I’ve owned three different new fishing boats from three different companies over the last 20 years or so and never once got a manual for the boat, just for the outboard. Not sure if there are many boats that even have manuals for them.

What did you want to know?  Anything specific?

I know this is going to be a bit confusing but here is some of the history on the the Triton VT-17.  In 2008 a VT-17 was still being made and owned by Triton Boats.  It was part of Triton's original line of aluminum bass boats.  In 2010 I almost purchased one, but decided to go with the Lowe Stinger 170, due to its floor plan. There was more front deck storage.   Around 2011-2012 Lowe/Chrestliner purchased the entire Triton aluminum bass boat line. Part of that line became the Lowe Boats "HP series" of aluminum bass boats. They moved the VT series of boats over to the Chrestliner boat line. They then dropped my Stinger 170 floor plan.  They continued making my hull, but only in the 175 multi species version.  Around this time the entire Ranger/ Triton/ Stratos ownership changed again and so once all that happened Triton started building their current boats. Chrestliner may be able to help you with some info on their boat since they continued making a VT-17 VT-18 and a VT-19.

Again if there are any specific questions you have try asking them here, I am sure someone could help you.

Actually what I was trying to find out about was the dash

panel switches and buttons and in the last 2 hours I've

learned what everything is for and there is a horn on the

boat that doesn't work,but West Marine has a replacement

horn and horn button switch and I'll repair that soon,I thank

very much for your help and if I get confused about anything

I'll remember to contact you,thanks again and take care.
