    I love this advice, I took it to heart when we bought our 22" SXP and went for the Yamaha 175. Glad I did. Cruises fine at a very low RPM and is very quiet. But, when I want to get up and go it does! Thanks

    We have a 2018 22' GSR tri with a 200hp Yamaha and I wouldn't have it any other way!!!
    We Love it. Quick and Smooth.

    I went with a 150 on my TriToon, very glad I didn't stay with the 115. I still wish our boat was faster though!

    Welcome aboard, Nater! How about posting some pictures of your boat.

    150 seems like a great compromise between cost and performance with 3 logs..at the end of the day get out on the lake within your families budget.

    I think this is very important in buying a boat. There is much to be said about “buy your last boat first”. However, like many things, there will always be bigger, better, new features, etc... to tempt us every year or two. And with boats/pontoons, those “new” things are incredibly pricey.

    Thus, buying the boat that meets your needs, and doesn’t over-extend a families budget or financial health is huge. No use having that shinny new boat and over time watching the rest of a families financial health fall apart for something that’s not a necessity.

    Fully agree, I made some choices based upon final budget. Finding a balance is the key. The good news for me, I have nothing to compare it too, so I like what I picked, don't know any better :)

    You will NOT regret the 150!

    A 150 is the sweet spot between power and economy. Perfect!
