    All of the models are good , depending on your style of fishing and how much horsepower you want. I would say, just find one with a hull in good shape if your plans are to re- power. The XL will hold more weight due to the 25” transom...however, .The newer four strokes are much lighter than they were 10 years ago. There are a lot of guys on here running the 20” Yamaha SHO motors and are very happy with their V series hulls and the performance. There are a few 22’s around that will run 55 to 60 mph with the SHO’s.

    Prop shop recommendation in South Florida

    Call Marcus at Power Tech....he also is on this forum as Funky Monkey..... why would you not send any PT prop back to the man that owns the shop and builds the PT props ?

    The older V series had a 20” transom ......the XL has a 25” transom......so my opinion is the XL will handle the additional weight of the heavier four strokes better. I have owned both hulls , and I did replace a two stroke 200 hp with a F250 four stroke on a 2400V and the additional weight did change the handling of the boat because the rear end of the boat sat much lower in the water. There were plus’s and minuses.... obviously faster....but negative effect on handling. i now own a 2200XL with a F150 and I’m very happy with this set up because I now spend more time fishing than running WOT in the rivers as I did 15 years ago. With that being said....I went from a 2400V with F250 running 59 mph to a 2200XL with F 150 running 44 mph.

    Capt. Bill......it was certainly a pleasure to meet you and Bill Jr in person down in Sunbury. As a 62 year old Captain myself and spending my entire life on the water on everything from a surfboard to a 65 ft Sportfish boat , the minute I saw you in the 20 ft PF with NC registration numbers, I knew you were an old salt as well as being the Top Shelf that several of us forum members had communicated with. Please don’t hesitate to contact me the next time you come back down in this area. Plan your next visit closer to May and you’ll have more success on the trout and redfish, plus the tripletail will be in the same areas you were fishing. We do have a good fishery here, but it’s more seasonal than Florida waters because the water temp can vary so much depending on if we have a winter or not. Keep in touch ole buddy, JJ

    yamaha keys are universal????

    The key that fit my Year 2000....2400v....with F250.....also will fit my 2009 ...2200XL....F150. I guess they only make a few different cuts and I just happen to get two of the same switches. Damnifino......maybe somebody else can explain.

    WTB Pathfinder 2200 budget $20k

    It’s like looking for and finding the perfect woman, or perfect dog, or perfect shotgun, or perfect Harley.....timing is everything, you combine timing with opportunity and it works out fine. You’ll find your perfect boat.....just be patient and keep looking. If you come across a deal that just seems to good to be true.....that’s probably exactly what it is....to good to be true 🎣 JJ

    yellowtail help!!!??!?

    Add some oatmeal in with the chum , stir it up good and let it sit a while so oatmeal can soak up some oil and then put out small amounts , wait about 15 minutes or so, get out rods and reels and use small pieces of cut bait.....the yellowtails will come, along with other species....some of which are good for more cut bait. Keep the bait pieces small... 1/2” x 1/2”.....have fun !

    I have the 2009 year model...2200XL ....and have never had water in the floor. However, I previous owned a 2000 year model 2400V and when I put the F250 on it.....the floor stayed wet with two adults in the back unless you had plugs in...JJ
