Right on bud! We got the 700 in black. I put a trunk and back seat on it for the wife to ride...since of coarse it was her idea to buy it!!!I got a Tracker 570 from Basspro. Its a re-branded Arctic cat actually. Its Black and I removed all the stupid safety stickers that were Everywhere! Thing was covered with safety stickers.
Good luck with the second home.My son is getting stationed out here at Peterson AFB if the DoD lifts their no move order, so I am building a house for him. However, if he doesn't make it out here any time soon, I will be screwed because there will be no rent money coming in and I'm not renting it out for free. This Covid-19 is making me rethink the house and give up my earnest money. Luckily, still employed with a big DoD contractor but not working from home.
I am in the same camp, and have been thinking about one of those too, but I don't use the baitcaster often enough to make the upgrade worthwhile.On the fishing front, I was looking at getting one of those Shimano digital control baitcaster reels because I'm a birdnester extraordinaire!
I just looked up Powertech props. The selection seems good. I don't know much about props. I went cheap (Solas Titan HR). There are props out there for more than twice what I paid. It turned out OK for me. I got a little more top end speed and grip. I didn't have issues with the propeller slipping with my previous boats. I think it's the Lund hull design. They are made to ride high, which means the propeller is not submerged as deep. At high rpm, I could trim the motor up much without having the propeller slip. I think prop savants call that "ventilation."I upgraded the stainless yamaha props on my big boat to powertech's with soft hubs. I hope to reduce chatter at trolling speeds.
That's a sweet deal! Paid $267 for mineI got that prop online for like $265. I think.
