    Re: Charger 2012 186 (E73bass)

    Right, the 186 still has an older style top cap with molded in consoles.

    The top cap will have to be redesigned to allow for removable consoles.

    Re: Charger 2012 186 (Tommy13)

    Got it----I was totally confused about this 186. I thought it was a NEWLY designed boat, like the re-introduced- redesigned 195 and the ALL NEW 797.

    Then I seen this: http://chargerboats.com/186.htm
    and realized its the same as what you have been describing above and also realized this is the same 186 that has been available for a the last few years now. Its really NOT a NEW model for 2012.

    Re: Charger 2012 186 (E73bass)

    The reason I worded it like that was to get the attention of guys that have the older 186 narrow body design.Most guys have never seen this model.I wish they would of changed the model number to 286 or something,alot of guys still think its the old 186,but it is basically a 396 just shorter and rated for a 175......
    But the price is whats really the eye catcher,32,000 with a 175pro xs is a heck of a deal in todays world of 55,000 dollar bass boats...
    Sorry for the confusion

    That is a great price. And it looks like they shortened the back deck more than the front, when you look at the comparisons to the 396. Great job.

    Does that squared off deck change the smoothness of the ride?

    Gee Matt, where did you get those pictures from?? Just stirring the pot buddy! I saw that one on Craigs list the other day, very nice boat. Seems a little high for the age, but so is everything else.

    I would still like to see the deck dimensions for the new 186

    What a shame...great boat, price, and the size I am looking for. If they came single console you would have sold me. Back to shopping.

    Quick question, I see people are referring to the "old style" 186, and was wondering when the "new" style was introduced? I am looking at buying an 06 and I can't seem to tell a difference from the pics from the "new" style and the one I am looking at. Is that because they are the same style or are the differences I am missing?
