We were going to go with vinyl--but changed over to paint on advice from John (JJ 225).

Re: New Riverhawk Family Boat Build

Hey Bob:
Looking at the photo in post #24, do you think we should just run the bottom paint right up to the bottom line of the blue paint?
Cheers,

Re: New Riverhawk Family Boat Build

Our boat left the shop in Oregon today and is headed North to Cabelas for final fitout! Our Man Dan was kind enough to provide a few more pics. I tried to add all the photos to the first post-- but apparently 20 is the max number of photos allowed in one post. Here is No. 21

250 or 300 for new 24 pilothouse

Hi Guys: I am wondering what you all would recommend for powering our new boat. They will be hanging the motor next week. We originally planned to use the 4.2 liter 250 Yamaha--but have been considering bumping up to the 300. Our boat is a Riverhawk Cuddy Pro 24 feet with 2 foot offshore bracket. Dr...

Hey Welcome and thanks for posting pics of your boat. I would bet dollars to doughnuts that eventually someone will figure out who built you boat. Cool project--thanks for sharing.

Oh yeah! If you like the Pacifics, you should look at the Rocksalt boats that Bob does. Very stout boats and a lot closer to you.

Re: Who makes this boat?

Sorry, I can't identify it--but it is a nice looking center console. It looks like the website is hosted by a Seattle based company--but I guess that does not necessarily mean it is a Seattle--area boat. they could have got the pic from anywhere off the net. But I would guess someone will eventually...

Re: New Riverhawk Family Boat Build

Hey Mike, is that paint or vinyl? If I had to do it again I'd nix the vinyl stripe on my boat. It had small nicks in it just from bringing it down from Seattle. Got a good dock rash on it a few weeks ago going up wind into the dock. Just way better to not have anything on it. Looks pretty but not r...

Re: New Riverhawk Family Boat Build

I think the pic posted by Gypseas is pretty close to what our boat will look like (same color). The blue stripe will be narrower on our boat and ours has 2 foot more dance floor. The fuel filler is also in the same location on our boat. For what we do, a 100 gallon tank should be plenty--so probably...
