I agree with the above concerns and those cracks look like they open when there's stress on the transom.
I think you might want to check the others out that are listed.

Congrats on getting her wet.  Nice detailed report too.  I find it nteresting that my last numbers with a 150 on a 21' are basically identical to yours.  Time to enjoy the fruits of your labor.   :clap:

That’s a winner. Nothing better than a day on the water with no mechanical/electrical gremlins.

Arima Life / Break-in and testing today
« Last post by davidsea on Today at 10:15:39 PM »
  I spent the day on Lake Washington today doing the break-in and testing on the SeaRanger 19 hardtop (1996) that I've been working on since January.  A few small glitches, but nearly everything worked well.  I have replaced everything electrical except the nav lights, everything in the fuel system except the tank, added hydraulic steering and new controls, and bought a new Honda 115 at the boat show.  Given the weight of the boat - it has the full hardtop plus the all-glass factory aft bulkhead - I was really happy with the performance.  I had about 30 gallons of fuel aboard, all the normal safety gear, porta-potty, refrigerator, and 2) Group27 batteries aft.
Prop was nothing special - Honda aluminum 3-blade, 14.8 X 17 with minimal cup.  These are the GPS numbers:  4000 rpm - 25.5 mph, 4500 - 30.1, 5000 - 34.0, 5800 - 38.7,  and finally (WAY overtrimmed and letting the prop slip a bit)  6000 - 40.3   Not bad for 115HP.
  I also found - by luck - a good location for a glue-in transducer puck.  Mounted it about 4" outboard and slightly forward of the factory bilge pump mounting pad, and it was reading consistently below 200 ft. at 30+ mph.  Good day on the water!

"Say I was up in Tacoma for a cheer comp a couple weekends ago and took some walking around pics you might appreciate."

Sooooo, I am probably too old to complain about no pics from the cheer competition, huh?  :whistle: :whistle:

My 2006 Yamaha T8 finally took a dump after years of hard abuse. Hands down, unequivocally, NO F'N QUESTIONS ASKED I am going to get the Suzuki fuel injected 9.9. My buddy has had one for 3 seasons now and LOVES it.

I was there that day and the story I heard was backwards from what the article said. It said it took a wave and sunk as it hit the rocks. I heard it hit the rocks in the middle of the cut in between Washington and Tattosh Island, and sunk. either way, it was a nasty day, especially where they were at. Life vests should have been donned. What a sad situation.

The water was glass and fishing was tough but we did well.
