Not particularly pretty, but I can assure you that the boat will last longer than us. That rotomold stuff is indestructible, I had an accident with a 17ft sailboat that was made of this stuff, needless to say the boat should be sunk right now, however it has a new rig and still sails around like new.

interesting how both of your only posts on THT are asking about known "hot/controversial" topics. First one talks of your horrible experience with an E-TEC on your 10th boat that you just bought. Second post is asking about Triumph boats, even though you just purchased a boat. Trying to stir the pot at all?
Both of my E-TECs have been great. A good friend of mine has the Triumph 19CC Bay and he loves it. No maintenance, really. I like the idea of the Roplene technology. It does ride nice in the sense that it is a quiet boat. A different sound than fiberglass.

Had a 2004 170 CC for 2 years.

If you want to use the 170 CC for bassing, get it without the bow rail or you will not be able to mount a trolling motor. It is an ok boat, smaller/narrower than most of the other 17' CC's out there, but runs ok with a 50-60 hp engine instead of the 90 to 115 that a wider, heavier boat like the Scout 175 would prefer. Several thousand cheaper, but a lot of that is due to the smaller engine.

I would not get one of the bigger Triumphs, at least the older 186 models I have seen in the used boat lots show that the interior deforms over time, and they tend to cost as much as a mid range fiberglass boat with equivalent power.

Yes and see how many like me were banned for not carrying the party line. Recent post by a fellow with pictures of his split across the bottom of his boat. Taken down after a few days. why To Make a better sprit of cooperation with the factory so they would fix it.
You can expect A screws to work loose. Must put RULE on every one. the only factory approved sealant that works for a while till it dries out. At keeping them in. Inner hull leaks into the foam drilling holes to let the water out.
unsupported left on straps, on pull out, it will deform/bend. Like a rubber ball it takes a beating well, but it also has little strength so the need for extra supports on trailer lift ect. Primarily made of LLDPE a soft class polyethylene with other added items. the
their yield stress point is low compared to other materials as is their sheer strength they "crack" they also have the problem of thru hull fittings leaking. Rule is the only answer to what is a constant plastic problem called Material creek modulus. It spreads under pressure so the fitting then Leaks The material is pouris so it will stain. getting it out is a problem the mole black spots will come. U will have fun trying to get rid of them my 2600 lb pressure washer, oxi clean , grease lighting, bleach nothing got them out. A high percent of the forums members are first boat owners so really have nothing to compare their experience to. They believe the statement all boats have problems true!!! but not all boats have the same problems over and over again triumphs tend to have them again not all but quite a lot

Rubber boats?

Yeah, takes a beating but fit and finish kinda sucks, from what I see. Too many screws holding those boats together that'll just back out, I'm sure. Kinda patch worked together. Floor screwed to boat, boat screwed to transom...blablabla.

A nice lil fresh water boat, I'm sure. For kicking back in the lake, inexpensively.

But then I'm a bit biased, I admit.

Obviously your boat is not screwed together, however the vast majority of prodiction glass boats are screwed togetherin every aspect from the hull-deck joint to consoles and almost every other aspect of the boat. The manufacturers have just gotten better at hiding this. But the fit and finish of the triumphs/ logics arent the nicest and will only get worse. But i do believe as a boat for work, or hard play they are almost unbeatable. No id dont own one, however I looked closely at them before buying my TV 17, the only reason I chose the TV was its better rough water ability.

I did a sea trail on a 2006 17CC about 2 weeks ago. After owning a Sea Hunt 202 this boat seemed tiny, with that said I thought it was a nice little boat. Does not shine, but it has a nice ride. The dealership had a 75hp E-Tec on it which pushed the boat with 2 of us on board and a full tank of gas (21 gallons) to 38mph. Fit and finish seemed pretty nice. I stomped around the deck for a while when the dealer was talking to another guy, seemed sound. The wiring under the console was neat and clean. Looks like a good boat for lake, river or inshore fishing or dragging a tube around, looks good for 2 up fishing, 3 might be tight. Priced right, 15K for boat, motor and trailer. All I would add is a bow mount trolling motor. I have no idea what their larger boats are like. The only draw back I can see is that its not self bailing. In my case thats not a big deal, I have owned 2 other small boats that were not self bailing either
