Sold****1998 Crestliner 1650 Fish Hawk w/ 60 HP Mercury Tiller


Recommended Posts

1998 Crestliner 1650 Fish Hawk – 60 HP Mercury Tiller

This is a boat I truly hate to part with. It’s perfect for the smaller lakes but big enough to battle 4 footers on Mille Lacs. It’s really a boat that can live the best of both worlds. However, I was presented an opportunity to upgrade and snatched it up before my pocket book knew what hit it.

Here’s the specs:

o 1998 Crestliner 1650 Fish Hawk

o 1998 60 HP Mercury Tiller – 2 Stroke, Power Trim

o Foot Trim

o Transom Bar

o 1998 Shorelandr 2000# Roller Trailer, new bearings in 2005

o Snap On Cover

o Minnkota AT Bow Mount 48lb. Thrust – 24 Volt

o Two Deep Cycle Batteries and one Starting Battery

o Additional Boat Seat

o Zercom Clearwater Classic Flasher

o Garmin 126 GPS

o Massive Front Livewell

o Baitwell

o 96” Rod Locker

Price: $6800

And, maybe the best feature of all, it already has a FishingMinnesota.com decal on the back. I can be contacted at bornofice at yahoodotcom (you’ll have to convert that into a real email address).

No "catches" to speak of. I need the money for the new boat. Actually, I'm paying for the new boat tomorrow. ooo.gif

What is the boat rated for in horsepower? Can it handle a bigger motor?

The boat is rated for a 60. So, it's at max horsepower.

It will run about 35mph with just me in it.

I'll roll her outside this afternoon and get some better pictures and send them out to all who have inquired.

I have sent additional pictures to everyone that has requested them here or via email. If you did not receive the pictures, let me know and I will try again.

Man, I am glad I had a chance to clean this boat up before the snow flew. It's a little cool to wash her in the driveway today. grin.gif

I revised the pictures and made some edits based on questions that have been asked by those that have contacted me. Thanks to everyone that has shown interest so far.

I can't believe that has not sold! Have you seen what this boat would go for new? That is the perfect sized boat! At home on ANY lake!

The same package new (2005 left overs) right now is about $14,000. That's with no electronics, no batteries, the same 2-stroke engine (if you can even find one). With the 60HP 4 stroke, Crestliner's web site lists the MSRP at $17,000. Wow!

And, Cory, you're right. This really is the perfect size boat. I have ran 4 footers on Vermilion and Mille Lacs with this boat. It's not a dry ride, but you're never nervous about doing it. I've also launched this boat on tiny lakes with accesses that are so shallow that whole boat is out of the water when I launch it. You can tow this rig easily with a V-6. The whole package is less than 2000lbs.

I have no idea why I'm getting a new boat, this boat is perfect for the way I like to fish. I wonder if the dealership will give me my money back on the new one. blush.gif

I tried to send an email response to a Jerry Lee today, but it has been rejected by his mail server. Jerry, if you have an alternate email, please send it to me.

Jerry,

I tried it; it bounced back. Actually, that's the same email address I tried before. Do you have another?

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?
    • MikeG3Boat
      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
