        I just inherited a 1977 Blue Water 40'. Nice, but needs a fair amount of work. Blue Water was not much help being so old and the several incarnations of the company. Any idea for documentation, parts, etc? Thanks!Matt

          Hi. I live in Vacaville and have a 2000 Bluewater Mirage. Purchased it last summer. I need to have the u-joints and gimble bearing serviced, and probably the impeller replaced. Also when I start the boat there is a ring ring ring noise coming from near the starter. What't the name of your shop in Suisun. Thanks

                  I just bought a 18 foot 1990 Bluewater. Not sure of the model, but it is an open bow with a 5.7 merc I/O. Eagle maybe. The hull is pristene, hardly a scratch, even on the keel. The interior has been converted to more of a fishing boat with pedestal seats and the wiring of accessories leaves something to be desired, but it runs strong and appears to have been well maintained.

                    We just bought a 19ft 2007 Bluewater Image (exact same as Reinell BR191) from Gilligan's boats in Airdrie, Alberta. Having checked out all the mass produced boats i.e. Four Winns, Glastron, Maxum etc the Bluewater won hands down. We have managed to put 13 hours on the boat but it will have to be winterized real soon. The quality and workmanship on the boat is amazing. With the walk-through transom to the comfortable captain seat, driver seat with bolster, to the open bow, there is nothing on the market that starts to come close. We will, without a doubt, be sticking with Bluewater! If anyone is able to get to Airdrie, Alberta, we would highly recommend visiting Gilligan's!! Also any feeback/comments on Bluewater boats would be greatly appreciated.

                      Glad to hear there are happy Blue Water Owners. We just bought a 2006 BW Image 19" with the 4.3 Volvo. We are the second owners but it was bought with only 30 hrs on the motor.

                      Unfortunately we are having porposing problems when running at cruising speeds and the trim is full down. We have tried tree other props with veriying degree of success. THe best prop to date was the 5blade 21 pitch. We have been unable to adjut the trim, and are now being told that this boat is designed to run with full trim down. THis isn't sitting well with me as the boat will pick up speed and run smoother with some trim adjustment but will stay stable for only a few minutes before porposing. THe hull has hooks in it, and I'm told it is very sensative, and therefore doesn't require any trim adjustments. I have driven 6+ boats previously and have not come across this concern. We aretrying to decide whether to sell or not, but I'd like to know if running with trim full down while crusing is normal with newer technologies.

                      Any insight would be appreciated. We ran into one other owner of the exact same boat. They claimed to have similar performance but just got use to it and run with trim full down.

                          I bought a brand new 2007 Bluewater Vision from Gilligan's in Airdrie. My wife and I love this boat and we have been so impressed with it. The room in it for a 19.5 footer is awesome. We have a 270 hp Volvo Penta which hauls pretty darn good. Totally recommend Bluewater boats and will buy this brand again, no questions asked. And trust me, I have researched and looked at boats for years now.

                            I own a 2002 Blue Water Mirage. LOVE IT! I also have a buddy with a 2001 Blue Water Mirage. He bought his after going boating with us last Summer. Mine has the 5.0GI, which is port injected and my friends has a 5.7 carb.
