When I was a kid I used to jump a small island with a 10' RIB w/ a 9.9 merc on the back. As long as the boat skips across the sand, you're good... if you hit a mound of sand wrong and the boat stops, then there might be issues.
Depends.........if its rocks sticking up out where you are beaching at then you are asking for it, seen it a few times.
I just want to apologize to oso, because I didn't want this to become a pissing contest. I usually speak for tmp and have been asked to before. I didn't realize that I said anything bad about them in this thread for me to be treated like I did. The owner and I are looking for answers. I will still keep you updated. Sorry again and thanks for all your help so far. Hopefully bill and hyperbaja will look into this and read some of this and find the problem. I will say that I am no longer affiliated with them and have been doing all I can to try to help all i can on my own. In the past week, I have called monstaaa and mr. horsepower and spoke to others to trying to get some questions answered and to help the owner get his boat back to where it needs to be. Like I said, I was not lying or fabricating nothing. Let Bill answer any questions from here on out. I will stay out of it. Hopefully they will show us pictures of the delaminated bottom, and where the water was coming in. Im off like a prom dress.
OMFG, the initials TMP AND the guy thats sold Jordy a Rolmex...this is too friggin good to make up
I'm glad I stayed out of this too.
D*mn, I have to put away my old TMP t-shirts again!
My boat also leaks at the rub rail. I never leave it in the water
but each time I launch off trailer I get a lot of water.
I had put sealant ( 5200 ) when I changed the rub rail , but
later found that when the screws were driven in I didn't
predrill and the screws seperated the joint.
It wasn't noticable as the rub rail covers the joint but
I also noticed an annoying vibration while ideling.
Don't know what happened to this boat but I was docked
last week in rough water for about 1 1/2 hours and
even with the bilge pump on I had about 7-8 inches of
water in the bilge.
Is this boat named yet? How about "Leaky Beaky"?
J/K! (insert dancing banana here)
Hopefully everything get's ironed out, and I'd like to know the results. I like to hear about the causes of any accident I hear about, so I can avoid the same problems myself.
It may be just the nature of the beast , I have a 42 with trips and It sits low in the stern it simply doesn't take much to start taking on water , wave action , rain , or once we just had too many people hanging out on the sun pad and swim platform and water can run in the vents can happen in an instant. I have read this post and noticed that there was a downpour and someone sad there could be wakes in that area it really doesn't take much to get one under
