Hey guys, it's been awhile since anyone has posted on here. So, I was just checking in to make sure everyone one was ok. :?

I was thinking the same thing I just registered but I don't see a lot of post I'm assuming this forum is new

Hey jpaus - we are a new site! There are a handful of registered members, but it's up to us to keep the discussions going. I know it will take time, but hopefully by subscribing to forums and getting alerts when people post we can keep it live!

I'm embarrassed to admit that I haven't even had the cover off my 197 yet this year! :( However, that is changing tomorrow. I'm bringing the boat home to replace the raw water hose pump as well as the aerator pump (both went bad last year). I intend to post pics of the process and post them up here in case it could be useful to others in the future.

Thanks for posting guys! Keep it coming!

What year is the 197. I understand they discontinued the 197 for a 202? I was going to pull the trigger on a local 197 but it sold real fast.

My 197 is a 2005 Sportfish.

My 197 Sportfish is a 2016. I believe that's the last year. My understanding is that the 197 and the 202 are the same boat. The only real difference is the leaning post. The live well in it is bigger and the tackle station is on the side.
