Identify this Riken?

I have owned this old Riken for 4 years, and it has been a great boat. I have recently fallen for a pretty little R2 though, and I am planning on selling it. I have not been able to find much info or many pictures of Rikens, and my boat doesn't look like any I have seen pics of. Does anyone out there know anything about this model? Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Never seen one like that. It looks like the love child of two different Rikens. I have seen ones with the skirt on both ends ( forget the name right now, it might just be the littlest pioneer) but never just on one end. It looks like something they made as a paddleboat. Rounded stern like a dodger for the guide and a pointed bow for cutting waves and splashing custies. It has the same design properties of an Aire E series. Sorry I cant offer more.

most folks interested in buying will be more concerned with the condition of the actual boat now, than any historical model information you might dig up.

Pretty sure that's a Mohawk from the mid to late 80s.

The Mohawks that I knew were tapered at both ends, with the pillows. I haven't seen one like this. What's the serial number plate have on it? Any other markings anywhere?

So my boss has owned several Rikens from this era and said this is a Riken Dodger. I have a 14' Mohawk and it is tapered on both ends.
