FishHawk 1750 vs. SuperHawk 1700
Have personally owned both boats you are looking at. The Superhawk will be far superior in the end. I fish Poygan and bago alot. You can leave in calm water and end up in 3 footers very quickly. You didn`t mention casting either. This would tell me the same answer. Max out the hp. The Crestliner can take it and you may need it.
I have a 2015 Fishawk 1750 w/Merc 115 four stroke. LOVE IT! It suits my family's needs very well. We've had it on some big water in it's first year, Lake Michigan, Green Lake, Lake Geneva, etc. Never a problem on rough water. Lots of room, plenty of power, very comfortable.
