Would like to here from an owner of one. I looked on THT and there are posts of problems of all brands if you look hard enough. I looked at the boat show and they seem like a good buy for the price.

I fished in one out of SLP. We fished the Jalapeno rigs and got caught in a bad Tstorm. All in, I was pretty impressed with it. Ride was pretty good and it was faster that a G bay I rode in-

I test drove one at the CC boat show. I was a little suprised at the vibration and shudder at about 18 knots in the slop the bay had to offer that day.

Pro-Kat

Cobia,

I own one and charter it and I've had no problems with it at all. The ride is good honestly dry and exceptional room for fishing. Mine is a 2005 model. There have been some problems on a few of the later models; I know of two that are '06 and they were structural problems but outside of those, everyone I know that owns one likes it.

The normal stuff like macerator pumps, etc go bad but that's normal and not a manufacturer defect. In Matagorda there are 6+ Pro-Kats and all of them get fished often and they are good to go.

Tight Lines,

Capt. Carman

We own a 2660, twin 200 Zukes. Great boat, no complaints. Good insulated boxes now and in floor rod storage. I did hear that a few rigs did have T-top weld issues that I understand were covered by ProKat, and a couple of boats that required additional bonding agent between liner and hull in a few areas in front of console. That is all I have heard and believe were fixed/process changed by factory. We asked these questions before we bought one. Hope to boat some YF's this weekend off of Grand Isle. My brother also owns a 2150 BayKat, 225 Zuke, that he really likes.

My buddy (Houstonboatguy) has the 28'. It is a nice ride, nice large bait well, lots of room for rods, a sh*tter and a good amount of fish box space although he had 2 welds break on his t-top the last time we were out. Dealer is coming to Kirby to fix it so he will be out of comission for a couple of weeks.

Yes they are fixing it but no fishing for 2-3 weeks sux!!!

Bummer on the top welds. I believe you can run it over to your local aluminum fab guy, get it fixed, call Mike Robinson, owner, at the factory and he will reimburse it. I hear he has done that in a few cases when the customer by-passed the dealer who failed to respond quickly. Any idea on cost to fix two welds? My guess maybe $400 to $500. Call Jason at Millenium. Any other issues? No reason this is not a quick in and out - one day for Jason. Running any boat with a loose top risks busting the floor mounts loose (then you have glass issues) as the top wants to 'walk itself off of the boat'. Good luck.

prokat

prosports is pretty good at fixing the t-tops when they know about them

we are doing a repair on a 23 this week.

the H bar on the livewell is usually the problem and we already have

a fix for that.

give me a call if you need my help getting it done
