Hi everyone,

I went to look at a 93 crestliner eagle 23' over the weekend and like it alot but I have some questions about that type of boat. Does anyone here have a similar boat, or is knowledgeable about them? Please pm me if you don't mind sharing some information.

Thanks

Mike

crestliner Nordic. walk around with cuddy.. Just bought it in November, Repainted it.

I have never even had it wet yet.. Actually never have heard it run... But it seems to be a very well built boat. Mine has a 3.8 v6 with carb and efi. I know me and the wife are going to love it,

Hi I just bought a 94' sabre 245 it has the Merc Alpha One 4.3 L LX drive in it. The guy who owned it had passed away and his son sold the boat. The question I have is about the power trim/tilt, the control for it is on the shift lever and it works fine in the trim range but stops at full trim up position, that uses about 2-3" inches of the rams travel. How do I get it to tilt up for trailering? I have Volvo aq drive in my old boat and it has an additional switch you have to press along with the trim up switch. I can't find any such switch on this setup. Anybody got any idea?

On my Eagle, there's two trim motors. Both are on the same switch on the shift lever. There's a fine tune trim for when it's down. About half way up it switches to the other trim which is a completely different motor and hydraulic cylinder but it does this automatically as I push the button.

My guess you have a bad pump, or electrics to that pump from your switch. Look to see if there's another setup on the lower unit. If so, check to see if you get electricity to it when your fine tune tilt is all the way up.

I have a 1990 sabre with a 4.3 merc alpha 1 and my set up has a switch on the shifter handle to trim out your ride and a switch on the base of the shifted handle that says "trailer" that will take it up the rest of the way.
