Its hard to say which is best....cause the boats are not comparable as they have completely different hull designs. Each will perform quite differently. Between these 2 boats it would come to one question. How much time will be spent in shallow water?? The g3 will perform much better in shallow water. I like the tunnel and pods.

I have owned 2 yamahas. Never a problem. BUT, I know 2 guys that have blown up SHO 250's still under warranty in the last two months. Yes, they are cursing yamaha.

I would go with the G3. Then I would sell the lower unit on the Yamaha and slap a jet pump on it.

I have owned a G3. I loved the boat and when I had a problem (broken welds that were common with the 1999 models) they gave me a new boat. OUTSTANDING customer service!

I just sold a Lowe 195 Stinger with a 90 hp Optimax a year ago. It was a great fishing boat with lots of room and well laid out, biggest downfall as with many aluminum boats was the rough ride and getting blown around in the wind!

Right on. For me the Lowe would be perfect and the Pro XS is a screamer, but I don't fish shallow rivers.

I have a 2072 G3 CC w/115 2 stroke Yamaha. I pretty much only use this boat for bowfishing. It has been used and abused. No telling how many stumps, rocks and fence posts I have hit with it. Its been a helluva boat for me. It can handle some pretty big/rough water. I originally bought it for duck hunting on the Pamlico Sound/Outer Banks of NC. If mine was to sink tomorrow, I would'nt hesitate to go out and buy another G3!!!!

My only complaint is minimal at best and basically could be applied to all boat manufacturers.. I wish tandem axle trailers were standard on 2072 size boats. No biggie, I put a tandem under it last year.

I like how you think! However a jet pump on that boat wouldn't perform good, if at all. The CCT is a deep tunnel for prop boats. The CCJ has a much shallower tunnel designed for a jet.
