I would really like to do a small center console Mod-V. I was going to get the small alumacraft center console from https://www.AKMccallum.com (the $399.00 one with the seat on the front). I just need to find a boat to put it on??????
The different boats I am considering are the...https://ads.sold.com/moredetails.html?9 ... aytoyslink##
Alumacraft Riveted 1648 MV NCS
Tracker Grizzley 1648 https://www.trackerboats.com/boat/?boat=3304
Alweld 1552 Vss https://www.alweld.com/vee_bottom_econo_jons.html
The Alumacraft is only $2100.00 brand new. It is riveted but its .70 alum. Most riveted boats are only .53 or .63?
The Tracker is $2400.00 but its .100 welded.
The Alweld 1552 is $2,800.00 (local dealer quote) and its .125 alum with 3" ribs. Basically indestructable!
I would really like to have the Alweld but I know I will be over 3G's if I get it cause I will opt for the tunnel hull and the pods on the back. Tracker and Alumacraft have pods as options too but they are about half the cost of the ALwelds.
I thought about a tracker Grizzley 1448 but I think it will be just a little too small. Plus I would really like to go up in HP. Its limited at 25HP just like my 1542 is now.
Here is a pick of the Alweld 1552 rigged pretty much how I want it. The 15ft length is ok and I really like the 52inch wide floor. the 4" difference between the 48" floor and the 52"floor doesn't seem like much but if your adding a Center console it could prove to be huge.
