Aluminum Bass Boats

Post by Onetimeonly x--> » Mon Jan 28, 2019 5:58 pm

Looking for help from those who have any experience with any aluminum bass boat. Mainly fishing an inland lake, currently fishing out of a Deep V boat. Wind is always an issue, looking for a lower profile boat. Any input on G3 or Tracker Mod V's ? Open to suggestions in other manufacturers, thanks...

I like mine, welded hull, olive drab paint, nothing fancy, it almost invites neglect, bought it new in 2005, still as solid as day one, mine used for everything, from fishing, hunting, wake boarding/skiing, and just cruising around, its rated for 90hp I have a 75hp, it will run 50mph with that set up

I’ve been told by those who use them extensively that you want the welded hull, not a riveted hull.

That's a slippery slope right there. Most professional or avide boaters recommending welded hulls are not typically recommending the types or styles of boat that the general public buys. Certainly not an argument that would make sense having when discussing tracker or G3 price point. Which is where I shop as well, my hull is welded.
Welded hull vs rivet (as well as glass) both have there ups and downs and the most important detail being the type of water it will live on. Inland lakes or puddle jumping, for the most part won't notice a difference.
