Amish outfitter boards with Big Jon electric.

Keep away from the riviera automatic with the Amish outfitter boards.

Agreed on the Amish Outfitter boards. The Big Jon manual mast is fine too depending on your boat and if it is a problem getting up to the mast to crank it in. Definitely much cheaper than electric and still excellent quality.

I should have included the big Jon manual, a solid piece of equipment. I saw the riviera manual mast the other day, looks like a very solid mast. I wouldn't shy away from one of them either.
