Multiple layers of copolymer fabric with thousands of drop stitches per square inch result in an extremely rigid, lightweight hull-stiffening system that eliminates many of the weight and setup problems typical of conventional plywood floorboard boats without sacrificing performance. With impressive rigidity, these boats accelerate quickly and reach impressive speeds, while requiring less horsepower than comparably-sized "hard-floor" boats. Plus, the 16"dia. tubes give great stability.
The inflatable keel gives the hull a responsive shallow V-shape. Set up and launch takes about 10 minutes. Includes Bravo-10 bellows foot pump. Valves are semi-recessed for safety. A self bailer helps drain water. The rubbing strake protects the tubes from abrasion and puncture. Includes a wooden bench seat, aluminum oars, oarlocks, lifelines, a pair of towing rings and bow handles, bellows pump, carry bag and repair kit.
