1870 Crestliner

Post by Ryan Kummer » February 25th, 2017, 9:56 pm

Picked up a new to me boat last weekend. Might look extremely familiar to some. A lot of fish have come across the deck of this boat. "Only" 2248 hours, I was expecting even more. The previous owner must not have fished enough! :bounce: Compression was great at 190, 200, 190, 200. Outfitted with a 75HP Mercury, SBTII 50 gal, ONIX 10SI, and ipilot MK Terrova. Should work out pretty well. Just need to get it registered and change the impeller and will be ready to go.

The boat has experience. The trailer has a lot of miles going to where the Mercury did not need to go once on the water. Boat is well equipped. I hope & believe you will enjoy the boat as much as I did. The rig has no issues the last time I was in it. (Batteries)? You are in some wonderful waterways for huge striper with mobility to catch them. ENJOY your location & catching machine.

I have the same hull in the 2070 version. It's a fantastic riding boat even in sloppy conditions. Heavily loaded I've skimmed through a foot of water, but I was puckering a little at the time.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

Nice ride! I have the same boat/color hull in a 2070cc. It is a fishing machine and rides well in chop for an aluminum hull.
