Mission of the Ebbtide 2700 Cuddy Bow Rider
The Ebbtide 2700 Cuddy Bow Rider is a member of that new type of bow rider with a small cabin or cuddy. The concept of this new breed – there are four or five others on the market – is to provide lots of seating and also have a place to get out of the weather. Her cozy seating below with a table can also be converted into sleeping accommodations for an adventuresome couple who like to overnight now and then at anchor.
With a bolted-on swim platform extension she has a large launching pad for watersports of all kinds. And her 24-degree deadrise is ready for just about anything rivers and lakes can dish up and still provide a comfortable ride.
Ebbtide’s Strong Suit is its Construction. It is so proud of it that it is the first thing the builder usually talks about. Its layup regimen includes a layer of Kevlar in the keel to protect against puncture from deadheads or stumps. A hand laminated hull with 3 layers of woven roving plus a layer of Kevlar fiber, makes for a strong bottom that Ebbtide says is flex-free.
Foamed Hull Sides. In addition to the layers of woven roving, glass mat and core mat, Ebbtide also puts in a rather thick layer of closed-cell foam in the hull sides which provides stiffening, strength and sound-deadening properties. As far as foaming the hull sides goes to reduce noise, Ebbtide is an industry leader.
No Chop. The builder also claims not to use a chopper gun to spray in glass strands and resin, a technique used for years by many companies, but one eschewed by most builders these days because it is heavy and increasingly expensive.
Wood Stringers. Here is where Ebbtide diverges from growing industry practice. Ebbtide contends that its wood stringer system provides a more comfortable ride than do boats with all-chemical-and-glass stringer systems. It says, "… wood stringers have the flexible memory to absorb shock and vibration, they do not transfer sound, they're heavier and provide a more solid ride, and they take rough seas better."
Ebbtide calls its stringer system Dura-Core and says that an attribute of its process is that its solid Perma-Panel treated wood stringers have a bond that penetrates wood deeper than the surface-only bond of the man-made material.
Is Rot a Problem? Because Ebbtide (like most other builders) uses a skin coat of vinylester resin, osmosis water migration through the hull is prevented. Further, its wood components are completely encapsulated in polyester resin. To close out the discussion, Ebbtide has a limited lifetime warranty on the hull, stringers and transom.

Ebbtide has never been a national – or a nationally advertised -- brand. However, it has been a successful regional builder, with a cadre of loyal dealers and customers, mostly in the American Midwest. Beyond that, it is one of those companies that has long hidden its candle under a bushel.
