Best Riding Walleye Boat in Rough Water
 
Opinions?
How does one prove this out without riding in every stinking boat brand and model.
All on a single afternoon with the whitecaps being the same for each ride.Has anyone been able to do this comparison?
I beleive the longer the boat the better the rough water ride will be.

How much does the seat suspension come into play?
Thanks

I would say that most people on this site would steer towards the bigger walleye boats.

Ranger 621
Skeeter 2100 or the new 2190???
Yar craft 219

etc.

My vote is for the Ranger 621

alot of it depends on your style, load in the boat, motor etc

Any boat will benifit with the use of suspension seats. One of the best additions I put in my boat!

Warrior
 
You should throw the 203 Warrior into this mix and look at one. Very very good in rough water and dryer then any boat I have been in. Wide open floor space has some great advantages as well.

IMO the 2100 rode better then the 621. I have obviously spent a lot of time in the 2100 since I owned one but have rode plenty in the 621 and have also ran against them in the rough water many times. The 2100 is a lot deeper inside as well, being able to sit up higher(seat height) lets one use their legs more instead of every jolt going up your back. Ranger also spears waves and thats no secret. When spending the money on a big boat I am gonna buy what I think is the best ride regardless of brand!! The new 2190 should be sweet.

I have not got the chance to ride in the Yar Craft but they seem to ride pretty good by the looks of it.

Seat suspension does also make a big difference. Not in how the boat rides of course but being able to push it a little harder and not get banged up. I have ran Smooth Moves in my last 2 boats and they will be installed in the new boat as well!!

Brett is right as well. The warrior is a good boat. Dad owned 4 of them back in the day, have yet to get into a new one though.

The largest boat you can afford and trail with the deepest vee hull and decent spray rails on the bottom of the hull as it transitions to the sides- which many times will be a Starcraft.

Tuffy
 
Lets not forget to throw the Tuffy 2060 and 2100 into the mix. Deep insides and still working the glass side of the house. Great dry ride when I have been in them.
The stepchild however Stratos is trying to come up into the fishing world of the Deep V. Made by Ranger, I have not been in the bigger ones but I guess it would be worth a look after my experience with the 1760DV. I will however agree Ranger beats the crap out of your back on a long run and rough water. Look into something that will get you higher so you can use more legs instead of lower back.

I really could not tell you which one is best, but I can tell you the Triton 215 is better than several of the boats suggested.

There you have it Missourivette. Narrowed it down to about 10 boats :)

A pair of smooth moves and a good rough water driver will make any of those those boats ride better than another brand that is lacking one of those two things.

I've driven every boat listed with the exception of a starcraft, they all have their favorite waves, pros, and cons. Feel free to message me if you'd like a comparison on any of those brands.
