G3 or Crestliner boat owners?

5 posts in this topic

well guys im researchin my next boat and cant seem to be able to decide between the G3 Angler V170T and the Crestliner FishHawk 1650T. I want to know if anyone has a G3 and what they think of it. I like the crestliner better but it costs about 3000 dollars more.
Any thoughts wold be appreciated, also if any Crestliner owners out there would want to weigh in on this subject that would be great.

BBQ, the $ 3,000 is the reason why.

Crestliner is better, G3 is a new lower end mfg. I know how they build Crestliner, and I would choose this brand without any hesitation.

Go to their respective websites and check them out! If I recall some of the Crestliners have NO WOOD in them. That would be a BIG plus. Thats my .02 worth.

I believe G3 is owned by yamaha, which also now own skeeter boats. considering yamahas commitment for quality, I would consider G3 as a good boat.
they are cheaper, more than likely because they are a newer line of boats, and don't have the long lived crestliner name.
don't get me wrong, crestliner makes a very good product, but for 3000 buckaroos, think it through.
myself I have a skeeter 1850, and am very pleased with this rig.
just remeber, because they are owned by yamaha, these boats are still made in america.
not sure if G3 is made by the skeeter plant in texas or not, but I know its american made. and you probally know about the great outboards that yamaha have.
good luck in your decision, but I would also look at starcraft. they have some nice boats at good prices, if you want a mercury motor.

I dont own one but have fished out of one many times, a friend of mine has one, 17' pro style 115 yam 4st. he fishes quite a few tournys every year and to my knowledge hes the only G3 in the bunch in this area. He seems very happy with it! imo, Its every bit fishable as crestliner. and think of all the accessories you could buy for $3000!

    • Use the hallow points or ballistic tips they rip apart
    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
    •   Just like you being a social media queen, LOL

    • Every one said, with out Double here we may as well leave.   So, Welcome back may be with you here they will come back now! 
    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud.
