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.
