Boat Reviews By Owners

2005 -- 22' 0" BLUEWAVE

Model: 220 Vbay Lc



Construction: On the whole a well built boat, wide walk around gunwale, front and rear casting decks, nice level of finish. The main fault I can find is with the walk around gunwale. The cap protrudes outside of the hull sides aprox 4 inches, making it hard to deploy fenders, and the factory rubrail is a rinkydink 1/2 inch chrome strip.

Handling: With a sharp entry and a shallow draft(12"), the boat handles a chop pretty well, however it does pound a little more than some of the heavier boats out there. I have been caught out in steep 4-5 footers, and even though the boat did well, it's not something I would do intensionally. The scuppers drain fast and the overhanging gunwale makes for a reasonably dry ride

Engine Room: 150 Honda 4 stroke, on a 6" jackplate 3 blade (21) prop. Jumps up fast, and tops out about 43 mph. This thing just sips fuel, gota love it.

General Comments: I run this boat occasionally on a 15,000 acre lake in north Louisiana, for which she is a little much ( more swamp than lake, very shallow and lots of stumps). Where it shines is at the coast. With the jackplate and shallow draft, it does very well in the marsh and shallow bays, and even out to the rigs off shore on a good day.
