    Hey Guys,
    I was thinking about buying a Lowe 175S fishing boat.
    Does anyone know anything about this boat. It comes with a 90hp
    Mercury 4 stroke. Length is 17'3" . Is 16,000. a good price?
    Its a Deep V Hull.
    Thanks Terry

    If the boat will fit you and your style of catfishing, then it's probably a good deal.

    But before you fall in love with the boat, objectively consider how you will fish out of it and whether the boat will allow you to fish the way you want.

    Do you fish from the side or rear of the boat? Anchored in a river, drifting in a lake or some other way? Where will you put the rod holders? Where will you sit? How many others will fish with you and where will they sit? Is the livewell big enough? Are you sure the boat is long enough? (they never are, BTW)

    Every boat is a compromise of some sort - so pick the things you're not willing to compromise and make sure the boat meets those requirements.

    Put the boat name and model in google's search engine and see what comes up. Before I bought my boat I spent a considerable amount of time doing that. You would be surprised the number of comments and articles that are out there on different boats.

    I agree. That is what I had to consider when I got my Pro Team 190. If you get the boat dont let the fish flop all over you deck. They will leave a slime on the carpert.
