    Congratulations, hopefully it will open up a whole new world of fishing. I should get mine this week also. I am hoping for better luck than I have had recently from the bank.

    Nice boat! Make sure you have all your safety equipment and be careful out there. It's more fun to come back in one piece.
    Don't forget the Drain plug! (Voice of experience):crazy::confused2:

    Those old crestliners were good boats and if that is a 1970 60 h/p then you have a good motor if the compression is good. Was it electric shift or is it manuel shift.

    Those were good stable boats in the water.

    All I ask is that you take every safe action you can when you are using it. I have no knowledge of boats but have fun with it,and go catch some "Beasts"!!:smile2:

    It is a 1971 60HP motor. Don't know about the compression but I know it runs real good.

    Now you've done it...Now you will have to get more and bigger rods. More rod holders. a bigger net. Then you have got to have a fancy fish finder. There went all your hard earned money. LOL Good luck John. Maybe I will get to see it in Sept. Go out there and hook that biggen... Rusty

    John that is an electric hydro shift you have there, Be sure you use only Type C fluid in that lower unit and don't listen to people that will tell you that transmission fluid will work. It will for awhile but not for long. Keep a good eye on that fluid because water inside it will destory it.
    You can get the Type C gear oil from any marine store. Costly but designed for that lower unit. If maintained right will give many hours of trouble free service.
    I have a 71 in the 50 h/p range and like it also. When you replace the gear oil be sure to change out the little flat rings that are behind the fill and drain screws.
