Boat Reviews By Owners
1985 -- 20' 10" RINKER
Cockpit: You need to stand for the best view. Great for the usual "booze cruise" and tubing.
Cabin: The cabin is spartan but comfortable. The kids have no problem falling asleep after a day of fun in the sun.
Construction: The hull is solid and well constructed. From the outside you would never know the boat was 18 years old. The vinyl is faded and some areas are discolored but who cares?
Handling: Had some motor problems since the boat had sat inside for six years and was never run. Got the old gas out and ran with NOS octane boost and it starts right up and will top out at 37 MPH on a calm sea. It is kept in monroe michigan and usually makes a good cruise up the maumee river in toledo.
Engine Room: Merc 470 with a 4 bbl carb. Fussy rochester carb though. Rebuild may be in order.
General Comments: I bought the boat from a buddy who had left it stored inside for 6 years for $1200 and it came with a trailer, depth finder, lifejackets and ship 2 shore. 2 foot waves or less is best. Great first boat.
