Anyone have experience with a newer crestliner, 2070 model?

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

I was at the boat dealer and they have a nice looking crestliner jon boat. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with one. I like how wide it is, all the way through and the open layout. most of the boats I've looked at have such narrow bows and this one is wide. The width seems to give it a very shallow draft.

Anyway, I want a boat that I can run the shallow sloughs for ducks and also have a good fishing platform. My only fear is that if i ever beach this big of boat it would take a rise in river depth to get it unstuck again!

This might sound crazy but I'd like to know if a person can waterski out of a boat like this. When I was much younger we ski'd in high school behind fishing boats and they actually pulled us up and out of the hole very well. I really want to buy one boat to use for everything and I have no use for a deep vee.

Thanks.

:USA1: I bought a 1436 crestliner last year. I have nothing but good things to say about my crestliner. I fish large lakes in Ky. and Tn. and shallow streams. I know it is not the mod. you ask about but I thank crestliner makes a good product. =D>
