I bought the Ranger RT from Cabelas. Had to be ordered from the factory but worth the wait.

I put down payment on my tracker in February and they had it built in less than a month. Only buy what you really want it is a big investment.

Polarkraft makes an awesome boat. Fun n sun. Super wide beam and way more stout than a tracker. Have owned both over the years.

The tracker 175 with a 75 merc will scoot pretty good.

I have a 2016 Ranger RT188 with a Merc 115 on it, Livescope, Ultrex, two new batteries, in very good condition I can sell you cheaper than you can buy a new Tracker. And IMO it’s a better boat. Really !

We have a Tracker 175 with the 75 Merc. We like it a lot. It’ll do about 35 mph, which is fine with me.

We had a Tracker 160 before that. I didn’t like it much, but probably would still have it except the wife didn’t like that it had only one cup holder. So…I suggested that the 175 had 5 or 6 cup holders, and she said she wanted one. Ok. It’s all about the cup holders….

I know of 3 PolarKraft boats that have had bad issues with leaks including one that my son owned. All were bought from fun n sun in Cleburne. PolarKraft said it was a design flaw with the boats basically. I will say that Fun n Sun made it right with my son on a trade in for a Skeeter SX. I'd never recommend a PK.

Lowe’s


call it what you will...he is not definitely not anywhere near the top of the list for QB's that I would choose needing a FG or touchdown drive late in the game.

If you haven’t bought anything yet and are interested I have a 2015 Lowe stinger 175 that I have been considering selling. It is equipped with an 75hp Merc 4 stroke with less than a hundred hours. Accessories include Ultrex, Garmin 93sv at Console, hummingbird helix 7 at the bow. I’ll probably list it on the forum this week as I have been kicking around the idea of upgrading my rig.

I went out with a friend on his Tracker and we couldn't stay dry. The spray from the bow was terrible.

I have a friend with a BIG tracker, 150 merc 4S, dual talons. The rear deck can’t stay above the water line too well. I fished in it once and my shoes were soaked.

That is a big Tracker. I owned a pro tournament 17 many years ago and it was the wettest boat I've ever been in. There wasn't an inch of dry storage anywhere on the boat. if you had anything at all you cared about, you better put it in a ziplock bag.
