  • Crestliner Conversion

    Greetings and Salutations!
    I've been lurking awhile and have learned a lot.
    Now for my first question.

    I've been looking for an open bow 18-20 foot Crestliner of 1980-1990 vintage.
    I've come across several closed bows and cuddy cabins in that range.
    The interiors were beat up but the boat and power seem serviceable.

    Question:
    Is the closed bow or cabin structure part of the hull structure?
    In other words, can I remove these and create an open boat without compromising the strength of the boat?
    I don't want the hull collapsing on me!

    I currently fish saltwater bays in NJ (in a 16' Discover side console), and I'm looking for something to go on-shore.
Working...
