  1. Howard 255 VTX - Merc 520

    View attachment 693215

    Howard recently completed and delivered their latest 255 VTX with a Merc 520! As you are going to see in the video the entire point of this boat is "Fun!" So many boat companies are caught up in keeping up with the Jone's (Ironically a lot of them are trying to keep up with Howard), that they tend to forget why we all got into this to begin with!...
  2. Schiada Regatta... Traditionally Non-Traditional

    The annual Schiada Regatta also commonly known as the Notta Regatta is and has always been an event far removed from the regular cookie cutter regatta mold. There is no registration table, or registration party, or registration of any kind for that matter. There also is no host hotel, no poker run, no industry sponsors, and there most definitely isn't any awards/dinner/raffle held in a drab...

    View attachment 686751

    This past weekend, the Campbell Boat Owners group got together in Lake Havasu City to hold their 46 th Annual Campbell Boat Regatta. 46 years of boating and partying is an amazing testament to the love and dedication these owners have for a boat that was last manufacture 21 years ago. With new boats showing up all the time, this year’s regatta did not disappoint....
  5. BARRON BOATS’ 290 SPORT NEARING COMPLETION

    To Jerry Barron, it seems like an eternity. That’s the way nearly all built-from-scratch new boats
    seem to go, never as expeditiously as initially planned or hoped. And making the challenge
    even larger is the fact that Barron Boats didn’t even exist ten months ago.

    (Exterior styling is definitely original. Modern with clean contours accentuated with
    appropriate gelcoat graphics.)...

    Ask any marine repair shop involved in routinely servicing high performance boats,
    engines and propulsion systems….“what’s the single most abused and broken
    component encountered on a regular basis?” That’s easy, the standard Mercury Bravo
    One sterndrive.

    When Mercury introduced the Bravo One back in 1988 (replacing the...
  7. RDP Boat Tests are coming Back and with a FURY!

    I am excited to announce that we are getting back into both Boat Tests! RiverDavesPlace.com is traditionally recognized as a lifestyle website. That's not to say that we haven't put out some of the best and most accurate boat tests in the industry to date! That's to say we didn't put out very many of them or follow up with further tests.

    It's time that we put our best foot forward and...
  8. Taming The Dragon... A Land Lovers Guide To The LOTO Shootout.

    The performance boating community is a mixed bag of personalities, boats, and waterways. Each geographical region of boating holds its legends and lore and boaters from each proudly carry their flag high and tout their home water as the best in the country. Those of us on the west coast are fond of speaking with great fervor about such areas as The Delta, Lake Powell, Lake Havasu, or Parker....
