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 its 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 boat.
Q: What size battery should I use?
Regardless 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 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.
In the M11, the battery is placed behind the seat.
Q: Can I use a small 1 or 2 HP
outboard motor on these boats?
Creek Boats were designed and rated for use with an
electric trolling motor. You should not use any other type
of motor under any circumstances.
Q: Do I have to register this
Regulations vary state to state. Check with your State's
Fish and Game Management Division or Marine Wildlife
Resource Department for the laws governing the registration
of small boats.
Q: Should I store the boat inside
or will it be OK outside?
Creek Boats are made from UV resistant polyethylene,
therefore the structural integrity of the boat is
unaffected by the sun, but to keep your boat from fading
and looking new for years, storing inside or covered up
outside is recommended.
Q: How does cold weather effect
Polyethylene does not get brittle in the cold and
therefore is a perfect material for boats.
Q: How rough of water can the
Creek Boat handle?
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
experienced boaters 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
Creek Boats have a two part flotation formula. First, all
are fitted with U.S. Coast Guard approved flotation in the
bow and stern 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 with water.
Q: Are Creek Boats available in
At this time, all Creek Boats are only available in one
color. The military spec olive drab green color is custom
blended for Greentop Enterprise. It is non-glare and blends
in great with outdoor surroundings.
Q: What type of warranty do Creek
Creek Boats have a one year warranty against defects in
materials and workmanship for original owners.
Q: Can I use a trailer
with my Creek Boat, and do you sell trailers?
You can use a trailer with your Creek Boat, but it is
important to choose one that supports the entire length of
the boat. The bunks of the trailer should be as long as the
bottom of your Creek Boat. We do not sell trailers here, but
many marine dealers do – you might try a Google search for a
trailer dealer in your area.
Greentop Enterprise will not assume any
liability for damages or loss of life due to improper use of
these products. Prices and specifications are subject to
