Thinking about buying a zx190. What are yalls opinions on these boats? Good or bad. Never fished from a skeeter and dnt really know much about them. Boat has a Yamaha HPDI 175. TIA
I have had mine for almost three years now. I still love it.
2012-2014 ZX190s are essentially the same. Great storage. 8ft rods fit in either rod locker. The live wells are plenty big. They are the same size as my buddy's ZX20.
It fishes the same as it's larger brothers. Very stable, large front deck.
With the 175 it's a nimble, quick boat. With a full load, full fuel and full livewells it take a few seconds longer to get on plane. Empty it take about 3 seconds, full it's about 6.
It is a very dry ride even in big stuff. The ride in big swells will depend on the driver. Seat time will teach the best ways and angles to approach rough water. It's a stable ride but can get rough. You may need to ice down your marbles after a long, rough run.
