See ya on the open water!

2 posts in this topic

I'm officially a first time boat owner! Just picked up my 2000 Crestliner 1750 sportfish with 115 evinrude from Cabelas.

I'm really impressed with Cabelas service! First, I asked a if it had a charger, he thought it did but would double check. So, I put money down on the boat last week. During the past week, I asked a few other questions and again if it had a charger. His reply was "I havnt had a chance to check, but if it doesnt I'll throw in a cabela's pro charger". Well, it didnt have one so they installed one.

Then, today when I went to pick up the boat, the salesman had bad news. The Trolling motor didnt work and the deep cycle batteries were bad. But, they installed a brand new 70# minnkota and 2 brand new deep cycle batteries!

Now I cant wait for the ice to melt!

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
