Lund 1660 Classic SS vs Lund 1625 Rebel SS

4 posts in this topic

Anyone have any thoughts or experiences with these two boats? I am looking at a new boat replacement. I really like the option on the Classic for aft seating that's hinged. Two rear fixed seats when up, or flip down to give large rear casting deck plus access to battery compartments. Makes the 16 footer able to seat 2 adults and 2 kids on occasion. Does anyone know if this option can be added to the 1625 Rebel? Their hulls are almost identical. Guess I can find out from the dealers this weekend if no one knows.

I like the layout of the Rebel a little better as the storage options seem nice. Livewell on bow and deeper bow storage.

Also any opinions out there on 75 Merc vs 75 Yamaha (both 4S EFI)? Doesn't sound like much to switch to Yamaha. Any top speed info for either model with these boats? Thanks in advance

I purchased the 1660 Classic last year and have no regrets. The aft hinged seating is a great option also. Very nice riding boat and well set up. I would without a doubt purchase this boat again.

I have a 50 4 stroke merc and with myself in the boat top end is around 34. If you are going to be running with three or more I would bump it up 20 or so HP.

Thanks Harvey Lee. 34 is some pretty respectable top end from a 50 horse. Must be an efficient hull design. Unless price gets to be excessive, I'll only be looking at the 75's since we would also like to pull skiiers and tubers as our kids get a few years older. There was a 60 horse Etec out in western MN pre-rigged that might also work; it weighs only 220 lbs. The Etec 75 was 320, so about 80% the weight of the Merc.

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.
