Boat Reviews By Owners

2006 -- 18' 6" SEA BASS

Model: 190CC

Cockpit: Good gage cluster, with compass, room for electronics, dry box on dash, console includes 6 rod holders, 2 cup holders, and cooler under front cushion.

Cabin: N/A

Construction: Seems well constructed for an economy boat. Stainless steel parts are not the grade I would use on a salt water boat. Many screws were shot in crooked or over torqued when assembled. several were missing, no pilot hole ever drilled. Hull, under deck was littered with debris which got caught in the bildge pump causing it to blow fuses several times. The livewells pumped only a trickle, then clogged completely. Found several pieces of marine calking was pluging the lines.

Handling: At first it was hard to steer. Especially left turn. No adjustment helped. found that the drag link bushings were crimped by its manufacturer way to tight. Marina gave me a good one and its fine now. This is single cable maunual steering. Handles 2 to 3 foot seas well, has a carolina style bow which gives a nice dry ride.

Engine Room: It came with a Mercury 115 4 Stroke. This is an excellent engine. Quiet, strong and good fuel economy.

General Comments: I bought this boat new, Other than a few little glitches it has been a good boat, The 115 Merc. tops out at 5850 rpm and about 45 mph trimmed. quick to get on plane and is very stable and responsive at wide open throttle. The whole rig, boat motor and trailer weigh less that 3000 pounds and can be pulled anywhere with a small V8 or a large V6. My Chevy S-10 with a 4.3 V6 and auto trans pulled it with no problem.
