Need some help picking out a new boat.

If money is no object, Princecraft makes a huge aluminum deck boat. It's basically a 22 or 24 foot modified v john with a raised floor, tons of in-floor storage, deck sides added, tons of seating, and tons of HP capacity. I myself would get one but I'm working on a 17 foot Crestliner Tiger Muskie. ...

Need some help picking out a new boat.

B&R Marine in Taylorville Illinois. Price seems a little flexible at different dealerships throughout the Midwest but this was close for me. I have been looking there and emailing PJ, but its a 6 hour drive for me. Did they come off their quoted price? Do you have any other dealers I could look at?

Need some help picking out a new boat.

Well, I'd didn't take long to figure out my Pro175 was too small for my growing family who wanted to go to the water with me. The original intent of the tin was me and my younger daughter using it to fish only. However, the wife,, older daughter, grandchild and son in law also wanted to go. So the 1...

1997 Tracker Pro Team 17 overhaul

Is there a fuse on the motor itself? My 2004 has one on the upper right rear corner of the motor. When it fails, the power tilt won't work, I found that the hard way. Also, since you pulled the console, check the wiring harness plug connections in the console. The plugs have split male pins that col...

Starbrite Ultimate Aluminum Cleaner/Restorer

I wanted to post this dramatic picture of how well this stuff cleaned off years of stain from my Tracker. I think the previous owner never even washed this tin and after 13 years it had a lot of stains and oxidation. I tried several different cleaners including compounds with my buffer. And nothing ...

Renovating a 2004 Tracker Pro175

I think I'm done with the interior, if I can live with the painted and not carpeted hatch.

Renovating a 2004 Tracker Pro175

Well, I touched almost everything on this boat at least once, except the bunk boards, which will be recovered shortly. As I wait on my R&R hatch lid, I got board so I made this simple tire carrier. It is high and tight, as in high off the road and tight to the frame without interference with the boa...
