Working on my new to me 1998 Crestliner. Had it on Green Bay 2 weeks ago and had an unusual spraying coming off the motor to both sides. Not a huge problem, but unusual to me. I plan on pursuing 2 things to fix: 1) Raise the boat motor by about 2 inches. The motor isn't extremely low, but my 2 pics should show the anti-cavitation plate perhaps 1-2 inches to low compared to the bottom of the boat. The 1750 hull really has a exaggerated "strake" in the center. This will be option 2 I pursue. 2) Move the (3) Group 29 Trolling motor batteries from just in front of the splash well to under the port console (passenger). Since the boat lists with only the 190 lb driver in the boat, this could possibly fix both issues. Easy enough to test by just moving the batteries and testing it out. If that doesn't work, then I can always move the batteries further forward and test. Please feel free to comment and criticize. I expect this whole project to take a few months, as I try something and then take a week or 2 to get it on the water for the next test.
