I have a 2002 Tracker Targa --walk thru dual console , 17'6" . It's a V-hull with a 115 4 stroke Mercury . The pro's , it's easy on gas , easy to trailer and tow ( I have an old Tundra , but used to tow it with a 4-Runner ) . I can put tons of stuff in my boat , I have not had any issues with the hull or trailer . The motor has had some issues , but mostly related to the not driving it hard enough to keep the sparkplugs clean .
The drawbacks ----- the front deck is to small for two people , the aluminum construction makes the boat light , but also makes it a little more difficult to handle on windy days , especially of your trying to finesse fish with plastics . It's OK in wind less than 10mph , anything over 15-20mph , really difficult to fish plastics slowly.
I liked it when my kids were little and I wanted them to participate in using the boat , the deeper construction made it easier to have them both on it and for me to feel safer with them .
If your a tournament guy , with two people fishing , these are not the best set up .
