Alumacraft Tourney Sport


Lip RIPPER!

Question

Do any of you own this boat? 185 or 175? If so, what are your thoughts? I'm in the process of dealing on a new one and I am looking for some input. Any info would be appreciated.

I have a 2001 Tournamant Pro 170 with a 100 Yamaha 4 stroke. I love it. Very stable and dry with plenty of storage and live wells. Although I say bigger is better, I couldn't fit the TP175 in my garage. It is a lot wider. Great in the water but rough in the garage! Who are you dealing with?

Lip Ripper,

If it's any consolation, that is my dream boat...although I'm too young and couldn't afford it, after a lot of extensive research, that Tourney Sport 185 is my pick.

Hooksetter? How dry of ride is your boat? I dealt with Moorhead Marine. Really like the rod storage set up in this rig too and battery compartments. Will have it inless than 3 weeks. I can't wait.

You'll enjoy it. I have a TP 170 and it is a dry boat. Of course, when in a cross wind, you'll get a little wet. smile.gif
You'll stay much drier with the full windshield though!

Great, solid ride. I've had people who ride in my boat say it rides like a glass boat. I love the way it performs in all conditions. I never feel nervous in rough waters. I just wish I had a larger sized boat sometimes on lakes like LOW, Leech, Winni, etc...

They are also pretty tough from what I can see with the 2XB hull. I was watching Gillsipies waters and woods and they where on a river in Wisconsin busting 8 inches of ice with it. Big Dave was not worried at all crazy if you ask me.

I agree with CD. The ride is very solid - the 2XB is key. It is designed to push the water away from the boat and it does. Enjoy the new rig!

Ripper, let's plan on it! By the way, are you working at all this summer or just a litte R&R?

Fishing and being a dad first, b-ball and weight room second, R and R third. In that order. How about you?

Well let's see, I don't plan on being much of a dad unless I get a phone call from some chick. I've got vacation the last two weeks of May and hopefully I'll be off as much of June and July as possible, luckily the summer is the slowest time of year on the rail. Other than that I'm going to fish, fish, fish. Well, off to work tonight, then I got all my stuff coming tommorrow for spinner rigs so I'll have to start tying them up soon!! OPEN WATER IS NEAR.

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
