You can tow this boat with a quad haha. Trailers very easy.

yeah I noticed the weight is really low, which is due to a smaller boat that's aluminum. Which for me would be really nice. I have all winter to decide so I have some time xD. I think if I do anything I'll get my pathy ready with new suspension, fluids, etc. Only issue I see is storage. I might have to get one of those covered carports for the PA winters.

That's a dandy! Very nice. I picked my Classic up last weekend and got my breakin taken care of last Sunday. I've been out in it the last 3 days. I'm waiting for a couple Garmins to put on it. I really like the boat. My only gripe so far is rod storage. Going to have to figure something out there.

Congrats on your new boat! It meets my needs. It’s a tool that gets the job done right!

So I've been out a few times at night and it gets pretty dark out there :nod:.  I been wanting to install some deck lights instead of using flashlights, so I purchased these lights from Amazon.  I got the red, which I thought might be better for night vision.  I considered orange, but I was afraid they might be too bright in the dark. 

 

Anyhow, they are nice lights, just peel and stick right on the side of the gunnels.  I know, I read the reviews and they have a problem sticking sometimes.  I cleaned the area with rubbing alcohol first, then stuck the lights down.  I've been out twice since I stuck them on.  There are a couple of spots in which I'm going to have to try to re-glue an area down, but it's not too bad. 

 

I will say the lights are kind of delicate and might not be the best choice for a bass boat or how I'm using them.  They were inexpensive enough that if they don't work out, I know I will replace them with something more substantial. Time will tell. 

 

Sorry about the pics, it wasn't dark when I took them.  :Captain:

Mostly impressed with the switch and text label.  Looks stock for sure.  You can always replace the lights with some better ones if those don't work out. But looks nice. I was thinking about using red lights myself to do the exact same thing. I'm always in the dark and the light that I need the most is on the deck of the boat.

Thanks!  The label is just P-Touch black with white lettering, trim it minimal size.  Getting the right switch was a pain.  Last year when I was installing my voltmeter I wanted to get the OEM switch.  I went to BPS but they didn't really know the part # for the specific switch I was looking for.  Tracker likes these switches, I don't know why they wouldn't have some or know better what I was looking for.  :dontknow:  Anyhow, they busted out a book of electrical parts and ordered me one.

 

The toggle switch itself is common and can be found anywhere.  It's the large beveled retaining ring that's hard to find.  Sierra puts out a switch with the ring, but the switch is illuminated.  This is what I got the first time at BPS.  I had some regular toggle switches so I used them with the retaining ring for the stock look.  For the deck lights I just ordered the switch from Amazon, the price was about what I paid at BPS.  I paid a lot for those rings :rolleyes:.

Is it a simple wire hookup to the battery?

Love this boats look.  Really digging the throwback.  I want to get into fishing more and this is probably all I would need.  The only one for sale near me is actually more than they were brand new.....but it does say it’s only been ran for 5 hours.

I've had the heritage for a year now and still absolutely love it.  The throwback look is a definite drawing card.   I don't think you could go wrong with the heritage or the classic.

What’s the difference between the two exactly?  Other than color and a year or two.

 

If I go now I’m either going with someone or taking my dads early 2000s ProCraft out.  It’s a fine boat and all, but they are 1.5 hours away so it’s not really convenient to even go once a month, much less every weekend

In short, the heritage was made by Bass Tracker in 2018 to celebrate their 40th anniversary.  Orders for this boat stopped on March 16 2018 due to so many orders coming in that it took the remainder of the year to fulfill those orders.  Due to this success Bass Tracker in 2019 began making the Classic.  The heritage has Chocolate brown carpet the classic has gray.  Both have 40 hp motors but the classic can be upgraded to a 50 hp.  Maybe others can chime in with other differences or correct me if I've gotten something wrong.

Thanks for the response!  That was all I could see being different as well.  The classic looks like you also have to purchase a cover whereas the Heritage I believe came with one.

The Classic also comes painted, I think the choices are red and black

Has anyone replaced their cleats yet?Thinking about replacing mine with folding ones.Have one installed midship and I really like it.I have always been careful but the other day I set my rod on the bow to land my dads fish then went to grab it and get on trolling motor quick and snapped it about 6 inches above reel seat.An excuse to get a new rod I guess.
