I know what you are going thru. I ran a Skeeter WX2000T with a 150 Yamaha for 6 years, then decided a smaller boat was in order. Ordered a Backtroller without a motor as John was having trouble getting Suzuki's then so I put a 90 hp. Yamaha on it. The boat is made like few others and is top quality. Not a fast boat but a good boat. backtrolls well but a bit squirrely at wide open throttle in larger waves just hang on to the tiller handle. this is where Johns new tiller assist would solve that problem. For me after running a 20' glass boat then going smaller I did struggle a bit so I ended up taking a butt kicking and sold it. I now run a Skeeter MX 1825 and love it. The wife likes the windshield and the 150 SHO is more than enough motor to serve our needs. Overall you will not find a better built, higher quality tiller boat at 17' than the backtroller, you give up some space but if it is big enough for you and the wife you will love it. Good luck in your search.

Me too. Drove around the whole lake today looking at work and stopping a different jobs. Made a tough ride home just wanted to grab the boat and get out. Enjoy it while you can today was a beauty day to be out on the water.

Al Mass is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet and not to mention a heck of a fisherman. Tom Wilson is my neighbor and is a great fisherman as well and know the lake really well. If both of them are busy then try calling Shriver's bait as a lot of guides hang our there and I am sure someone has some free time.

Sitting in my office watching trucks drive down the lake. I think this will be the latest I have seen in over 20 years but it could change.

Since Taber's has closed up no one has yet to really fill the spot completely. I drive to Hackensack and go to Swanson's as they have the best bait around and hold and treat their live bait much like Ron at Taber's always did.

We once got a ticket for having oar rigs on our canoes. We rigged up our 19' freighters with outriggers to support oars on and that was considered mechanical and a no no. Just like portage wheels are allowed on the motoized portions but not in the non motorized as they are once again considered mechanical. Lots of wasy to argue that one and we tried. How about a lantern or cook stove? Your fishing pole reel, seems to be a bit of lack of comon sense here.
