Need replacement windshield for 2006 Crestliner Fishhawk

9 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where to find a replacement windshield for 2006 Crestliner Fishhawk? Valv? Nothing urgent but mine cracked on the bolt hole so it won't be long before it cracks all the way up. It is the tinted plexiglass type.

I know you could get one from crestliner direct in little falls. I bought the whole side console kit from them. You could also order it through a crystal pierz marine.

In the mean time, drill a small hole at the end of the crack to stop it... you'll get by longer that way.

Marine Man, I actually just stumbled across an article on this topic and they also mentioned drilling a 1/16" hole to stop the crack. Cool, thanks.

Yep... just make sure the drill bit diameter is bigger than the crack and you should be in good shape for a long, long time...

I noticed that the rubber washers that came with the windshields were a little flimsy and pushed out when I tightened the screws. I don't think I was overdoing it but I may have been. I am planning to use some gasket making stuff to replace the bad ones. Might help prevent future cracks.

Sutty-

I noticed the same situation with my rubber washers and i am sure i must have overtightened. However the crack only got to about 1" and since have drilled a 1/32" hole to stop the crack. Can't even see the hole since it is so small, hopefully it holds out for awhile.

      X2 for the big minnow net.  I got mine at Wally world or FF for $5.  Bend the wire frame to fit.

      You posted this on Friday so I don't know if by "next Saturday" you meant the 14th or this coming Saturday the 21st.    Osakis might be worth a look. Perhaps the Alex chain (Victoria, Geneva, LeHomme Dieu, Carlos, Darling.

      I agree. Completely careless! My uncle could have died...  It broke though he said the ice was to the hood of the truck. He crawled out the window... The window was level to the ice.... He stood up turned around and he said "All I could see was the cab. I watched it for about ten seconds and then it sank." He is extremely lucky to be alive. He still likes ice fishing but he walks on now.

      Fished 2 1/2 weeks solid for NP, and panfish.  Found lots of bites on larger suckers, but almost all were dropped.  Gold and silver shiners were preferred by all sizes.  Usually get the bigger ones on 4-8 suckers.

      I can't tell if it has a second dorsal fin or not based on those pictures, it could be laid down onto the back. But from the looks of it to me, I think its a Brook Silverside. We sample these in central MN streams and the Mississippi River. If you were in Wright County, definitely within its known range. Just a thought based on the picture
