Boat Reviews By Owners
1985 -- 22' 2" GRADY WHITE
Cockpit: Lots of space and storage, open transom dangerous offshore,good fishing boat for bays and coastal.
Cabin: No cabin
Construction: Built poorly, Open tansom, impossible to get to bilge pump when in the water without removing about fifty screws, Plywood laminated transom rotted, sides are not thru bolted or glassed to the gunwale, stres cracks galore, some blisters,bad ride on a 2 foot chop,electrical panel had to be replaced, fuel tank rests on bottom of bilge and had to be replaced, un exposed fiberglass surfaces are poorly finished, lots of exposed plywood with out fiberglass,
Handling: good ride on calm seas.
Engine Room: Yamaha 200 ran and performed great no problems, motor was 1995, a good 30 mph cruise and 40 mph top, Boat had a hard top which made it slow.
General Comments: I hope grady has improved on newer models, old gradys are showing their age and are having similar problems.
