  • 1994 Allante 180 - stern drive hits swim platform when tilting

    Hi,

    I just bought a '94 Campion Allante 180 Special Edition bowrider with Volvo Penta 4.3GL/SX. The rear of the boat has a slight molded "swim platform" across the boat. When I tilt up the stern drive, it hits the underside of the platform before it is all the way up. The bottom of the leg is then below the hull line. I don't see any way of raising it any higher save for carving a slot in the platform. Is this really how they built them? The tilt will keep trying to go up unless you release the button. So I think the limit switches are not set up properly either.

    This photo shows it almost as high as it will go.

    I got the skeg stuck in the sand on a beach recently. The outdrive just does not tilt up enough. What a crappy design!
