Alumacraft 1756 river runner

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone has any experience with these boats, or any of the welded alumacraft jons. I was offered a good deal on a 1756 mv aw rr with a 90/65 jet, 2" tunnel and am thinking about buying it for the MN river. I was out with my v-hull monday and hit a log hard enough to break my motor off the back of the boat. I was able to retrieve it from the bottom of the river, but am deffinetly thinking it is time for a jet.

I have an Alumacraft MV AW 1650... great boat! Solid and stable, even handles big water exceptionally well. Been used for duck hunting and fishing mix since I bought it in 1998.

I had a 40hp Yamaha jet drive on the boat... until someone decided it would look better on their boat than mine! mad.gif It was bolted to the transom and they stole it right out of my front yard. It was great to run the river with a jet drive. It ran in 6" of water and I never worried about stumps or boulders. Just make sure you do not run the intake into sand... it will wear out the drive impeller pretty quick. Silt posed no problem. Weeds will clog up the intake if you run it into a big mat. You will know immediatley as there will be no thrust.

All in all I think you will love the set-up.

Good Luck!

Ken

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
