We test Smokercraft's latest Adventurer 178 FS. New for 2020, the FS Stands for Fish and Ski, but it also has the new VPS hull, which completely changes what we think of a 17-foot fishing boat. VPS stands for "Vertex Performance Strake"... and we take a peek at this new hull out of the water before dropping her in for a proper test. Powered by a Mercury 115, the VPS hull jumps on plane immediately... almost as fast as if she was powered by a 150! Top speed was a respectable of 43 mph, with handling that was most impressive for a riveted boat!
