    Only 72? Seems like they may have too much weight forward because 72 is barely breaking things loose for that hull and what its capable of. Build quality has my attention today and I am willing to...

    This is sounding like a "Eureka" moment. Truly a blend of the best each boat had to offer, Champion ride and handling with the Cat layout and build quality.

    Similar experience here. They do sell boats eventually so my guess is they must take a hefty percentage because I rarely see anything for sale that isn't priced over book or misrepresented as...

    Let me say this, My all time favorite ride has been in a Stratos 201 and I've owned 3 for just that reason. Fast, great handling and the smoothest ride in all water conditions, just wish their OAL...

    My 93 and 95 both had single axles but the boats where not as heavy back in the day. My only complaint to the singles was the bounce but I only kept them a couple years.

    Bottom paint is not a cure all and the Gorilla hull will not stop barnacles or scum from growing on it. It needs to be re-applied everyother year but it does prevent crap from growing on the hull. ...

    It doesn't matter because the various lures will ultimately add twist over time so I periodically stretch it and respool it. Basically hook it to a tree and walk it all off, Stretch it with the rod,...

    I concur! I like chasing fish in shallow water so I have a preference for 19.5 to 20' boats. They seem to be just right in all applications except big open water but exercising a little cautious...

    All I have ever heard was the original was better but could not tell you what was so special about it. I had 2 - 26 Raker's, one on an 03 201 and the other on a 95 201. The OAL performance was...

    I would say mid 60's with 200 and low 70 with 225. The 20SS was the update of the original 201 Pro Elite and the new 201 gained 7" in length to the front deck.

    It depends on the weight of the hull and how much tongue weight there is. My 21 foot boat was next to impossible to move by hand but I can grunt my 19'6" Ranger Z519. It moves much easier with...

    My 93 spun a 26 Raker at 6300 rpms and held up all the bow lift I wanted. Could have turned more prop if I wanted. My 95 was all the same but had the pro deck yet did not perform nearly the same. ...
