  1. I have a crestliner sabre and its a beautiful boat, well built... I redid all the floors, transom, electric, sunbrella tarps etc... had i seen that boat last year at that price, I would have probably made an offer. If anyone is interested in HUDPUP's boat make an offer I'm sure you will not regret it. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Painting info

    Hi guys, a few months ago i pick up what seemed to be a steal of a deal... i bought a Sabre Crestliner 19 feet... i paid 1500$ with a galvanized trailer and the mercruiser engine and lower unit in great shape, i figured that the bought should be in good shape as well... in the last few months i stripped the whole boat and now im in the midst of rebuilding it, im getting ready to paint it soon and id like to know if i should sand the bottom of it bare and prime and paint, it seems to have a coat of anti-fouling... so i wonder how deep i should sans it before i repaint? Thanks for your help. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Painting info

    Thanks for the info MikeNY but do i need to sand it down to the aluminum or do i need to only get to the original paint? And before re-applying it should i repaint the bottom with primer and paint and then anti-fouling? Thank you. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Crestliner sabre rebuilding

    Hi guys i have a few questions for you all... I just bought a crestliner sabre and i need some advice on a few things. 1st i want to redo the floors with pvc decking boards, has anyone ever used that? 2nd theres a few spots on the transom that have a few spots like corrsion, i hasnt gone through or anything but they are worrying me, should i just weld them in ( filling) and then grind it down and repaint? 3rd thing i want to repaint the bottom( waterline) what should as anti-fouling? Its an aluminum hull. Thanks for your input and help. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Crestliner sabre rebuilding

    Well i was thinking of taking the plywood completely out and putting pvc decking boards.. they are a little heavier than plywood but no rot ever, they sell pvc boards that are hollow in the middle maybe ill see if those are lighter thank you Big Dave & pap Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Crestliner sabre

    Hi guys, i picked up a crestliner sabre 19feet, it presently has a mercruiser mcm165 with an alpha one stern, both in very good shape. I would like to convert my boat to an outboard 150-175hp and i would like to do so by installing an aluminum engine bracket ( Gill engine bracket) that i will probably make myself. Im not 100% sure how to go about it but i do have a good idea of what i need to do. Does anyone have any info or pictures of how to re-enforce the transom? Im thinking of building up the transom with 1/4 inch aluminum plate and from there building up from the stringers about 3feet in, for extra strength i was also thinking of putting 3 feet of aluminum floor( instead of wood) and building that up higher on the transom and then bolting bottom and top part to the bracket. I would love to get some input to see if im doing too little or too much or is there a better/stronger way to do it.

    I need some help

    @Bozeman Bob hi thanks alot for the info, that boat has an 200hp optimax. i dont really know how to ask this but the boat has been out of the water for years, would the surveyor be able to see if the fiberglass has been delaminated or if the hull is safe? I dont feel like having to rip everything apart.

    Thanks alot guys, i read what everyone had to say. If i get a survey done but the boat for example has been sitting in a guys barn for 4 years... how would the survey come out!? i dont know alot about fiberglass boat. Im thinking ill stick with my original idea keep looking for a starcraft islander or something like that.
  24. When you buy a 20 year old boat at 1/10th the price of a new one, youre bound to put some money in it... Anything used for that matter. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
