I'm looking for a 17 foot deep V boat for some Lake Erie near shore fishing, Canadian Lakes, and some water ski'ing. The Lowe Fishing Machine 175 DC with walkthru windshield and 90 hp Merc is on my short list. Anyone care to comment on the quality of Lowe all-welded boats? http://www.loweboats.com/Page.aspx/pageId/810/pmId/111619/Lowe-Fishing-Machine-175DC.aspx I'm comparing the Lowe to Tracker Pro Guide V-17 WT, Lund Classic 1775, and Crestliner Sport Angler 1750. I trust Lund and Crestliner for quality. I assume Tracker is average qaulity. It all comes down to money, because the Tracker and Lowe are several throusand less than Crestliner or Lund. I have three kids in college plus a few other things to spend money on if you know what I mean. Any feedback on Lowe boats would be appreciated!
