Im looking to read some opinions on Wilker Galaxy (17 footer) or just Wilker boats. There are few in the Trader for sale and Im interested in the specs. Theres not a lot of information on the internet so I hope someone has a Wilker or has been on one. I own a 5 speed, v-6, 4x4 pick-up truck rated at 4500 lbs tow rate, so I assume my truck could tow a 17-19 fibreglass boat.

Thanks for the insight.

You should have no trouble towing that size boat but the 5 speed can be a little tricky at the ramp.

I fish with my buddy Ron who has a 17' gallaxie wilker those boats where made for lake erie . There nice and deep and take the waves very well just make shure you have a good top on it because you'll get wet under power in rough water.

yes they are good rough water boats going slow ..but like fishnut says get a good top cause they love to plow the waves...at any speed above trolling
