There are time restrictions on those permits. I believe you can't move an over width on holidays and after 12 noon on Saturdays.

And need over width signs on the trailer.

What boat do you have?



they have relaxed some of the restrictions

I have the 25' C-hawk with the pilot house

Yeah. They changed the time you can start hauling.

Used to be 7 am. Now I think it is 1 am. Didn't change holidays or Saturday. At least not yet.

The big 25' C Hawk is a nice boat.

I had a chance a couple of years ago at a 29' C hawk with a Cummings Diesel. Passed. Dumb mistake on my part.

man, not many of those come up for sale.  It took 2 years to find mine.  Most were junk and ragged out and they wanted top dollars for them.  This one needed work but I paid next to nothing for it.  It now has a brand new 350 in it.  I have to pick it up this weekend.  It's over your way.

Did you have the new motor put in? If so, who did it and how much?

Reason I'm asking is my motor has a lot hours on it and I'm thinking a new motor is in order. I have a a 24' Privateer with a inboard 350.

I bought it from an older lady in Tolchester.  I just happened to be at the right place at the right time.

Thanks for all the info I am considering the 22ft C hawk with side console and the 115 Honda 4 stroke it will take 6 months to get. Don't know much about Hondas always had Mercury any opinion on them ? Also the dealer is Caroline Boating Center never herd of them but seemed nice.

Do a search on Google about the reviews of the Honda 115.  I can't remember which size it was but one of them was having major issues.  I was looking at a Stiegler pilot house that had one on it and then I did some research.  It turned me off the boat.

Any opinions on a C Hawk 20'
Originally built for commercial application. You won't be making a mistake if you pick one up.

D,   I was looking at the picture of your boat.  NICE.  That 350 chevy engine,  was it overhauled for marine application.  I had a 350 in my shrimp boat.  It was modified with a different cam and brass freeze out plugs.  260 HP output.   It also had a 1,91:1 Volvo gear transmission.  I turned a 18 X 20 4 blade bronze prop.  Back then it was fitted with a 4 barrel carb but it did have electronic ignition.

Thanks Ronnie

It is a marine duty brand new out of the crate.  It also has a 4barrel on it/electronic ignition and the Volvo outdrive.

Is it a 4 bolt main?  We can get that engine with EFI also.
