hurricane recall notice

sullmatesullmate New Fairfield, Ct.Member Posts: 19
Just got a letter from Godfrey Marine about a recall on all Hurricane 187 SDS and 188 SDS outboard boats built between September 2015 and November 3, 2017. Seems these boats do not comply with US  Coast Guard flotation requirements ! This makes me wonder about quality control at Godfrey. I already had to bring my 188 back for 5 gel coat blisters ( a quarter size) on the lower transon after 1 season of use. 
Please comment !

    I was just notified of the recall by the previous owner, I’m the second owner.  However, when I tried emailing Godfrey Marine at the recommended email the email bounced back because lack of address.  [email protected] does not work..

    Can you give me more info on the recall? I purchased our boat used, so I am thinking I may not get notified.  We have a 2011 187 OB. Thanks

    I too received a letter from Godfrey on my 2016 Hurricane. I called my local dealer down here in the Florida Keys. They are washing their hands of the recall and gave me a number for someone who is handling the recall as a 3rd party for Godfrey. I have emailed and spoken to him but nothing as far as a time frame here. I live on the water and want to boat the rest of the summer but it sounds like this is serious and you should not be driving this boat at all. I just sent another email tonight telling them that this is unacceptable and I need a time frame.
