New Lund 2010 Guide Series

Has anybody checked one of these out yet? I test drove one a couple of weeks ago. They said it does 52mph. Well, I could only get 51.4mph according to the gps. This was with 2 of us and a full tank of gas though.

The salesman tells me at 50mph "let go of the handle" Are you friggen nuts!!! I said. Well I finally did it and holy cow, she just kept going straight down the lake. The hole shot was amazing also. Talk about setting you back in your seat.

Anyway, I'm getting one in February.

A standard package at my local marine dealer, which is: Boat, motor, trailer, Minn-kota trolling motor, Lowrance X-17 depth finder, is $30,000.

one more question, i see the boat has a ton of storage, is any of it water tight?, and i think a Yamaha is still an option if its rigged at local dealership? i might be wrong tho

Not standard, but the merc 175 opti is a pretty good motor. Easier on the gas than normal 2 strokes and VERY quiet. It even ideled down to 1.4mph on a calm lake, making it a great trolling motor.

No storage is water tight. But it is much better than my Yar-Craft!!! The design looked as though it would stand up to most conditions.

As far as the motors go. Lund is affiliated with Merc. They come with a merc and the dealer must account for those motors. You have to have the dealer take the merc off, and replace with the Yami. You would then have to sell your merc. Anything can be done for the right price. I'm not saying that it can't be done. I have a call into my dealer to see if you can buy the boat without the motor and then take to another dealer for the Yami.

true on the storage, i just thought maybe they would make 1 spot to keep something dry, i have a Alaskan and thats my only complaint, Looks like a nice boat good luck with it

Since Lund and Mercury are the same company you can be sure that you will be paying a premium to hang a Yammy on the back!

Lund sales have dropped considerably since they have gone Merc pre rig and they have terminated a bunch of dealers this past summer.

Lund is no longer the company that it was for many years and it remains to see if Brunswick will take a Bayliner marketing approach with them. Bayliner builds a boat to sell at a price point. And we all know in our hearts that the only way to make something cheaper is by making it cheaper.

Ya Lund lost a lot of credibility with me when they did this Mercury or "pay a price" B.S.! If this doesnt get taken care of in the next few years I and several thousand others will no longer be buying Lunds Im sure. I hate when companies pre rig and then charge a person to vary away from it. Right Tracker?

Looks like Alumacraft and Chrestliner sales will be going up soon. Maybe Ill buy some stock in them.

I've been boat shopping and the dealer tells me that I can order a Lund with Yamaha factory rigging.

all of this i did not know, pretty much sucks because IMO you can not beat a Yamaha Motor, and i was thinking of getting the NEW Lund Alaskan 20 DC but now maybe not, stick with what i have

Well if your dealer says he can make it happen, then stick with him.

Since this is a tiller boat does it come pre rigged? There is no throttle control or steering system on a tiller boat. Seems to me you could hang any motor off the back you wanted.

BTW Crestliner is also owned by Brunswick so they are affiliated with Mercury. As you say Alumacraft is all on there own and you can get any motor you want.

On page 39 of the 2007 book promoting the Lund Boat line, it states under the option section that Honda is an option on the motor. This is where the specs for the 2010 Pro Guide are listed so this may be an option. Personally, I am thinking Alumacraft and the 185 Tournament Sport. The 2007 has changed over the 2006 (slightly) and sure looks sweet to me. Have to hope my ship comes in!

You would be surprised how much rigging goes on those bigger tillers. You've got the hydraulic controls, oil line from tank, wires from the floor control, battery cables, etc.

Yup..looking thru their online catalog, every picture of their boats has a merc hanging off the back of it.

There is one way to show a company that you do not approve of them charging you a premium because you want what you want as opposed to wanting what they want you to take. "Vote with your feet." Buy another brand. Lund makes a great boat. So do some other boat manufacturers. I haven't ever justified to myself why Lund feels that they can charge so much for their boats. This is why I've never owned one.

Don't know what boats you've priced. Lund has the only 20ft aluminum tiller I have found. So their price @ $30k for a package is much cheaper than $40k for a Ranger, Triton, Yar-Craft, or Warrior.

There's also a tachometer and trim gauge which are motor brand dependent.

Fishhook is right in that Lund does show Honda as an optional motor for the 2010. It's listed under their Optional Equipment. If people are looking for a tiller yet do not want to pay the added cost of re-rigging a Lund with a Yamaha or some other motor, Alumacraft does make a Tournament Pro 185 Tiller which is basically 19' long and appears to be set up similar to the Lund 2010 (similar, but not exactly the same). I would agree that Alumacraft may see more sales come their way since they allow any motor to be put on their boats. It will be interesting to see in the years to come if there will be an adverse affect on the sales of Lund and Crestliner. Lund or Alumacraft, those tillers look like nice boats. I for one have those consoles that "get in the way". wink.gif

      Not sure how everyone else is drilling their holes with the k drill, but I have the 8" on a clam drill plate with the M18 fuel drill and don't have any problems with the drill overheating or the bit not cutting.  In 20" of ice, I clear the shavings 2 or 3 times during the cutting process and the drill cuts like a hot knife through butter.  Instructions on the k drill float are pretty clear that you should clear the shavings to prevent the drill from binding when cutting in thick ice.  Love my k drill!

      depends on what lake you go to i guess. i was up the weekend it was so bitter cold. very few lakes have plowed roads like winnie, red, mille lacs. there was probably 6 inches of snow on the ground and lake. the snow on the lake was drifted and had a bit of a crust to it. not sure what the warm strech did to it though. there are several bait shops you could call!!!!!!!!

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?  
    • Wanderer
      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.
