Gel Coat Blisters Hurricane 188SS

sullmatesullmate New Fairfield, Ct.Member Posts: 19
This past May,I bought a new 2017 188 SS with 150 yammie.  Upon taking the boat out of the lake, I noticed 6 gel coat blisters (full of water) at the lower transom of the boat. I called the dealer and he will fix under warranty, in the spring. Anybody else have this problem? Poor quality control ??. K never had this problem with my searay which I owned for 23 years.
Also, cant buy a bimini top anti sway bar. Discontinued by hurricane. STUPID !!!!!

    longlake, what is your top speed and what size prop are you using. I guess it is stainless steel? Thanks

    49 mph.  It's stainless steel but I'm not sure of the pitch.  Dealer installed.

    I had several blisters on the hull of my 2010 SS188. Hurricane fixed it by shipping boat back to factory. Traded it in after that so don't know how it held up.
