We went to Lake Powell in order to get to the un-flooded side canyons (the dam tragically drowned some of the most incredible canyons in the country, so it is difficult for us to take any pleasure in the lake, although it does offer views of beautiful canyon walls and some narrows). It was a challenge to get into those side canyons, given log-jams where the lake meets the side canyons and thick, quicksand-like muck, but after about an hour's slog, we managed to get into several of them, which made the trip worthwhile. While the staff at Bullfrog were terrific (e.g., Josh, who transports people's stuff, was extra helpful), the timeliness of getting our boat and the condition of the boat (47-ft) were not. Here is a list of the problems that my son compiled:
Waited for 2 hrs for briefing before departure, and then after 45 minutes on the water, we sat dead in water for almost another 2 hours because LH motor died due to electrical issues. The mechanic that finally arrived was very helpful, efficient and got the job done quickly once he got there.
Throttles were not synchronized, making it hard to keep the boat pointed straight.
LH motor won’t go past 4K and RH revs fine, again making it hard to keep the boat pointed straight.
Tachometers intermittently go out of whack, and are inaccurate.
Generator bogs down frequently and dies randomly with only small electrical loads on, then quit starting altogether on final day.
Whole boat vibrates at times when outboards are idling. Very odd.
Microwave worked only intermittently. (Perhaps a poor electrical connection)
Light in rear bedroom so dim as to be useless.
Multiple outlets dead.
Gps/Depth gauge work intermittently but don’t seem to be at all accurate.
Cracked and sheared welds on upper deck railing in multiple places-should be re-welded.
Circuit breaker board poorly labeled, very hard to operate electrical systems.
