First Boat: Lund Angler 1700 w/ Yamaha 115 Four Stroke

8 posts in this topic

Well after a long time of lurking in this forum I finally decided to register. The information on this forum has been excellent and help me to decide on the purchase of a new boat (my first) which will be ready for pick up in two weeks.

The boat details: 2003 Lund 1700 Angler SS with 2003 Yamaha Four-Stroke 115 HP motor. I purchased this boat at Crystal-Pierz Marine in St. Cloud and got all the bells and whistles with this one including: Galvanized Trailer, Pro-Ride/Air-Ride Seats, Bow mounted 55lb Minnkota trolling motor, Custom Cover, Deep Cycle Battery, On-board charger, Raytheon 365 Locator, Sony AM/FM CD Player, Hustler Prop. The boat was originally packaged with a 90 HP 2-stroke yamaha and I am very happy that I upgraded to the F115.

I am really looking forward to getting out for the boats maiden voyage. I purchased a fishing liscense for my wife this year and purchasing the boat will give us the opportunity to spend a little bit more time together on the weekends as I fish about 40 weekends out of the year. My father is also very enthusiatic about the purchase as we have fished out of his Lund Rebel 16 for the past 15 years, and while he will not be discarding his boat, this boat will give us the opportunity to fish waters and conditions not suited for the rebel.

Can't wait...

Awesome! Picked up a new Lund Mr. Pike 17 a couple years ago with a 125 two stroke merc. Absolutely love it. Getting the itch this spring to upgrade to the ProV with a 115 four stroke. Just not sure yet.

Good Fishing!

As a forethought, I thought I would pose this question before I pick up the boat.

Is there anything outside of reading all the manufacturers documentation that I should consider before taking the boat out for its maiden voyage?

Also, I just thought I would make mention to the pricing I received. My wife and I went in with a Out-The-Door price in mind and we received it after some consideration. We dealt with Woody at Crystal-Pierz and we were very satisfied with the sales service and communication that we recieved from them.

Thanks in advance for any replys! If Scott Steil is out there...I say hello you may remember me from the RS Golf Course.

Take care!

John

Sunny I'm jealous, I'm waiting for my new boat...and waiting...put a crappie in the livewell for me, I'd take just the motor manual to read at this point. Good luck breaking it in.

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?
    • many of my 2nd graders have more frontal cortex development........
    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
