    Just thought I'd share some pictures of our new to us boat that we picked up yesterday. It's a 1987 C Hawk 245 that was fully restored last year. Suzuki 300 with 62hrs. Moving up from our Hewes 220 SeaRunner that we had for 10 years. Hoping we don't regret going to glass!

    Electronics are a Garmin 94SV with GT51-TM, Simrad GO7 with a thru-hull, Simrad VHF, Rockford stereo and an older Furuno radar. Motor is 2016 with fly by wire controls. Yeti 250 mounted on deck. All LED lights throughout including in the bilge and under gunnels. We have a 2015 Suzuki 20hp kicker that we'll install soon. Three gunnel mount rod holders down each side and six across the transom.

    Looking good! Saw one of those a few years back on the Hood Canal. Solid looking boats.

    I was wondering if there were any up here. I heard of one over near the San Juans, but they are pretty scarce.

    Yeah wiring looks great ! All around nice looking boat.
    I think you will find glass is much less noise, and the trailer looks aluminum, so there you go.
    I see you are up there in Forks with Chris, so a bait tank is probably not a priority at this time. Anyway nice boat, good luck with it ! :beerbang:

    Yes sir! Good friend.

    We actually have a bait tank to install and have been looking for a local shop to do the work. We make the trip to Westport several times a year when the fish are out of reach up here.

    Yep there is one on D dock in Skyline Marina. Walker will walk right past it on the way to his boat.

    I recently installed one (my first). Looking back, they're pretty easy. Lots of good info on here to research. The biggest pain was getting all of the fittings and misc. parts.

    There is an AC system on the boat so all of the tough stuff is already done. We're going to remove the AC and just use the raw water pick-up and strainer for the bait tank. I would just feel more comfortable with a pro doing the install.
