Can you post a pic of how the front deck is layed out? Looking at these vs a tracker.

The rod locker on the left side will hold 8' rods. There is a small storage between the rod locker and the console. VERY large locker just behind the seat post, with a smaller storage to its right. I looked at the Trackers but settled on this boat. This boat is completely foam filled below the floor and decks. The ride is very quiet. Front deck is very spacious.

It is a 12v trolling motor and has plenty of thrust. Even on windy days, I very rarely use any setting higher than 3 of 5.

I live in Spring. If you are not familiar with it, I am just north of Houston, just south of The Woodlands.

The boat motor combination is great. I have it rigged with a four blade prop. Gets on plane very quickly. Cruises at 30mph. Tops out at around 38mph. It rides very good. Ranger foam fills the entire space under the floor and decks which makes it a very quiet ride. It rides as quietly as a fiberglass boat without the extra weight.
