    I love riveted tinnies. I've had a 16' for many years that doesn't owe me one nickle. Last season,I put a new motor on it (Merc 25 4-stroke). This year,I'm looking at replacing it with a comparable model with the same options (bilge,lights,livewell,trolling motor pre-wire). Imagine my shock finding out it'll set me back $10K. Holy crap!! Maybe,I'll just do the repairs on the old one. It needs a transom beef-up that will cost a hell of a lot less than $10K.

    Did you know that 4/3 of people have trouble with fractions?

    Same here. I just replaced the chunk of plywood on the transom on my almost 50 yr old Bluefin with a piece of white oak. Should get another 50 years.

    Modern pontoons/tri-toons can also fit for both fishing & skiing.
    My bubby has a Lund tri-toon with a 115 Merc.
    Used mostly for fishing & cruising but would have no problem pulling skiers.

    So far I've had a Princecraft (it was good ..no issues) a 2006 Lund Classic 1775 Sport (great boat..traded it in in 2019) a 2009 Lund WC, a 2019 Lund Impact 1875 Sport and this year a 2020 Lund 1775 Impact Sport...I plan to hang onto this one for a while.. I have had no issues with any of the Lunds, never had a leak either ... re sale has always been good as well.. they are my favorite boat..

    If you want to see what Lund owners think, good and bad, there is a Facebook group

    There are an awful lot of bad reviews for Tracker boats.....

    Yep,the metal is only .065 thick all the way through them.The hull is only .090 (Pro 160). They've been best described as a "floating beer can".
