Thinking about buying a Bass Tracker, need some advice from those that own one. Pro Team 185. 1999 model with a 90 Horse. Looks good, driving it tommorrow. Does anyone have one or a thought? Love to hear it.

That sounds exactly like the boat I own. Mine is a 99 model, Pro Team 185 with a Mercury 90 on the back. I got mine new and haven't looked back. If you are looking for a boat that will throw you back in your seat and run around 50-70 mph, then this is not the boat for you.



If you are looking for a well built reliable boat with a lot of room to fish, tons of storage space and surprisingly steady on rough water, then this is the boat for you. Depending on the load limit and fuel in the tank, you can expect anywhere from 40-52 mph top end speed. I know mine will run around 45-47 with the boat loaded and another fisherman and myself.



The revolutionary hull is unreal on this boat. I have had more than a few people tell me that they would not know the difference if they had thier eyes closed between riding in my boat as opposed to a fiberglass model. 2 have told me that this boat rides better than some of the fiberglass boats they have rode in before.



So yes, I would consider it. I would look at it and depending on how well kept up it is and the price it could very well be a boat you will have years of enjoyment in. If there is anything else I can help you with, just let me know.

I'm on my 2nd tracker, my current one is a 98 pro team 180 with the 90 hp and love it, I just wish the revolution hull had been one year earlier.

I know of an older gentleman that has a statuss with a 150. Suppose to be in excellent condition from what my friend says. Still has the break in oil. I don't feel comfortable in a fiberglass cause I fish the river so much. Get his number for you if you want it.

only thing about aluminum tracker's they are a little bit un stable when you walk back and forth on the deck.




Boone appearently you haven't been in the V-18 tourny tracker. It doesn't have that, a very stable boat. But it's a deep V boat. The ones your refering to have a flat bottom and a little on the wobbly side.
