I am sure you will bring the name Hawk Power back to it's former self!
I would like to see the Hawk back on the sides of boats again!

This is just my two cents, but I think you'll do alright with the Hawk name as it's a well-known name and had a very good reputation for many years. There are still a lot of boats with the Hawk Power logos on the sides and it seems to be a source of pride for the owners.
Good luck. Dave

Dang Kevin! You just gave up one of the great secrets of the Big Bend area! Man, whatever you do, just don't tell 'em about Dog Island!!!

Good luck taking over the Hawk engine operation.
