Title: Low starboard stern
Post by: bbenoit on March 15, 2021, 06:15:20 PM
Hello, Iím a new bass boat owner. I have a 2015 Bass Tracker Pro Team 190TX with a Mercury Optimax 115 hp motor. Iíve noticed that when Iím in the water fishing  and go near the edge of the starboard rear, the edge of the boat is dangerously close to the water line. Any ideas? Thanks

It's just how the Trackers sit. I have a 2009 190TX and same thing lol. If you shut down too quick you'll def take water over the stern.

I've thoroughly enjoyed the boat though the last almost 9 years(bought it used).

Rearranging your gear so more of the weight may help but they do sit bow high.

Correct. I added 2 8' Talons and a 3rd battery so mine is lower than before! I do try and keep all my other gear up front and evenly spread out.

I put all my gear in the front of the boat. No storage in the back LOL. Isn't the gas tank on that side of the boat in the rear?
