I'm glad you started this!
I'm almost upgrade ready.
Love my 1542 War Eagle with the 20 hp for same reasons.
Want to fish Travis and Buchanan more, so torn between glass bay boat, alum deep v, or larger modv (18-20').
Also go to Galveston frequently to see family, so inshore or flats wouldn't be out of the question
This'll cover one angle for me.
Not trying to thres jack you though Blaster! Even looked at your boat as maybe a 2nd for Galveston.

Blaster mine is a little older but the sweetest thang in the world for my needs. She has been fully recarpeted this year and trimmed with aluminum stripping. Its harder loading my kayak than it is my Tracker. Sixty horses will push a lite little aluminum TRacker like a beast. Good luck on your new purchase amigo.

Looking back on it now, there is one boat that I wish I had looked a little more closely at. That boat is the G3 1756 CC (Center console). That boat would have been a little better suited for my salt water fishing yet still fit in my garage. It was comparably priced to the others and did not have carpet (which is good for salt use). I ultimately chose the bass boat layout thinking I'd do mostly bass fishing but in reality I fish for bass less than any other species I target. I also adamantly wanted the rod storage but on a 17' boat, that rod locker was pretty much useless so it sat empty most of the time. So really think about the type of fishing you do. Are you primarily a bass fisherman or do you chase multiple species? Just because you haven't fished the salt, would you ever? I didn't really know how much I'd love it until I went. I went for the first time in March of 2012 and have made about 20 trips to the coast since that time. Get one that will match what you want to do.

I had a Tracker 175 with 60 HP 4 stroke for a while back in 2008. I likes it pretty well, it was easy to trailer and launch and the engine ran great. But, it was a bit unstable side to side and my wife hated fishing from its back seat. Also, I found the Aluminum to get really hot during summer fishing, and you could boil eggs in the live well.God does not deduct from man's allotted time the hours spent fishing.

I own a 2012 Pro Team 175 with the 60HP four stroke. I love this boat. Quite ride with the all welded aluminum hull. Planes out quickly and top speed with three in the boat and full of gear is around 32 MPH on GPS, not blazing, but fast enough to get you where you want to go in a reasonable timeframe. Usually get around 7MPG. Fill the tank once and can run 3-4 all day outings without having to fill up. The live well is great and keep my fish kicking all day. I launch this boat all the time solo with no problems. You can't beat this boat for the money. I'm on the lake 3 times a week and have not had a single problem with the boat. If you plan on fishing tournaments I would look at the Pro Team 190 series with the 115 HP motor (not a whole lot more money than the 175). Only regret I have, fishing tournaments is not having the speed with the 60HP to get across the lake faster and loosing fishing time. Also I think the 190 is about a foot or so longer. A 7' rod on the deck of the 175 takes up the whole deck with no room to spare, but fits nonetheless. Buy new, get the 5 year warranty, upgrade the electronics, and you have an all around great bass boat. Also the four stroke is very dependable and low maintenance. Hope this helps.President - Integrated Solar & Power

A friend of mine that I fish with, just bought a new 175 TXW with a 60HP from Tracker Marine about 3 months ago and LOVES it. It runs great, has plenty of room for 3 people and is VERY stable. I think he would highly recommend it and
definately you should check em out at Tracker Marine on 183 (Gary Pender) He fished with 3 in his boat for crappie on Georgetown until about midnight last night and they had lots of room. Usually we fish for large mouth but they wanted to try out the Dead Sea for crappie after dark. Haven't heard how they did yet. I fished with them until dark and only caught 2 LMB, but it was a good day on the water.
