Thanks for all the help with answering the questions, it helped a lot with making my decision. Love it, it was challenging getting the boat in the garage and without the help of the wheel dollies, would have been almost impossible.

That's a light enough boat to man handle. Just remember to drop the motor when putting it in the garage. That will save you some room. A fine looking boat though. I am considering getting rid of my bass boat and going to aluminum myself. Love the camo!!

Thanks for the advice King, I'm trying to figure out now which is the best way to keep the batteries charged and ready to go....onboard or just manual old fashion charger

I've loved Xpress boats every since I saw the camo pattern...seems like a quality built boat

You can't beat a quality onboard charger. Just plug it in and forget about it.

Bought and mounted a Minn Kota 3-bank last night. Didnt want to drop $130 on a charger but figured (hope) it would be last.

I used a regular charger for a year and it sucked. So much nicer to just plug in and go. Keeps both of my batteries up without having to swap out.

Love my tin boat! As for chargers, good choice, should serve you well. Rather than plug it straight into the outlet, plug it into a garden timer that only comes on for 2 hours a day, saves your batteries and your charger. It really only needs to be on a couple hours a day.
