Q: What is Roto
Roto Casting is a process of rotational molding in which
plastic powder is put into a metal mold. The mold is then
placed inside an oven and rotated on it's vertical & horizontal
axis. The plastic powder melts and coats the inside of
the mold forming the shape of the hull.
Q: Why is Roto Casting better?
This process allows better consistency resulting in a
more uniform hull thickness especially in corners, where
as blow molding and thermal forming tend to thin out in
the corners. A consistent hull thickness means a stronger
Q: What size battery should I use?
of what size battery you choose, for best results use a deep
cycle 12 volt marine battery. These batteries will vary in
amp size and choosing the proper size will depend on how
long you plan on fishing or using your motor. The more amps
that the battery has, the longer and faster you will be able
to run the motor on a charge.
Q: Where should I put the battery?
For the best weight distribution, the battery should be
placed in front of the live well.
Q: Can I use a small 1 or 2 HP

Q: How does cold weather effect
Polyethylene does not get brittle in the cold and therefore
is a perfect material for boats. You don't have to worry
about being careful with it in the fall and winter.
Q: How rough of water can the Creek
Creek Boats were designed for creeks, small lakes, ponds,
backwaters, etc. Obviously you wouldn't take one of these
boats out in the ocean or on a rough lake and the more
will be able to handle rough water better than the novice.
People who are expert in white water are able to take a
canoe through a class 5 rapid but the average person probably
wouldn't live to tell about it. Use your common sense when
venturing out on the water and always wear a life jacket.
Q: Will the boat sink if it gets swamped?
Creek Boats have a two part flotation formula. First,
all are fitted with U.S. Coast Guard approved flotation
and combined with the natural buoyancy properties of polyethylene,
both assist in the flotation of the boat. The combination
of these two things will keep the boat afloat if filled
