                  I have a 2016 Misty Harbor Biscayne Bay 2085FS. I am less than impressed with the boats build quality.  
                    The first summer I used it, the foam tape in the side rails { designed to revent rattling } started comng loose. This looked like someones underwear sort of stuff hanging down. 
             Next, the docking lights would not work. The dealer sent a guy out to fix them. He cycled the switch a few times, and they came on. He informed me the lights were fixed. They failed the next time I needed them.
                      End of season, I asked for the above problems to be repaired. 
                      The following season, the tape was repaired " somewhat ". The docking lights worked, until the evening when I needed them.
                       Next, the livewell supply hose cracked open from being stretched over the top of the toon from the dealer, and from the sun beating down on it. The dealer used the wrong type of hose. They used a soft squishy, ribbed hose.
                       Next, the livewell pump siezed up. 
                       Next, I found that foam tape falling out of the side rails, inside the changing room, and port side storage hold.
                     I have messaged Misty harbor about the livewell hose. They fnally replied that they would recommend to their design team, to use " Series 48 spiral reinforced plastic hose " for the livewells. 
                     This summer, I replaced the livewell pump, the pick-up hose, installed a timer for the livewell, and stuffed that foam tape back in place, but applied a silicone glue to the space it goes into. 
                       I hope if any other Misty harbor owners have these problems, they can get them fixed before their warranty expires.Thumbs Down

Work goes on forever, and the party never ends.
