Boat Reviews By Owners
1995 -- 16' 5" SMOKERCRAFT
Cockpit: Side Console. Made for fishing with built in live well. wide open boat. Light.
Cabin: No cabin. no bench seats so easy to walk around wood floor.
Construction: Aluminum. I believe Sylvan made the same boat the same year and Sylvan and SmokerCraft are in the same town in Indiana.
Handling: Kind of a flat bottom for stability, can feel a little squirely at 25 MPH cutting through other boats wakes. But it makes my kids giggle.
Engine Room: For My year - an unusual year for the ProMag, Max HP is 50 and Max people is 5. I run a 1997 40 HP 4 cyl fuel and oil injected Mercury. Its a fine Motor.
General Comments: I use it as a people transport. A Shuttle. I run people to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes from the public access. Most local launches are just over a foot deep so lightness is critical. I also pull kids tubing. Fishing ? The only thing we catch is a buzz from the beer on weekends. My ProMag seems to be an unusual year with prior years and post years being heavier boats.
