Central Florida WMA hog hunting is usually pretty hard. They get hunted hard so they don't really move much during day light. I think the WMAs you mentioned are quota hunts, so you might have to...

A 17 footer should fit with the right trailer. I'd look at used Key West 1720s or Key Largo 176. There's usually a lot of them for sale too.

Given the extremely low slip, I bet its a cheap Solas prop on there now. Their props are always steeper in pitch than what the label says. So your 19 pitch Solas is probably closer to 21 in real...

BRP already has the Rotax engines in Sea-doo, Ski-doo, and Can-AM. The logical next step is to put that engine into their boats - Alumacraft, Manitou, and Quintrex.

That's where I see them going...

Tons of options in that size range. I've seen lots of Action Crafts over there, but they are pretty serious fishing boats. Check out the Sea Fox viper series, I've seen them go pretty shallow for...

Don't assume anything about the fit in your garage, you have to go measure to see if it will fit.

Key largo is definitely a bottom tier boat, but it could be just what you need to get on the...

I gave them a close look when I was shopping. I ended up going bigger because the price wasn't really any different. Any particular reason you like the 176 and not the 186? The 176 is probably the...

Not difficult at all. I've found pontoons to be pretty easy to launch and retrieve.

My only suggestion is to consider the 18 ft pontoon over the 16. you'll find it much more usable, especially...

I don't think this is a 60mph boat, mid 50s is more realistic. Take the 59mph report with a grain of salt, it was probably with an empty gas tank, no gear, and with the current.

What prop did you try?

There’s nothing wrong with your motor. You just have way to much prop pitch. Your WOT rpm should be at least 5500. You need a prop with a 13-15 pitch to get there.

Don’t take it to the shop, save...
