I recently picked up a 1999 ActionCraft 1720 and have started to bring her back to life. I am the third owner and I know the other two. It’s been a well maintained boat but has been sitting since it was repowered. Always loved fishing from this boat and jumped at the chance to buy her. She is well powered with a 115 Evinrude eTec with very low hours (14.7), a Bob’s Machine Jack plate, power pole and a new Garmin sidescan sonar. There are a few things to do. Leaking hydraulic steering at the helm, bilge pump sounds bad, the float switch does not work and there is no trolling motor. The green gel coat needs to be wet sanded and polished. The repairs are pretty basic. The question is which trolling motor to pair with this boat. Go with a standard 80 lb Minn Kota or step up to a remote controlled unit? Here’s a couple of pic of my new boat.
