Default G3 Boats.

If your in the market for a new boat and have not heard of G3 boats, you might want to check them out. Very high quality for about the price of a Tracker.

I'll be running a new V322F fishing pontoon next season, and possibly might be replacing my Starcraft walleye 17(for sale for $5,000.00 with I pilot if I do) with a G3 Angler V18SF.

Check em out!

Is there something that sets them apart from the others?

I looked at the G-3's at the dealer up in Townsend Mt few years back and they are really nice boats, clean and roomy. I wanted the welded hull with no rivets so I went with the Tracker. I had heard of problems with their riveted hulls and just did not want the headaches.

Something I've always wondered about-if welded is better than rivets why do planes still have rivets?

why did an engine just fall right off a B-52 Bomber? LOL! J/K bud. Rivets have a tendency to loosen up, separate and start leaking vs the welded hull being solid. Welds can crack also but happens less then leaking rivets. Planes go through constant maintenance checks so I imagine we never hear about what they find or it would scare the shit out of us...or at least me!

If I had to guess... weight? A weld is def. stronger.

True! This comes from the superior design of the hulls and better parts that causes less pressure in turn a smoother ride. I have looked at older Lund boats that did have loose rivets though, mostly smaller boats that were abused and left out in the elements to rot.
