Boat Reviews By Owners
1983 -- 20' 6" SPORTCRAFT
Model: 200cc(center console)FISHERMAN
Cockpit: visibility is excellent.great fishing boat, good fuel capacity and range(70 gal.)
Cabin: storage under helm in console, two livewells (aereated) keep the bait alive like bob hope.
Construction: extremely well biult. VERY heavy for its size-4000 lbs. stringers are huge, floor and entire hull is solid as a rock! rides like a heavy boat, goes 46.2 wide open on old 79 crossflow johnson 175 v-6, 141/2 by 19 prop
Handling: handles good, crossing another boats wake, it tends to chine walk a little, but you expect that from a modified v hull that has a BONE dry ride.love this boat,went THROUGH a waterspout in it with my son 4th of july weekend in the gulf of mexico.absolutely terrifying,backed her way down to 10 mph,i wouldnt be writing this if this was a light crappy new plastic princess- you can keep your damn foam hulls, old salts know better-weight=stability=SAFETY
Engine Room: outboard powered,water splashes up if you slow down too quickly,but runs awesome on my 1979 johnson 175 (200hp carb jets)these old crossflows were the best for reliability, and 175-235hp
were exact same except for reed cages and carb jets.
General Comments: love my boat but after that unescapable summer storm came at us, im trading for a bigger boat with a cabin! bimini top not much for protection from 80 mph hailstones and waves.
