    Default New Raider 2484 Cuddy

    Pulled the trigger after 5+ years of research and planning. Figured i would post because of the lack of info on Raider and i like other peoples build pictures!! I went with Raider because of how much boat i could get and the all around simplicity of the boat. i had a few custom add ons during the build and of course upgraded many thing.

    I had them leave out the starboard side window above the galley so that i can later have a cabinet fabricated. I also added three more cleats to the boat one in front of the anchor locker and one on each side starboard and port up front.

    I chose to go with a self-bailing diamond plate deck with added second steering station. Ill be running a single Honda 250 with a Honda 9.9 high thrust kicker.
    Once i pick the boat up in a week from Power Sports Marine in Portland, Oregon I will get more detailed pictures up and talk about what i had upgraded and added.

    Hope you enjoy!
    Erik

    The boat has been delivered. Raider is putting out a no thrills price competitive boat and i could not be more pleased. The guys at Power Sports Marine got me everything i asked for and even though of some stuff i did not.

    The boat has three batteries two 6V house batteries and one 12V cranking batter and blue star ACR

    Second helm steers the main with a tie bar to the kicker, throttle control is for the kicker.
    The main helm has Honda digital tac with fuel management also blue star VSM 422 for battery management. Trim-tabs are upgraded LED

    I added port and starboard USB plugs up front on the dash and a CO alarm in the cuddly

    Went with a single burner Wallas stove/heater. Gave me more counter space in the long run.


    I had them leave out the ice box that comes standard and opted to have them put a cabinet door on it. I now have all kinds of storage space under the sink.

    Got the anchor on went with a 25lb Manson with 26ft of 1/4 BBB chain and 600ft of 1/2 line. I know its a little over kill but i will be spending a lot of time sleeping on the hook so i don't want to worry at all!

    Coho,
    Is the slot used to retrieve stuck anchor?

    In reading about it, it appears that the slot is to pre-adjust the connection based on bottom types. It would be nice to hear if it does aid in releasing stuck anchors, as I am tired of replacing zip ties.

    That's the theory anyway. There is a nut and bolt that can be placed were I have it now, you can loosen and move to the other end then tighten in place if you think you will anchor in poor ground. This allows the shackle to move freely down the shank. I see moving the bolt to the fluke end and just leaving it there.
