That Minnesota guy Of all the fiberglass boats I've owned the Lunds have been the heaviest. But that weight also contributes to the ride, which some like & some don't. I've never had a problem with the Lunds I've owned.

Not quite accurate... Get into their specs compare: A 621 hull weighs 2400, a 219 weighs 3,000...

Compare tin cans for the same... A Starcraft Fishmaster 210 weighs 1598, a Lund 2075 Pro-V weighs 2150. Both are 20' 10" boats


You should be comparing a F-350 & Chevy 3500, not mustang.


Happy Fishing!!

I know at least 10 owners of the 219 and 202 and none have had an issue nor have I so its just hype and hearsay unless you own one and had an experience hearsay is worthless that's why its not admissible in court because its just that hearsay.

While I agree with you, them guys being without boats for awhile tells me it wasn't hearsay...


And jeez!!! did dude wack a dock or something? lol

I will say this. Lund is obviously going to say they haven't had any issues, I think all manufactures would take that stance.


BUT! Come to a tournament and start to get to know people. You hear and see everything. Now I haven't seen anything first hand and haven't heard anything in about a year on Lund Transom issues, but you'd be surprised at number of transom issues you hear about that no one talks about. I personally have been a Lund guy all my life but that was until I learned a few things and talk to people. I personally would never buy one myself. This isn't just because of the so called transom issues.


Of the list of boats the OP put up which I believe was the Lund, Ranger and ZV21 from Nitro, the only one I would buy would be the Nitro. It isn't the detailed boat that everyone wants, but ya don't hear about to many issue with them or really any at all. And if they are, they're self induced which I only know of one lol.


A reason I run Skeeter..... ZERO problems. I would own a Warrior if money was no object.

There aren’t a ton of 202/219s on the water around here, and of those, I know of at least 4 that have had bad transoms/glass work and had to go back to the factory to be rebuilt/repaired. Two of those boats ended up having the same problem again after being repaired. These boats are not being abused either, just normal use. Take that for what you will…

All feedback is good feedback. I was also concerned when I heard about this potential issue. I wrote Lund they told me what to check and it was fine, had something to so with a cross member however they assured me it was a very isolated situation and I have not heard of any other issues, I heard the same thing somewhere about 4 boats, many issues. Needless to say anything can be an issue in manufacturing. I saw a boat with the whole sidewall caved it.

Where did you hear about these 4 boats, I was confused given you said not very many on the water around you? Was it online comments somewhere also, may be the same ones.
