Boat Reviews By Owners
1989 -- 15' 0" STARLINE
Model: Sierra 150
Cockpit: The cockpit on this boat is relatively small. Mainly because it is only a 15' boat. You can't really stretch out your legs, but it is still comfortable non the less.
Cabin: This boat does not have a cabin. Rather, it has comfortable seats in the bow with storage underneath.
Construction: Solid as a rock. This boat has been over some rough waters and has held up beautifully. The only problems that I have encountered were that the screws holding in the braces for the front windows came a bit loose. Nothing a little tightening didn't fix
Handling: The boat is very powerful for its size, and it handles like any 15' boat would handle in rough water (not very good). On smooth to choppy waters, it handles great. When it is planed up, it handles like it had power steering.
Engine Room: This is an I/O with a Mercruiser 2.4L 4 cylinder engine. It is a 153 cubic inch motor that is rated at 120 hp. I bought the boat from a complete moron that "tried" to fix the carburator himself, but failed miserably. I purchased a brand new carb for about $400. The old one had been taken apart about 20 times it seemed and never put back together right (missing pieces). After putting in the new carb, she purred like a kitten. Great gas mileage as well. The manifold gasket leaks a little bit of water out of the jacket, but the bilge takes all of that out.
General Comments: I use this boat for anything from fishing to skiing to cruising. This boat has never seen salt water and probably never will. She stays in Lake Lanier (GA) and Lake Chattuge (NC).
