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

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
