I am going to run the new Skeeter WX2000T 20' Tiller this weekend on Winnie. I will let you know how it does. We are also going to have the new WX1950 and the SL1900 fish and ski on a walleye boat hull. They will be available for demo's if you want to stop by Nodak or Denny's. This is part of the MTT tournament.
We are waiting your reply... I am wondering what your impressions were of this rig....
I have been in the boat a couple times and I am totally impressed with the layout and handling. I have not road in it on rough water but from the people I know whom have they were also impressed.
The 115 seems to handle this boat amazingly well. Quick to plane and about 2.2 forward trolling and 1.2 backtrolling on flat water. This is with a 13 * 17 Prop, it could possibly have a 18 pitch prop as I have seen it get up to the rev limiter with the 17 prop. What I like about the 115 is that you will be able to backtroll or forward troll without any other tricks to slow you down.

We did not have alot of waves but just enough to tell whether or not the boat would be worth a darn or not. It was awsome! If you are even thinking about a big tiller you have to try this one. The layout was incredible. The handling was better than I expected. With me only in the boat(285 lbs. check out my picture) I ran 40 mph into the wind with the F115. It did hit the rev limiter so yes a 19 pitch prop should be tried. It tracked well and was nice and dry when I shut down from on plane. I am not a real big tiller guy but after that ride I may look differently next year. Anybody else there that has any feedback?

A 17 pitch prop?
That seems a little on the light side for a 20 foot boat with a 115 4 stroke.
With a 19 pitch holeshot wouldnt be as good and trolling speeds would be faster.
