1/1/2016 Bought this boat from Matt Wicker at Chatlee Boats on Dec. 23 after the motor went out on my old boat and I have had it out 5 times. The 179TRX is a scale down version of the larger TRX line. It handles rough water surprisingly well. Upgraded to the 24 volt trolling motor and had no problem whatsoever sitting on a point fishing in whitecaps. It has enough storage for all my gear plus my partners. The Mercury Four Stroke 115 pushes the boat pretty well (it plains out in just a second with my partner and me (combined weight around 490lbs), plus a full tank of gas, a five fish limit and all our tournament gear. It's quiet and sips gas even fully loaded. I have not found anything about the 179TRX that I don't like. I have fished out of many different brands and sizes on a most of NC's lakes and am not sponsored by anyone so believe me when I say for the money this boat is hard if not impossible to beat.
