Bought a Boat.. Good buy or not?

5 posts in this topic

I've still got 2 weeks to cancel the buy.

I picked up a 2000 crestliner 1750 sport fish with a 2000 Evenrude 115 Ram Ficht motor and a ez-loader trailer. The boat appeared to be in nice shape, for a 7 year old boat. The only marks I noticed on the underside were black streaks that appear to be from the rollers. Didnt notice any scratches at all on the underside, prop or scag. Their service department checked the engine and boat out and gave it a good bill of health. I believe the compression ratings for each cylinder were 130?

It has an Eagle accura locater and a Minkota 65# trust 24volt trolling motor.

Paid 10150 + tax and license.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Wow, nice boat, you did good, funny I have same rig....and you paid a good price with the extras.

Anyway if you need parts for it send me an email (you better not needing any...of course)

Congratulations, you'll like it, I am very happy with mine I've been through plenty of rough stuff and it rides nice and dry.

Nice boat, and good buy!

I have an 1850, and love it. I hope the covers are in good shape?

Hey Kyler: I think you did just fine on your boat deal!! You are going to have a lot of fun this summer. I would take it in for a professional servicing. Check wheel bearing packs on the trailer. Check batteries etc. and do all of this SOON so you're ready to go.

Don't worry whether you did the right thing. Seems to me you did just fine and bought a nice boat package.

This message of support is from a guy who can't even remember how many boats he's owned. shocked.gif

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
