I sold my boat 5 years ago because family needs and can't justify buying a new one yet.  I planted the idea last fall with the wife though and in the next 2 years I will find and purchase our family boat!!  Patience🚣‍♂️

I worked in Fiberglass building campers, whirlpools, Spas,....... for about 20 years. Looking at the fiberglass work of both boats at the last Boat show I went to. By far I would say the Warrior boats were built a lot nicer with very clean glass work and surface finish. IMO.

The motors and accessories cost the same no matter what boat they get mounted to.  I suggest getting the most boat you can handle financially.  It is rare to hear some say they have too much boat.  I am a Ranger owner.  On my second one.  Bumped up from a 20 to a 21, 225 to a 300hp.

Ya this aint my first boat 

I had 2095 yar craft it was a wheel boat I'm just going back to tiller 

One thing for sure I dont need all that horsepower ,I had 150 on my 2095 it was plenty for me 

I dont do any tournaments any more so no need to beat any one any where ...lol  

Most the time I'm on big water and you only run wide open a 1/3 of the time any way

Boats...... right next to pick-up trucks on ridiculousness of pricing. 

 

I have zero experience in the fiberglass world, but I know of someone with a new Ranger and it's a pretty slick fishing machine.  Also hear great things about Skeeters, too.  

 

Sizing is all dependent on your needs.  I agree, get as much boat as you can afford, but 20 footers are beast though!

A lot depends on how many folks will be fishing out of it.    Probably don't need a 20 footer for one or two folks except maybe on LOW.

Agree on that delcecchi  50% of time just me and hardly 

ever more than 2 

Thats what kinda pushing towards the smaller boats 

I think once a guy got use to the smaller one wouldnt notice the difference 

little slower but not a big deal

I have been fishing out of a 1775 provee for 20 years now.   Put a suzuki 140 on to replace the old 2+2 merc.  

Still works great.  for me and sometimes another person.

Wow I would think that 140 would push you right along 

Must be a wheel boat to have that big of a motor on it 

That is the only motor That I have never heard any one whine about 

They just keep on running !!!!!!!!!!!

I 'm kinda looking at a warrior with a tiller I40 on it 1890 

Its Red so it would match my new Yukon Would coool going down the road lol

On a good day with me and all my fishing stuff, a 9.9 two stroke merc kicker, trolling motor, most of a tank of gas, might do 44.  (on the gps).  Might be able to get a little more with a fancier prop, but they are expensive and hard to find for Suzuki.

 

Yeah, console, wheel.

    • I don't personally but have a friend up in Itasca county where his kid does. they can it and he says its like a tuna spread. its good smoked but bones galore. I've also had pickled sucker and no bad!!!!!
    • Maybe he finally remembered his password? 🤷‍♂️😁
    • I recognized pheasantpete’s handle.  Been registered since 2008 and posted in this thread back in ‘14.  Maybe he just finally checked his notifications. 😁     Never heard of a spammer that was THAT patient! 🤣
    • Anyone spear spring suckers? Any tips or tricks to it? Is it allowed to spear after dark with a light? Do you smoke the suckers or make fish patties?
    • And when it happens it will probably have one if it's main ingredients just happen to be alcohol based. Strange how that works.    
    • LOL     Why is this ancient thread being revived?  I'm waiting for the product placement in this saga.
    • I say don't keep any gas in anything that is going to sit. Any problems with fuel are water problems not the alcohol. You take out the alcohol in Minnesota in winter you get frozen fuel lines. This was common in winter for decades until ethanol was added but they used isopropyl rather than ethyl alcohol. In fact many of the " remedies" are just other forms of alcohol. If you get so much water in the fuel that the alcohol gets saturated and phases out then you have a contamination issue and the problems won't be solved by  removing the alcohol. You will just have more unbound water sitting at the bottom of your tank building sludge.   Lots of the problems with small engines are derived from the chemicals that come up with the crude in the well. Companies blend this into the fuel rather than pay to dispose of it and that is what gunk's up the fuel system. Gumout was invented long before ethanol and carb cleaner was a regular maintenance procedure needed because of those chemicals mucking up the fuel system. Alcohol is a very good solvent and it does a good job of cleaning up deposits left from those chemicals but as a consequence of that cleaning action you will get clogged Jets and such periodically. But in that case alcohol is the good guy that is cleaning up the dump left behind by the fuel. 
    • I tell people all the time do not use ethanol at all in equipment your store for extended times. I often hear but, but I use it in my car all the time. I respond do you drive your car often? Yes they say. I tell them then your fuel did not have time to become water saturated. There is good reason wise car collectors store their prized classics with non-ethanol fuel only.
    • Bacterial growth in carb bowl filled with water & ethanol. The ethanol component of the fuel becomes saturated with water and settles to bottom of fuel tank. Over time it goes down fuel line by gravity into carb bowl as fuel evaporates out. The water saturated ethanol separates from gasoline as it is heavier.
    • Here is some of the jelly from water being absorbed by ethanol and then bacteria acting on it. Luckily I caught this early before it caused more corrosion. Will post pic of rag with "jelly" (bacterial slime) I pulled out of this carb bowl. Stihl also has some wonderful pics & warnings of damage done by ethanol you can google.
