    Ummm yeah, If that SKEETER is anywhere near your budget I would try and make this deal work. That seems like a steal to me. With that SHO , you're going to save so much money in oil / fuel cost. Like I said, if it's in your budget, it's a no brainer holmes.

    Ask yourself will it take an 18 foot boat to get those things? Not sure the fish care either way.

    Too much to decide between still. Will try to get out on a few boats before I start shopping.

    This one would be worth an offer but that color is so hideous I can't do it

    I haven't heard back about Charles but I will continue following up on this. I hope he can get you a deal and he can get some brownie points for "selling you" on a triton.

    currently thinking park at angle in garage and get the 18fter, that way Im not tempted to upgrade again until I can get a 250 which will be a while.

    TR-186 vs TZX-180 is what it might come down to.

    Here you go.
    Split the difference at 17' 4" and call it good!
    Ok, so you have to fudge 2", folks doing that all the time anyway......

    my buddy has an older model 16ft gruman and it is comfortable for two full grown dudes to fish out of...

    The only thing different is the amount of storage, and the size of the livewell...

    that being said, it is slower, and takes a little while to get where you are going with a smaller motor, which means turning around to head back to the ramp a little sooner when you are fishing in tournys...
