SUBJECT: # 178: Crestliner-CVX 182

Submitted by larry--southern idiana (205.188.197.181) from INDIANA on 10/8/2000 8:38:00 AM

Hull specifications (length, beam, weight): 2000 model Aluminum-18'-2"-----95" beam---1300lbs

Motor specifications: 150 efi mercury--2000 model

IMHO the fishability of this boat: real good

IMHO the ride of this boat: Real good for a boat of this size. The ride is not quite as good as a big fiberglass rig in real rough water, but over all 2 to 3 foot waves are no problem.

IMHO the storage space of this boat: alot of storage everywhere

IMHO the stability of this boat: Very good even with 4 people in it.

IMHO the dependability of this boat: All welded hull with 20 year warranty. Time will tell. Crestliner makes a very good boat. The paint finish is very good. The finish on the inside is also very good.

IMHO the dealer service for this boat: very good

IMHO the factory service for this boat: Have not had any yet..Crestliner says they don't do much warranty work. Their boats are done right from the start.

Comments or observations you want to include: This boat with the 150 efi mercury with stainless prop has a hole shot that will pin you back in the seat. Top end is between 55 to 62 mph..The boat is stable to drive..Mine is always loaded with 35 gallons of gas, 3 batteries, 65 qt cooled full of food and drinks..The boat will jump out of the hole at full throttle and hit 50 to 55 probably quicker than most boats this size..I have made believers out of more than a few..This boat suits me very good for the kind of fishing i do..I have a minn kota 24 volt 65 lb thrust trolling motor on the front..It pulls this boat real easy, even in high winds..

    55 to 62? Gee you told us 65 last week!!! your boat probably won't go over 50!!! It isn't made for SPEED, it is made for crappie fishing!!! Your boat will get slower as time goes on because of the water that all the wood will absorb over time. Crestliner owners, you are the only one!!
