My ProGator is a 1999 178V. Had it almost 2 years now and haven't had any problems with the boat or motor, that wasn't my fault. It has a 150 Johnson Fast Strike on the back. I run a PowerTech 3 blade 23* stainless prop. She has a hole shot that is that is to die for. I think I'd win most races if they were only 100 yrds.
At 5200 RPM, by myself, she GPS's at 63 MPH. And, just like most everyone else has stated, my gator doesn't mind the rough water and I stay dry. The one thing I did was put a taller wind screen on it.
It's white and green. My truck is a white 1500 chevy with a big UB sticker in the back window.
Nice to see a board for us now, so hello everyone.
