Great boat, BUT was mislead to
believe it would easily run 60 mph with a 150EFI and a 24 prop - 57 mph
in a chop is all time best; usually 54 mph when fishing ready. Trolling
motor battery spaces won't hold largest trolling motor batteries.
DualPro charger has dies twice. This boat needs hydraulic steering. I
have the only 2002 with a tandem trailer - it was designed and built at
my request. I also trashed the Motorguide for a MinnKota and the stock
electronics for the top end Lowrance w/GPS. Stock 24" prop would
only turn 5300 rpm, replaced with a Turbo Lightning.

Likes: Great holeshot,
spacious casting deck, good deck layout, dual rod organizers are great!!
A lot of boat for the money.
Dislikes: Cheesy pinstripes in hull, boat sits 3" off center
because bunks are welded off, both drywell lids close very hard and
hinges are stressed.

I like the large front deck and the new layout for
2002. The rod box is in the center and allows for storing longer
rods. Also, the bench seat is nice. I have had the boat for
only 7 months, so I haven't found any dislikes yet.

Just purchased my G3 boat and I love it so far.
Haven't used it much yet. Two things I'm concerned about are:
One, the rod locker storage area is not big enough to fit normal size
6'6" rods into?
Another thing is I seem to have problems with the trim switch on the
throttle handle not working
Any knowledge would be appreciated. Thanks.
