old man has a 18 foot crownline. the ride is very good i would say as good as most boats in the 20 foot range. both boats are of good quality. i would pick the one that has had better maintenance.

i think rinker vs crownline is like yugo vs lexus . the fast planing is probably from less weight due to less quality . just my opinion . look at the original costs of both . i bought a stingray in 99 for 22000.00 . the comparable crownline was 10000.00 more .

Like sleepy said, crownline is a much better quality craft. just look at the fit and finish between the two.

what's up batman . the dealer i bought my stingray from also had crownline . seemed like a top notch boat but too much money . 10 grand extra . glastron was 4grand more at the time but i didn't like the looks and they had less performance . stingray had hand laid hull , higher speeds , better fuel economy , no wood in the floor except the decking , which is guaranteed for life . power steering was standard and i really liked the looks . it has been a great boat . everyone who rides in it is impressed by the ride and performance , and how nice it is inside . my friend bought a rinker at the same time and side by side it seemed like a bayliner compared to my stingray . as far as i know it was dependable and trouble free . merc 4.3 and alpha 1 will be that way in just about anything .

All I can go by is looks, my vote is the Crown. I remember seeing a red Crown with the black checkered flag on the lake nice looking boat.

hey sleepy, my first boat was a bayliner.......yeah, i was young and stupid back then.............i too once had a top notch boat........was a supra ts6m tournament ski boat with a 5.7. ride was great...........only went about 50mph...........but got there in no time........didnt matter if i had 1 or 6 people in the boat........still same speed.........pulled up 12 skiers at a time...........that was a fun boat..................now all i have is a smokercraft with a 90hp merc.


the supra looked like this one...........but without the top canopy

my first was also a bayliner but an old one . 1981 eagle 190. seemed much better than the flood of ciera boats that came after . my stringer was rotted which lead me to stingray with a one-piece fiberglass stringer cut with waterjet and glassed in . the supra looks sweet . smokercraft for fishing?
