I had a Lund 1700 ProAngler with a 50 HP Merc tiller. Loved all the room inside. No tripping over everything. Running rough water was no problem. Great boat. Almost sorry I sold it. Went to a 1600 ProSport with walkthrough wind shield. Lost a lot of space but I don't miss the wind, rain, snow or cold. Bad weather? Put up the bimini! Good luck on your choice.

I run a tournament pro 175 with a 75 honda tiller. I love all the space. Yes you are in the elements more than most boats, but I love backtrolling.I have a good rain suit.
The only problem I have is ,sometimes when driving slow, I have visability issues. The moter trimmed down helps but you still have to be carfull.
Great boat you'll love it.
