Triton VT 17

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have experience with this aluminum boat?? If so, how was the ride? What size engine did it have and did it appear to be enough HP? too much HP? Any other comments would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

My dad runs the 19ft Aluminum Triton, it is very solid, I think he has a 200 or 225, but I still like the glass better

Definitely can't beat the smooth ride,stability, and speed of glass boats...... I've owned both, and discovered that aluminum offers 2 things that glass doesn't: The ability to launch from pretty much all ramp conditions (dirt ramp, gravel ramp, shallow ramp, steep ramp..... no ramp) and a little more freedom and less stress in puting a few nicks on the hull. I'm pretty set on buying aluminum again. The VT series is pretty new and I was wondering how it compared to Tracker (I currently run a Tracker 17 foot Modified V), Crestliner, or any other modified V packages? From the picture of the VT 17 on Triton's HSOforum, the hull looks to be closer to a full V than most mod V hulls I've seen.

    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
