Hey guys, Great forum you have here.

New to the Trophy range, just bought a 1996 2002WA with a 120 Force hanging on the back.

Any specific problem areas (except the engine :p ) that I should be aware of?

A few items to look out for:

1. fish box filling with rain water: Taco hatch seal tape does a nice job of keeping most of the water out. I also recommend adding a lift aid to the top of the box to keep it open. I used the stainless spring type.

2. Rail fitting corrode unless they are stainless or have been replaced.

3. My boat came with only 1 battery: highly recommend adding a second for added security!

4. Replace the stern light with a fold down type mounted on the windshield...the 4' long light pole made a good "hand hold" in rough seas and does not last too long.

5. I had some back pads made for the rear jump seats to provide better back comfort for passengers.

6. I also added 2 rear grab rails near the rear seats for added safety.

Over all its a great boat and provides much enjoyment with minimal troubles!

Thanks FrankC, sound like I have covered most of the faults including the double battery and the light, but will definitely get some taco hatch seal tape for the fish bins.

I had to replace the front anchor hatch, and the live well hatch, and noticed the wood under the live well step has a bit of rot happening. is the wood underneath only underneath the step in that area, or do I need to take the rot in that area seriously and get into cutting and repairing the rot.

Great idea on the rear seats, will have to look into that.

I have a problem with the security of the double seat/storage box on my 1994 Trophy 2002 WA. The double seat which is just behind the two front seats at the helm seems to be poorly secured to the floor.(Some of the screws seem to be loose and don't 'bite' into anything). I am worried that the entire seat could tip backwards when someone is sitting on it. Any suggestions as to how to tackle this problem? Not knowing what lies beneath makes me a bit worried about using longer or thicker screws.

Can you send a picture of the location of the seats? My 1996 2002WA does not have the double seats that you are talking about, so they may be add on's.

Frank, can you email me a picture of your lift aid to keep the fish box open. Thank you,

9. E-Z-Steer bar to link main motor with kicker.
10. Raccor Dual oulet fuel filter.
11. OMC Auxillary Oiler plumbed from the raccor to any kicker. And mounted to the backside of the jump seat hatch door.
12. Electric Downriggers
13. A 3 rod rod holder mounted to the outside of the Cuddy for Boat hook, landing net, and butt harpoon.
14. Johnny Ray mounts for Fish Finders & GPS Chart Plotters.
15. Bennett Trim Tabs.

See my pics in the photo albums on page 5 or 6 for specifics. 1995 2002 W/A with 150 & 8 HP Mercs, Cannon Mini mag downriggers on cannon pedestals and swivel bases, and Lowrance electronics (X-107 CDF, GlobalMap 6500c, LMF-400 Multi-function gauge with Fluid level and fuel flow sensor, will be adding the Bennett Trim Tab Position sensor soon all networked together with a LowranceNet Blue Connector Backbone)

What is underneath is your fuel tank, but I do not know how close the top of the floor is to the underside of the deck.

If it was mine, I would take the seat off and clean both mating surfaces with acetone. use a caliper that is able to go through the fiberglass to see how much clearance you have in the void.

http://cgi.ebay.com/6-Inch-Electronic-Digital-Caliper-NEW-BATTERY-INCLUDED_W0QQitemZ200308868162QQcmdZViewItem

If you still are unsure, reinstall the seat (after coating the mating surfaces with 3M 5200) with thicker screws. The 5200 alone would probably hold the seat in place.

With the Hatch but you should be able to buy the smoked plexiglass, heat it slow with a heat gun to create the lip. Or any plastic shop should be able to do it.

Hello All,

New owner of a Trophy. Having a new alum gas tank installed in a couple of weeks. While they have the deck cut open I want to completely seal over any inlets/outlets for the livebait well. I've heard over and over that they leak and even if they didn't they don't keep the fish alive because of the shape (square vs. not being round). Has anyone else done this? I pulled a photo of the livewell and all the hoses off of www.trophyparts.com . I know there is an intake hole on the side of the boat for it -- what's the best way to seal this? What else needs to be sealed --- anything??

Thanks!

Couple of points of advise. First & foremost is Jeff Bisson's rebuilt of his 2002 Trophy W/A. It is an Education in 2002's and a must read for you. Second piece of advise is to get rid of those #$%^&*( POS Perko scuppers and Install some direction replacement (same size and screw hole positions) RABUDS!!!!!!

I hated my Rabuds. The constant clacking was annoying plus the clear plastic covers crazed and cracked over the winter, replaced them twice then went back to the regular flappy perkos.

I have a 1992 2002 WA and am wondering what the bottom of the hull layout is? Does anyone know?! Which way the stringers run, layout of the wood ect... and does a 1992 have wood or fiberglass stringers? And what is the transom made out of? Thanks

I should just buckle down and get an owners manual. I have heard that bayliner put fiberglass stringers in, in like 1990 and greenwood XL transom wood. Took some pretty cool pictures today from inside the boat that gave me a great view and idea of the layout. Not sure if what I was seeing was the stringers or not, but they definately had the fiberglass orange glow.

Does anyone have the dimensions of the fuel tank on the 2002WA (1994)? I'll be replacing mine and I want to know where to cut the deck.

Thanks,

Russ

I would PM a BOC'er here that took his completely apart, and that would be Jeff Bisson. If you review his Rebuild thread, he posted excellent pics with the Upper Deck completely off of the hull.
