The new

1686 Bay Hawk

Our largest boat - and a radical departure from the traditional River Hawk hull design,

the new Bay Hawk has an ultra-sharp entry to provide a smooth, dry ride

through the typical chop encountered on most bays and large lakes -

yet is still able to fish the shallowest flats with its 6 "- 7 " draft.

Needless to say,

with the River Hawk name on it,

you know it is exceptionally stable!
