There's a part of every boat test when I feel like a cop tossing a perp's apartment. I open every hatch, deck plate and locker, inspecting access, drainage, even the way hinges are fastened. Ransacking Crestliner's 1800 Super Hawk gave me reason to smile. Aft, I discovered a hatch that revealed this boat is pre-wired for a trolling motor and includes a sturdy platform to secure the battery. Spinning open a deck plate, I found terrific access to both livewell pumps, and was delighted to find both were easy-to-replace cartridge models. The lockable drawer beneath the helm is perfect for securing electronics and stowing personal items, like that special lure you reserve for tough days. But when I flipped open the center section of the bow, I was wowed: This boat turns from big-water fisherman to family runabout in a matter of seconds.
