude 80-HP engine impeller last 17 years. It was replaced in a Fall, and the engine blew up after about three hours running in the next Spring.

210 Montauk Sun Lounge

For owners of a 210 MONTAUK with the sun lounge option: does the sun lounge option prevent you from walking around the forward cooler seat without walking on top of the sun lounge?

To have an image [of a sun lounge on a 210 MONTAUK] would be great.

I want others' opinions.

Re: 2018 170 Montauk Prices

When I was shopping for my 2013 210 Montauk, the owner of my local dealer treated me like I really wasn't serious about purchasing a boat. He wouldn't even give me a realistic or written quote on the boat. I drove to another Boston Whaler dealer 90 miles away who provided me with a written quote for...

Re: 2014 240 DAUNTLESS Cushions Have Pink Spots

I purchased a new 2002 Boston Whaler 180 Dauntless. Its bow cushions also developed pink spots even before anyone sat on them. At that time my dealer said they would replace the cushions under warranty because of a known defect: a reaction between the foam and the vinyl. After a month the pink spots...

Re: WTB: Rails for 13 foot whaler (side or wrap around)

I have a set of side rails that were removed from a 1965 16 foot Nauset.The chrome fittings are worn and the brass is showing through but the rails are in good shape.I would take one hundred dollars for the set.I don't know how well they would fit a 13 footer.

Re: Retail Prices for New Boston Whaler Boats

Shop around. In 2013 when I purchased my Boston Whaler Montauk 210, I shopped three different dealers in a 200-mile radius and saved $10,000 between the highest-priced dealer and the lowest on a $53,000-boat--a big difference in price. It was easy to travel a hundred miles to save $10,000.
