    The New Lund 1825 Pro Guide I ordered is from what i have been told a Great back troller.
    Hard corner to hold the water when back trolling . Tiller motor for boat control.
    Deep V in front to hold the boat on course. Also the flat back transom catches the water and allows the motor to hold the boat on line.
    Not a lot of info but some.

    Thanks,
    Am trying to buy a used boat and am seeing several with the designation.
    Sounds like good features.Are there any drawbacks with it as far as you know?

    I am just checking classifieds and the net for a heavier 14' v that will be fairly stable in the river and bays in Florida when the wind is not up too much.One of the boats that I am to look at is a Sylvan.Will try to find your picture.
