What kind of Bass boat do you own?
Why did you choose the one you got?

I know this is probably a worn out question, I'm a new female Angler to this forum...just excited flag

OK, I'll bite...

Ranger Z518 w/ Merc 150 4 stroke
Lowrance Carbon units w/ TotalScan
Ultrex 80 24v


I bought the Z518 as I looked at all competitors in the 18' range and found the best bang and fit for the money. It was a very close race with a Phoenix 618.

Looking back if I knew I was moving to Texas and fishing the wind, I would have made the update to a 20' rig.

Caymas CX 21 Merc 250 4stroke. Ready to make a switch and felt they were the best boat available and NOT owned by JM.

Not saying it is the best but I sure like it a lot and i have had too many boats to count, Bullet 21 SDC, Mercury 300R, Lowrance electronics and Ghost trolling motor.

You being female will understand this one.


.....I own a Skeeter cause I could pay cash for it and NOT let the Wife know what I really spent.

2007 skeeter sx 190 w 150 vmax. With good T.m. and electronics. The best i can afford.
Its the best because i paid 9500 cash for it 6 years ago and other than scheduled maintenance hasnt given me an ounce of trouble. Probably have it out 100+ times a year.
Id love a new 20 footer with a 250. And one day ill have one. But a 4 year old ,a mortgage that im trying to pay off in 10 years. 401k, and espp. By the time my all my obligations are met. Not alot of meat left on the bone. Prolly for the next 10 years ill have an old boat and truck. Thats paid for but well kept. Dont buy into the notion you need the top of the line boat to catch fish. The best boat is something reliable that you can afford. Now if money was no option id have a new skeeter, phoenix, or basscat

We own a Ranger RT188 with a Yamaha 115 SHO.

We were looking at a Tracker 175TXW with a 75 Mercury on it that was brand new.

Came to the decision to buy it and was waiting for a days and the 1.5 year old Ranger came up for sale for almost the same money.

My wife decided she wanted the Ranger so she bought it. banana

I liked my Champions and loved my Triton. Spinal surgery put an end to that. Switch to a bay boat 3 years ago and other then the speed or lack there of I dont miss bass boats at all.
