1999 Javelin Venom 17, 1999 Johnson 90hp.

Pros: it's paid for and gets me on the water. The access to the bilge area is the entire width of the rear deck

Cons: its underrated for weight and size and therefore sluggish. Gunnels are higher than on most bass boats and get in the way. Almost no dry storage. Livewells are small and the front one had to be repurposed as tackle storage. Original factory tm was only 23.5lbs of thrust with no constant on ( has been replaced). Console is made for a very short person.

Overall I'd give it 2 out of 5 stars

88 Polarcraft Shadow 17. Johnson 48 Special motor. Motorguide 70# remote control TM. One Lowrance on console, and a small Humminbird on the front. Two 6 gl gas cans with built in floats! 3 batteries! Polarcraft matching trailer! Has tilt and trim, and all the important gauges. At full tilt she’ll top out at 29 mph! Doesn’t have the speed and storage that my Ranger had, but I can fish for days with the same gas that it took the Ranger for one trip. That I can handle! Very easy to pull and just a very nice fishing rig!
