Nice rig for sure.

Water temps will rise a bit over next week with rain and some warmer weather, but we are behind last year for sure.

37.5 degrees and another cold snap coming, any luck when u were out jaya?

winters really holding on........

Frankie, I 100% recommend legend, i had it out late last year for my last few day trips, the xtr is a great boat......i went with the 115 hp to save weight for the 6 hp kicker i just put on ........u can go as high as 150hp but dont know about a kicker then.... ,,,,if you get the 20ft u can do both for sure......40 mph on the water with the 115 feels very fast.....i like the 18 because it fits in my garage....
all the rigging fits well......with the canopy up u can still fight fish off the riggers while standing, im 6 ft tall and can stand and walk around with the full cover up.....the cusions in the bow are removable to a casting platform and foot pedaled and key fob controlled electric trollng motor.
rear bench fold into another casting platform...

couple notes/ extras to consider, a travel cover is 2000$, but a new windsheild i was told is 4000 $ travel cover protects from hwy rocks and debris that will crack that windsheild

the transom saver doesnt come standard but is a must....the one legend installs is better then anything else i've seen....

storage is good ,2 nice live wells are standard, those cusions are extra u don't have to get them.......i like a spot for the pretty flowers!!!! lol

nav lights standard

wireless electric trolling motor is standard

led lighting lines the floor, radio and speakers aux input for music all standard

full weather cover/bimini standard

ok helix 5 sonar standard /navionics chip extra

vhf radio/antenna, down riggers, kicker is extra

collapsible trailer neck (fits in garage) standard


great boat, if u can do the electrical connection of any extras yourself u can save a ton of money.....30amp inline fuse everything and ur good to go......if u need wiring help or have questions pm me

Im gonna post some updated pics on this thread soon........

I have a tip for you to save your travel cover.
Get some pool noodles and cut a slit on one side, place them on the top of the windshield.
This will stop wear on the travel cover. Believe me I wish I new this tip. Iíve had my Legend for 8 years now. Love it!
Cheers!
