Need replacement windshield for 2006 Crestliner Fishhawk

Question

Tim Ellis

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.

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
