Re: 2004 Nantucket 190 Vibration

<jimh>The behavior of the engine / flux capacitor)</jimh> does not sound like or feel like a cylinder misfire. A mechanic will take the boat on a sea trial next week.

Re: 2004 Nantucket Vibration

i keep my boat in MIlton Harbor (Westchester county) New York.

The vibration is not that bad.

I will probably take care of it after I haul the boat out at the end of October.

2004 Nantucket 190 Vibration

I have a 2004 190 Nantucket with the original Mercury OptiMax 135 engine. I believe that the propeller—size unknown—is as installed by Boston Whaler and is a stainless steel Mercury propeller. [The engine] has a bit of a vibration at certain engine speeds—nothing major but I notice it. The propeller...

Re: 1988 REVENGE 22 Engine Hours and Repower

How much are they asking?

Prior to buying my 2004 Nantucket 190, I nearly bought this one: http://whalerrevenge.com/

I am glad I [ultimately bought] an open, center console boat.

Re: VENTURA or OUTRAGE Self-bailing

My 2004 190 Nantucket (Outrage) has a self-bailing deck. Even when the bilge is 100% full of water, the deck continues to self-bail. If you are leaving it for extended periods, I'd recommend: —dual battery setup. Hard-wire bilge pump to one of the two batteries —change through-hulls and scuppers to ...

Re: How to sell Dauntless without engine

When I started hunting for used Whalers I was actually looking for something that needed to be re-powered as I did not want to inherit someone else's old Outboard. That proved difficult (and I ended up buying a 2004 190 Nantucket w/ a Merc 135 Optimax w/ 170 hrs). If the boat's in good shape, I'd ad...

Agree.

I cannot believe that Whaler (Brunswick) used this plastic stuff--it's hot garbage.

Re: Preparing Nantucket 190 for Saltwater

Quick update: Brought the boat home two weeks ago. The ride back from Geneva, NY to Rye, NY was interesting -- was pushing my Mazda CX9's limits (3500lbs capacity). Anyway, boat's in great shape. I put it in the water for a week to achieve a 'scum line'. Put a couple hours on it and it has performed...

Re: Preparing fresh water 2004 Nantucket 190 for salt water

Change the water pump impeller and associated wear parts in the water pump. Discard the weaker of the two batteries, and replace with an ultra-high-purity AGM lead-acid battery rated for 800-CCA. These will run about $330, and possibly less on sale or promotion. Check Batteries-Plus, or Costco. Rep...

Thanks all. Great insight.

I've got a quote from my local MarineMax (closest authorized BW dealer); first time bottom paint is $45 per foot. Ouch!

Re: 2001 Ventura 21

Adding a "get home" engine is expensive and reduces performance of most small boats. Among the more common reasons an engine stops running is because of fuel quality or supply problems and if the second engine is supplied from the same source it will be useless. Battery failure is another...
