Default 1990 Chris Craft Sea Hawk 19'?

I'm new here, and i'm looking into a couple of boats.

Does anybody know about this boat? What is it worth with a 2001 honda 115 four stroke?

Any opinions would be appreciated.

Welcome, Have you looked at any comps. on the net? Boatrader or Yachtworld may be a start. You may be able to get a value on the motor off NADA. Good luck!

I had an 1989 19' Sea Hawk powered by a 89 Mariner 115hp. Since it was my first real boat, I really liked it. The quality was good and the design still looks goods today.

With a light load, the performance was fine, but it had trouble getting up with 4 or more adults on board. The gas tank held only 35 gallons. Not a lot of range running the Mariner at close to WOT. Mine had a live well built into the deck. The connection to the hull would leak and allow water into the hull.

Couple things about your setup. Hull was designed and built prior to four strokes. The heavier Honda may put some additional stress on the transom. Check for cracks and flexing. The four might cause the rear to sit below the scuppers, so check the attitude of the boat at rest in the water. When evaluating the performance, make sure you have a full tank of gas and weight added to account for your typical load. 25mph was about the max I could get loaded at WOT. Also check the livewell drain in the deck. This probably accounted for some of the performance problems. If I knew then what I know now, I might still get the boat, but with a bigger engine and seal the livewell off peramanently.

All in all though, it was a good lake and waterway boat. Maybe limited nearshore fishing.
