After a year of researching, I just received my 2011 170 SP. I'm in the Chicago burbs. I purchased the boat from Jetts Marine...850 miles away. I'm an inland freshwater fisherman, and am glad to see that they are making a tiller model. If this boat can "walk the talk" it will be great! I know the 170 hull has been around for many years.I'm a very avid angler, my 5 years of use is like a lifetime of use for the average angler. I'm counting on this boat being "tough"! I'll be making some mods (adding a lockable rod storage box) I'll post pics when it's done. I'll also be using the boat for a fishing show I'm producing that will air in Jan of 2013 in the midwest.
I purchased the DVD from this site. I was expecting more like a home made type of a DVD. I was very impressed! The quality and production was great! Thanks NC Angler, Great job!
Hey Shell, couldn't help but notice that you are from the Chicago area.... so am I. I purchased a used 17cc last year, but only use it at my summer home in Maine. I couldn't be happier with the boat, I used it almost every day last summer and can't wait to put it in the water again this June. I really think you will be happy with the 17, have a great summer of fishing!
