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!

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
