    2018 Crestliner 1850 Fish Hawk

    I posted this in the Tin Form, but was suggested to post it in here as well.

    My new rig, a 2018 Crestliner 1850 Fish Hawk. Its powered by a 150 Mercury 4 Stroke along with a 9.9 Pro Kicker. Electronics include a Minn Kota Ultrex 80 (60") Ipilot Link and a Humminbird Solix 12 Mega. Some of the options I chose were vinyl flooring, the flip down rear seats for a larger casting deck, galvanized tandem trailer, and of course the Mad Fish Graphics (I was concerned at first that it might be cheesy, but I really do like it).

    I've taken it out to 5 times so far, to local lakes Pine Flat Lake and San Luis Reservoir. It has handled very well in choppy waters (1-2.5 footers), is stable for 4 angles to walk around while fishing with no issues, has ample room, and drafts low enough not to be bothered too much by wind. So far, the boat has been a great tool for multiple types of fishing (trolling for striped bass and pitching/flipping for bass). Its highest speed to date is 48mph, but I did not trim the motor much as I am still breaking in the motor some.

    I see that ladder makes adding a Talon or Power pole trouble.
