2004 Alumacraft TournamentPro 185CS problem

4 posts in this topic

Last year I purcased a Alumacraft TournamentPro 185CS. Half way through the season I noticed that the floor was sagging between the front livewell and the storage compartment. Has anyone else seen or had this problem? and what did you do to fix the problem?

Are you referring to the lid on the rod locker?

The lid on my rod locker does not sit flush, it is about a 1/4" lower than the compartments on either side. Mine isn't "sagging" at all, that is just the way it is.

If you are refering to the area in front of the rod locker lid, than you may have a problem I think that piece is marine plywood.

Either way, ask your dealer, or email Alumacraft - that is what your warranty is for, they have great customer service and will get back to you within a day or two.

The place where it is sagging is right next to the gunnel between the rear of the livewell and the starage compartment.

I talked to the dealer where I bought it and they said they could'nt do any thing for me. I was just wondering if anyone else has seen this problem.

I would contact Alumacraft...

Otherwise you can unscrew the pieces on the front deck and take a look at it to see what is going on. I know I took the front deck apart around the front livewell on mine before.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
