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!

    • Don't worry Chuck......PF has your back.
    • It's just sooooooooo easy.
    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
