River Warrior Loaded Layout

Front front to rear, we loaded this boat with the features you will need. Front troll motor mount, side gun and rod box, right side tray for rod and gun, huge front deck dry storage, full floor, trash can, gunwale accessory slots, twin level front deck, etc.

front deck

Phone Storage

This is a must for every boat. Your phone is safely secured next to your seat. The light on many phones can easily light up your boat.

Front Deck Twin Storage Trays

We try to think of everything when we build our boats. The front deck dry storage box has twin inner trays that can be used to hold 6 each Plano 3700 tackle trays, two motion decoys, and even your shells.

Side Tray

The open starboard side tray is a great place to set your gun, spud poles etc. The tray has a built in rod tube so your rod (up to 8′) is securely protected.

Dry Rod and Gun Storage

The port-side dry storage box features enough room for gear, gun, has two rod tubes, and securely latches for trailering.

Spud Pole Holes Bow and Aft

Again, we thought of everything for this loaded boat. Spud pole holes are provided on the front starboard side and the aft port side on the rear corner step. The holes will accept most all major brand metal and spud poles.

Camo Seat Option

This Optifade camo seat cover option is a great add to your boat. The seats come in both Optifade Marsh and Timber patterns. As most customers know, Optifade is exclusive to Excel and Mud Buddy and Sitka clothing gear products. The seats are a perfect addition to your Sitka clothing and Excel/Mud Buddy boat.

Front Deck Rope and Decoy Ring

The twin level front deck is great for fishing, for storage and off course – since we use these boats, we try to think of everything – even the welded front deck decoy ring/rope tie that securely holds your spread in place ready for the hunt.

Rear Step

The River Warrior features twin rear corner steps for easy access in the driveway or from the marsh. Also makes good access for your retriever.

Cutoff Switch

The convenient rear port cutoff switch provides easy access from your driveway or the marsh to completely disconnect the battery when the boat is not in use. No more dead batteries after leaving your lights or accessories on while hunting or in storage.

Plano Tackle Storage Area

The front deck storage areas has two deep trays that are sized to fit 6 Plano tackle storage boxes. The trays can also be used to hold other items like a plastic ammo box for tools, shells, etc.

Drain Plug Holder

Have you ever played hide and seek with your drain plug – no more. Such a simple thing but so cool to have on your boat. Like we said, “we try to think of everything.”
