Should be a mid to upper 70's boat. Not quite as smooth as a champion but will handle anything you can. My dad had a 180v charger that I probably put 1000 hours in behind the wheel and never let me down.

Excellent. Good thinking on the equity. Came to the same conclusion many years ago - my "bass" boat:

1994 - a lot of people think I've had a heart bypass or "bye pass" as we go by - but I think another thing - I bypassed a heck of a lot of bankers and payments all along the way. Never had the first fish ask how much I paid for the boat.

Again - congrats - a good looking boat that'll get the job done. All that counts.

No but its the closest thing out there to Champion now, don't care what the Ranger guys say it will defiitely outride a Ranger


That boat'll ride circles around a Ranger, some folks will argue that a Charger rides better than a Champion. I dunno about that but wouldn't put money either way.

With the really high resale value of most used boats, I don’t blame you for selling the ranger and getting this boat with one hour on the motor! Looks nice.

I did the following:

New Carpet - Thanks V&S
2X Talons
Ionix Lithium batteries all around - 3X12V for the Force and 1X Cranking
Garmin Force Trolling Motor
Garmin 126 SV Console
Garmin 126SV Bow
Panoptix
Rewired everything and put in new pumps

Zach at Southwest Parts installed everything yesterday and we're now ready to finish the break in for the motor..... Heading to Cedar Creek tomorrow for TTO Championship!!

Oh yeh, if anyone knows where to get a SOLID Charger cover, please let me know, only thing I see worth a dang is the Aurora covers.

Here are a few pics.
