    Sent to us by Dean Marshall, manager at Skeeter Boat Center in Chippewa Falls WI. Hopefully Dean will keep sending us tid-bits from the meeting.

    Here’s his first video of the MX 2025 (and a cameo by his thumb ) Do note Dean refers to the boat as the “2050 MX.” It is most definitely the MX 2025. My guess is if a guy talks boat models for 2 days straight the models start to get jumbled a bit.

    Note – these videos will download to your hard drive after your click on the link so be patient. It might take a few seconds to transfer.

    In the first 2190 video, the boat seems to jump right onto plane!

    I get the feeling Dean wasn’t ready and by the time he was it was all over.

    Word from Dean is the 2190 ran 58 – 59 MPH in 95 degree heat down in TX. That’s scorching fast for a boat that size. He described the ride as “Escalade.” Coming from an old Chevrolet truck salesman I believe that means the engineers at Skeeter got it right.

    Do most Escalades come standard with tinted windshields? Maybe we could put “Spinners” on the trailer?

    I am glad Dean wiped his fingers before taking the video, didn’t want to get chocolate on the lens very nice looking boats.

    I think my future in video work will be short term at best.

    However holding a cell phone steady at 60 is fun. Hole shots on both boats were awesome!

    Chris, sounds fun adding some custom “bling” to your rig, clockwise counter, or a set of each for the spinners?

    With the front of the 2190 dipping down, is it still high enough so I dont wash the floor every wave when trolling like a Ranger

    Hard to know for sure until we test them ourselves but I’m seeing a very different hull design than a Ranger. More chest and deeper hull at the front third. That said what will make the difference is the way the boat sits at trolling speeds. If it sits level/flat with weight distribution towards the front, we’ll see water over the bow. I know many of us stressed that excessive water over the front was not acceptable. What we’ll want to see is that weight distributed towards the rear just a little bit so the bow will rise up and over waves versus through them at trolling speeds.

    Only one way to know for sure… a 2MPH troll into a stiff breeze and 3′ – 4′ waves should do it.

    Here’s a newly submitted photo taken at the dealer meeting that shows the bow and hull of the WX 2190. It definitely IS NOT shaped like other boats on the market that have a tendency to scoop waves.
