Would like an opinion about my boat!

4 posts in this topic

I am new to this site. We moved down to Fl. 5 yr's ago from the Mound area.

Not what we had expected and we are moving back up mn. in the spring of 07. I have a

1996 boat. It is a 17'6" Aquasport 175 Osprey Classic C/C Loaded with all the great fishing pkg's. It's got a Johnson 88 special motor on it and I just love this boat it is a great fishing boat.

I was just wanting to get an idea and an opinion on how this boat would be for deep water lakes and shallow lakes. It only draws 10 inches w/motor up. Should I sell or by another up there. What would you do? Thanks. Good Hookin'

I wouldnt sell the boat. It sounds like it would be a great all fish boat!

Depends on your main fishing interests........if you tend to or intend to fish Millie or other big waters for walleye....that can get pretty rough, I have run Skeeter bass Boats for twenty years, just sold my zx185 with a 175 intruder, next boat is going to be a deepV Skeeter.....alot more operator friendly when it get's nasty out there and a whole lot less punishing. Keep yours for a while, if it is not fitting the bill.............tradeit!...........LOBY smile.gif

I was in the Navy and stationed in Jax Fla. I had a 19' Cobia CC then with graph, gps, the works. I sold it thinking it woukld not be a good boat for up north. I now kick myself for selling it everytime I go out on a big lake (Especially Superior). I would love to have that boat back now. I'd say keep it. You can always buy a used small 12-14 footer for putting around the small lakes and streams.

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.
