3RM’s Latest Custom Alumaweld Super Vee

Jeff has had a fulfilling career with the Portland Fire Department, and as retirement nears, he couldn’t think of anything he would rather do than spend more time with his lovely wife Katie at his favorite fishing haunts; the Columbia, Willamette, Sandy, and the Oregon Coast. We were honored to help him build an Alumaweld Super Vee. Jetted for the river, but designed for every fishery he loves. We can’t wait for the fishing reports to roll in from our new friends down south!

Powered up with an Alumaweld Super Vee

Jeff is ready for some great Spring and Summer fishing opportunities with his new Alumaweld Super Vee 20′, professionally rigged by 3 Rivers Marine. Being a lifelong sportsman, Jeff has fished all over the Pacific Northwest, and made the decision to upgrade from a drift boat into something that will get him better access to our big water fisheries. The Super Vee LT was the perfect choice for his family!

The crew at 3 Rivers Marine outfitted Jeff’s boat with a Yamaha F150 jet, Yamaha high thrust 9.9 kicker, and a Minn Kota Riptide 80# thrust electric for low water side drifting.

A Dream Realized: Alumaweld Blackhawk

Dan & Alyssa are a young couple from Snohomish. They have been dreaming of a new boat, one that would allow them to explore Puget Sound and take advantage of great fishing and crabbing. They want to instill their love of the outdoors with their growing family, and what better way to do so than spending summers on the water. They needed a boat that would provide the family a soft ride, plenty of space, and safe for the little one. The 3 Rivers Marine crew wanted to help this couple fulfill their dreams and turn them into a reality.

The Alumaweld Blackhawk 202 was the perfect boat for the young couple. This model features a heavy-gauge welded aluminum hull with a deep Vee, offering a smooth ride in the open water. The standard Alumadrive bracket pushes back the main outboard from the transom, increasing the amount of deck space, adds room for an in-transom fish box and allows for the safety of a full height transom. With models in 18 and 20 foot, it’s a great choice for anyone looking for versatility and comfort ability in one hull.

And with a few special modifications, we turned their new boat into a saltwater fishing machine, with all the creature comforts.

Outfitted with the new Yamaha F115, this redesigned outboard model is lighterweight, has a larger alternator and adds and extra 1000 RPM’s compared to its predecessor. Yamaha High-Thrust 9.9hp kicker motor which makes for easy trolling and plumbed with a hot wash basin makes for easy cleanup.

Scotty electric downriggers with a long boom sets this couple up for successful salmon fishing in the Sound.

The electronics configuration is dialed, with a Lowrance HDS 7 sonar/gps unit with a NEEMA Network Connection that fully integrates all the necessary operating information on the screen, removing the need for a cluster of gauges on the dash, plus a Sonic Hub Sound System. We went fully digital on this one!

Being stored outdoors on a wooded property, Dan & Alyssa needed to find a solution to keep fir needles from littering the deck and getting into the bilge. We were happy to take on the challenge. 3 Rivers Marine engineered a custom slant-back marine grade cover that will keep their boat looking great, throughout the seasons.

With a little hard work and customization, Dan & Alyssa are ready to have some great on the water experiences for years to come!

Alumaweld Columbia- The Perfect Office

A 3RM Logo on the front step deck of an Alumaweld Columbia

Long time 3 Rivers Marine Pro-Staffer, Trevor Storlie of Portland, Oregon recently contacted us to change the look of his office. Being a NW fishing guide and spending 100 days a year on the Columbia River, Trevor needed a boat that would provide his clients comfort and safety in a cutting edge, fish catching package.

The Alumaweld Columbia is the premier big water cross over on the market. It tracks like  an Alumaweld Super Vee for back trolling and anchor fishing, but  adds the versatility in the hull to be a phenomenal wave buster when the going gets tough.

Alumaweld Blackhawk- “Open Wide”

If you’ve every spent time fishing Puget Sound or the coast, chances are you’ve seen the Alumaweld Blackhawk. Know for its eighteen degree dead rise, and ability to handle adverse conditions, it’s a real performer in the 18 and 20 foot standard formats. With that in mind, Three Rivers Recently changed the game with building a non-windshield model, open style, and with a center console. This boat has all of the features that excite most open tiller sled model owners, but with a deep soft riding full Vee. This boated wouldn’t be complete without all of the 3RM custom aluminum fabrication that make fishing more efficient. This model is a real work horse coming in at 26′. Once again 3 Rivers delivers a stunning build, with all of the custom features that have built their reputation as an innovator in the fishing and boating industry.
