Fish and Ski Boat: 2013 Crestliner 1750 Super Hawk DC
For the fisherman with family members who want to enjoy more on-water action than simply wetting a line, this new 17-footer from Crestliner is worth a look. The 1750 Super Hawk DC is a member of the new fish-and-ski line for 2013 from Crestliner, which also offers 1650, 1850 and 1950 models, featuring a redesigned bow area that can morph into a comfortable lounging area, upgrades in the cockpit and stern, and an all-new optional anchor system.
Other features include no fewer than seven pedestal-seat bases to place anglers in a position to catch fish, a helm seat glider, folding boarding ladder, center in-floor locking rod/ski/wakeboard storage, open port-side rod storage with tubes, aerated 22-gallon aft livewell with divider, wrap-around sport windshield and no-feedback steering.
Underfoot, the keel of the 1750 is constructed using a durable, interlocking seam construction method, using high-grade aluminum extrusions with tongue-and-groove channels offering an extruded full-length keel and continuous seam welds.
The Super Hawk is a rugged, adaptable and comfortable fishing and watersports boat from one of the most respected boat manufacturers in the business. Priced with 115-horsepower Mercury outboard and trailer. www.crestliner.com

Aluminum Fishing Boat: Alumacraft PF 175
A great basic fishing boat that is stable, easy to trailer and launch, and fuel-efficient to boot, Alumacraft’s affordable PF 175 package is a tough rig to beat. The boat comes with two pedestal seats, three pedestal bases and seating for four in the cockpit.
Anglers will appreciate a pair of 20-gallon livewells, lockable rod storage, and the fact that the package comes rigged and ready to go with a fishfinder on the dash, a Minn Kota electric trolling motor on the bow, a matching trailer under the hull and your choice of Mercury, Honda, Evinrude or Yamaha outboard on the transom.
Like all Alumacraft models, the all-welded 175 is constructed from a single piece of heavy gauge, top quality, 5052 marine-grade aluminum that eliminates rivets and welds. Other standard features found aboard the PF model for 2013 include: dual lockable rod storage, dual aerated livewells, under-seat storage, a windscreen, stowable running lights, bilge pump and built-in fuel tank. Priced with 50-horsepower Yamaha outboard. www.alumacraft.com
