    Default What kind of boats?

    I fish out of a 20' alum. Triton, center console, w/ 115 Merc. OptiMax. I was also wondering if anyone has been on a ride in the Xpress 18' Crappie Series boat?

    I looked at buying an Xpress but settled on a 17'7 War Eagle Center console with a 60 merc 4 stoke. Love the boat. Will post you some pics this week.

    I have not seen one in person and it's probably good that I haven't. I would probably sale my 07 18' Express for that one!

    I love the North River. Maybe I can get back that way and get in a little fishing there one day. Does the Tellico have any good fish in it? Back years ago it wasn't all that great. I believe it is better now but I haven't fished it. Have kayaked it though. :D

    i had a xpress h18, great riding boat with the yamaha 150 on it, i needed more storage so i traded it off, i thought it was a great ride for the money. the crappie series is same boat except it has less storage cause they added the extraseat up front, id go with a h18 ans a add a seat ,this way you have 2 upfront with the storage.

    I got one of these for my birthday. I like it so far. It had a few issues. They were immediately resolved. I talked to Paul Ward, owner of War Eagle boats. He took care of it. He did not try to BS me. I still have a couple of issues to be taken care of, but he called and said that he would take care of the issues.

    The boat has lots of room behind the cockpit to stretch your legs.

    Don't blow around in the wind much. Ride is good too.

    But, I also liked my Tracker too. I just ran out of room up front. Never had any trouble with the Tracker.

    I have a 20XD Bullet now, great boat and does everything I wanted it to do, but I think my next boat will be an Xpress (after I get this phase out of my system :D).
