Kimo's?

I am partial to the Lund 2010 Pro Guide . Also... I understand that you can special order a 2075 in tiller. version with a 200.
In your neck of the woods, Washington...Yakima Valley Marine is very knowledgable and very professional when it comes to walleye boats.

There are a lot of good options...... Ranger, Warrior, Skeeter, Tuffy, Yar Craft for glass boats, and for aluminum you have Lund, I think the biggest Alumacraft tiller is an 18'.
I've owned a Warrior (17' model) and now own a Skeeter WX2000T, I love the room and ton's of DRY storage of the Skeeter. Only problem with it is you can only go to 115 hp, not a big deal for me, the lake I fish 99% of the time isn't huge anyway. I do have a Mertin Power Steering system on mine, but I hear the Titan system works well up to a 115 also.
Outside of Warrior who has there own remote steering system all the others you could get Merc's big tiller system which I also hear is nice.
There is also the new Backtroller boats, but I don't know if they make a 20'er yet.

YVM would be my only choice don't even want to deal with the Hayden group! looking like the 2010 pro guide is going to be the way i am going . I would like to order the 2075 but can't justify the difference in price

T Mac is correct about the 2075 Pro V tiller. Lund does make a few each year, mainly for pro staff. I believe most come with a 250, and yes, there is a considerable price differnce between that and the Pro Guide.
I agree that the 2010 may be the boat your looking for. After running one all year(150 Verado), I would recommend it to anyone. They are an awesome fishing machine. Only question I would have in ordering another one, is which size Verado to get. I am very pleased with the 150 and not sure if the extra for a 175 or 200 would be worth the $$$

For me if I was going tin no doubt the 2010 Pro Guide and if glass a Ranger 620T both with at least a 175 Verado, most likely a 200.
