Calidris recently acquired a boat! "Buttercup II" is a 19' rigid-hull Zodiac Hurricane. It is powered by a 2016 150 hp Evinrude E-tech outboard on a 2' aluminium pod and has a back up 9.9 hp Honda kicker. She's commercially registered and rigged with navigation, marine radio and a custom aluminum pilothouse. This boat is a safe platform for an array of marine or freshwater applications. It's easily trailered and can be launched from rustic ramps. Get in touch if you have a project requiring this sort of vessel.
