Huge Boat Problem, HELP!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Gemstone

I have a 2005 Monark King 195 with a Yamaha 150. When running close to full thottle in medium wave the boat rolls to the left. If I don't let of the throttle it keeps rolling to the point where the gunnell is close to the water level. This boat was never damaged. Any ideas?

Too much weight on one side of the boat or there is a defect in the hull thats grabbing the water and pulling the boat down.

Is it possible that the motor isn't trimmed right. I just put a new prop on my boat, and it took some adjusting of the trim angle to get it to run right. It wasn't quite as drastic as you are talking about, but it did lean to the left a bit and was throwing out a nasty looking wake, very much off-center and just not running quite right.

Just a thought.

Check your motor installation, measure it to be sure it is centered on transom.

Otherwise a hull problem, quite possible on the rear 1/2 section of the boat

It would be safe to assume that you did something to the lower unit, the hull or to the rigging of your boat. If you just changed props or adjusted your steering, start there to find problem. Otherwise you may have done something to the hull itself. As Valv suggests, it would probably be in the after section of the hull and likely along the keel line. Relax....this is a solvable problem. grin.gif

Do you have a dole fin on the the motor? I have a new Merc and the manual says that the fin can cause the boat to roll.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
