Crestliner Fuel Fill Problem

3 posts in this topic

Hi all, I need some help. My Step-Dad is having a problem when he is filling up his Crestliner 1650 Fishhawk with gas. He says that he has to fill the tank very, very slowly or it "spits" out back at him. It sounds like a venting issue to me but where would the vent be located so that it can be filled at full gas pump pressure like I can on my boat?

I have the same boat and it took me awhile to figure it out. The vent is right near the top of the fill hole. THe solution is having a funnel that gets past the vent and goes directly into the tank. I bought a simple funnel that has an angled spout that goes into the tank and it solved the problem entirely. If filling up at the pump, just make sure to put the spout as far into the tank as possible and it will work.

Wow, thanks for the speedy detailed help! I think this will save my Step-Dad's sanity after buying a new boat.

Again, Thank you!

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
