    Looking for a TV-18

    Hi folks

    I'm looking for an early Tracker Tournament TV-18 if anyone has or knows one for sale.
    I had a 2000 with a 115 Opti and loved that boat.
    I appreciate any help locating another.

    Thanks
    Bruce

    Bruce they are hard to come by. I have a sale pending on mine,
    with mixed emotions. If I was younger, I wouldnt dream of selling.
    I have lost interest due to the carp situation on Barkley and Ky Lake.

    Thanks Larry

    Yes, they are hard to find. Most owners keep them because they are such a good boat. I wish I still had mine.

    I'm in no rush, but figured this would be the best place to find one if there was something out there for sale.

    The other hurdle is to find one in
    realistic driving distance to the seller.
    I made a 1/2 day trip to look at one based on
    description and pictures. It turned out
    to be a dog, that the pics didnt show and
    was short of the seller appraisal. Good luck.

    The buyer came for mine. I told him I would not back out on the deal, but I had rather not sell.
    I left it for him to make the decision. He said anytime I got ready to sell, just give him first option.
    I decided if I couldnt catch a fish, I could at least idle around and look at my graph. LDS

    I don't blame you. I wish I had kept mine

    I've found a few in my area, just not ready to pull the trigger just yet. Waiting on a few things to get done

    We have a 2000 TV-18 we bought new. It's been the ideal boat for what we do.

    Thanks for the pictures. My boat has a plastic insert dry box where you center seat post is located.
    If they had only made this in a pad hull it would have been a perfect boat. LDS

    I've had ideas of making a "pad" for the TV-18. Of course it would take lots of time and trial and error, but I think I could put something off to make it perform a little better.

    If I get another one, I'm definitely going to be studying up on adding some sort of pad.

    You could do that, but you would have to gut the boat
    to weld the pad on. Getting it straight and tapering it
    into the V would take a lot of serious engineering. LDS

    It may not be worth the trouble of a couple MPH's

    Dang Bruce, to bad your about a month late. A friend of mine sold his TV18 right at a month ago. He listed the boat online one day and that evening he got a call from a guy who lived 2 hours away. They set up a time of 8 the next morning to look at it. My friend listed the boat at $9500 and the buyer showed up at 7:30 with cash in hand. No questions asked just handed my buddy the money hooked up the boat and left. Like you he had been looking for a TV18 for quite a while and jumped on my friends boat as soon as he saw the ad.
    I have a 2010 model TV18 and can't imagine ever selling mine as it has more deck space than my old Triton TR186. Not only that but I don't have the need for speed anymore and that boat is impressive. I guess that's why when folks get them they don't like getting rid of them.
