What first bass boat should I buy?


Recommended Posts

@Sam, you mentioned that you have a Ranger.

I also learned via my Tracker experience to put the plug into my Ranger BEFORE leaving the house. ;)

I'm assuming its fiberglass? If so, can I ask what made you switch from the tracker? Also, would anyone recommend getting a fiberglass boat as a first boat?

Ohm not positive, but ohm gonna say that has the potential to cause a series of negative possibly terminal outcomes, watt is the current status?...

Watt's law are you talking about here.

LOL. I'm curious as to whether he actually wired them in series or not with a 12v motor. On a bow foot model, one may not realize the problem, if running a transom one on 5 for an extended period, it would be obvious.

I am guessing he meant parallel but they may have been wired in series. Not sure how the TM circuitry would last for 12 years at double the operating voltage though.

Wanted a larger and faster bass boat with more storage area and yes, it is fiberglass.

 

You get the boat you feel the safest and that has the layout you like and storage space that you need.

 

Have fun checking out what boats are out there and then make your choice.

Congrats on the new boat @Flatrock, and welcome to Bass Resource!! I'm new to the forum as well, this is a great place to be! I hope I find a deal like that when i'm ready to purchase!!

Thanks...  I have been wanting a boat all my life, but I work too much to justify the expense,  but the past couple yrs my interest of getting back into fishing has been getting stronger.  This yr I made a good effort in trying to fish my all I managed to do was catch rocks on the bottom and no catfish... never mind bass.  I just needed something to get me out there where they are... thus the slow process of looking for a boat.  1st was a small puddle jumper, then I thought that wasn't going to work in a lake, so I thought about mid size boat like BT/ Alumacraft/ Lowe, ect...   The one thing that I kept asking myself is why is everyone selling their 25-30 yr old boats ?   Then you have the "I don't have a title, but you don't need one" (Tenn is a registration only state) ...  When this guy approached me and I found this review, I just knew this was it...   No worries about floor rotting and having to rebuild floor or transom to replace... its all aluminum.  I shouldn't need another boat at my age...
