1985 Renken bow rider. 4 cylinder Volvo Penta I/O. I really miss this boat. It would have made a great catfishing mean machine. I sold it when the economy took a nose dive before I got into the hardcore catfishing thing, now I wish I still had it. It had power trim tabs on both sides of the transom, a hardwired remote bow spotlight, a walk through windshield, fiverglass floor that cleaned up easily, a wash down pump and hose, I can't go on, I am getting sad.... http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/cry.gif

It had a closed loop antfreeze cooling system so you never had to winterize it and could run in cold weather. There was an exchanger the let the raw water cool the antifreeze. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/waytogo.gif

There was 2 back to back seats on each side at the drviers and pass positions that opened up into flat beds to lounge and sun on. They were neat because after getting to your spot you just sit on the other side to face the back of the boat and wait for a bite. At the transom you got the engine cover in the middle we used for cutting bait on and there were pop in and out seat cushions you could have on either side of that if you had extra people.

It was a great cold weather boat with the high sides and the windshield. I had the propane heater right in front of the engine cover facing the front of the boat, it made cold weather channel catting a treat! And the washdown hose with the fiberglass floor was the best. http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/yes.gif
