90 hp 4 stroke

4 posts in this topic

I've been looking for a used boat for a while and have come accross a number of Crestliner Fishhawk 1750's with 90 hp 4 strokes. Do you think this is an under powered set up. I would really like to see more in the 115 hp range but there aren't as many out there.

Ex Crestliner dealer here: We sold quite a few 1750 fish hawks with 90 hp engines. The biggest factor is how are you going to use the boat. If you typically go fishing with yourself and 1 other, you will be fine. If you typically go with 3 others and they all weight in on the upper side of average, you will be wishing you went with the 115. You should be able to find a 1750 with a 115 with out to much trouble if thats what you decide you want.

I have a Fish Hawk 1750 duel council and the 90 hp engine. I use it with my wife and 2 boys who are under 5. Boat goes well with my family and gear on board. I bought the extra seat so I can sit 3 in the rear and 1 in the middle of the councils while in transit. I have no problems plaining out and getting to the part of the lake I am looking for. I fish Winni and Red and it handles the big water just fine. I would think I will need to upgrade when the boys get older to a 115 if I was going to pull skiers/knee boards. I pull a tube now with a 200 pound guy on the back just fine w/ 3 in the boat. I have had it for 2 seasons now. Good luck on your new boat!

I have a 1750 with Dual console and 90 hp Johnson 4 stroke and have been very happy with it. I get 38 mph Gps with full load. It also trolls down to 2mph. I have also driven the same boat with 115 4 stroke and that got about 42mph, and with a 125 2 stroke got 46mph.

Fuel consuption with a 90 4 stroke is very good also.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
