PolarKraft MV 1751

Post by maintenanceguy »

I already posted some photos of my fix-it-up project of my older PolarKraft MV 1751 here viewtopic.php?f=21&t=46971 but thought I'd post a couple of photos in the pic-of-your-boat thread too.

I believe it's from the late 80's or early 90's. I haven't found much information tying dates to HIN numbers for the older PolarKrafts. It has a 40hp outboard and, after my motor died on me once, I added a 5hp kicker as my emergency get-me-back motor.

We use it for fishing, crabbing, and exploring the tide water salt marshes in my area. We've made the 11 mile run out to the bay a couple of times but it's not a bay boat. We just enjoy the trip out and back.

Hey Supper, that is a nice fat looking rainbow. Good way to break in the new boat! Nice looking day on the water too.

Pic of the inside of my Smoker craft. It's a nice boat for grandkids to fish out of plenty of room.

Hello All, I just joined after browsing the modification section. Great site! I recently sold off my 12' Meyer to up-size to a 14'er. I got what I am told is a 1973 Starcraft. It's in pretty decent shape and I have quite a few mods in mind for it but I seriously doubt the age of my tin boat. I have seen pics of other 1973's and they all seem to have aluminum bench seats in them whereas mine has the old wood seats.
Looks like it's in good shape for being a 73. The hull looks like a twin to mine, a 98 starcraft 12ft. I noticed that too, a lot of starcrafts have the wooden seats like yours. It may be a blessing in disguise for you. More storage or extra room for gear, plus you can always replace them fairly easy and even color match the wood to your liking or other things on the boat like oars etc.
