    Wonder why the type of trailer would have anything to do,with popping rivets? My old Lund is on a bunk and is 18 years old with tens of thousands of miles on it, some really rough roads included, and never popped a rivet yet, anyway.

    Allen states power loading? I dont know why that would have anything to do with it --- easier on the bottom then trying to crank a boat up a rollers as you generally use your trim. I suppose if one came in to the rollers hot or on a big wave - then i may agree. As far as the rollers themselves - yes they are harder then a bunk as the weight is all put in one place. Road miles are tough on boats --- bunk or roller - including glass boats.

    Don't be afraid to look at G3 either, Owned by yamaha, have yet to see one fitted with a Merc or E-tec. My best friend and tournament partner owns a V177 that is a wave eating machine. When i was in the market for my new boat, had I not been so stuck on Glass, I would own a G3 Aluminum. I really like how deep the boat is as its very similar to my Lund GL. Storage is pretty damn good although the built in rod storage leaves a lot to be desired. Handles the big LSAK waves quite well and you have to have a lard ass like me in the bow of the boat to take one over. North Country Marine in Garrison is the only dealer I am aware of.
    That being said, unless you have a 20'+ boat, you are not getting on top of the waves on LSAK so expect to have to back the hammer off a bit to run in those 4 footers.

    I have no connection to this boat whatsoever but of the 1st 25 or so @ the top of the Walleye Central classifieds I thought it was the top of the heap in value for $$. $36K for a boat that appears to be water-ready w/under 100hrs.

    Not sure what you're budget is or if you're set on new vs. used but it's a "buyer's market" from now until March or so.

    I think I'd have to move somewhere that a person needed a jet-drive before I'd go back to an AL hull.

    When in trouble or in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout.

    If my statements from Morgan Stanley Wells Fargo Edward jones and couple direct m funds this month are any indication of where we're going next fall winter will be boat buying at it's best.
