My wife and I got us a new crappie machine last Saturday. Needed a bigger rig to handle the 3 Grandkids.
2006 Skeeter SL210 with Yamaha 200HPDI. Can't wait to get it slimed. I'm in the process of transferring electronics from old boat. Got a LiftSaver mount from Ron (BlueNitro), and now have it installed. See install pics in general equipment section. It's nice to not have to worry about trolling mtr. hitting the bow roller. Got a new prop and lift handle from David at Shut-up and Fish. Both of these guys are really standup individuals. They answered all my question and gave me tips on the best ways to do the install.
Thanks David and Ron! thumb
Here are a couple of pics.

Congratulations Rodney. SL-210 is a good all around grand kid boat. Your for sure not going to hide from anyone in that dude.

Does the 3 blade prop outperform the safari prop in open water?

It pulled my 18'6" Bay Stealth at 3.2 mph. The two blade that was on this boat pulled it at 2.7 but shook really bad. The same as my other one. That's why I use a three blade. Much smoother.
