SNAKE SHOOTER VEE 20
For whitewater river running, not much matches this sled. The design includes two V bottom options. For ultimate shallow water use, build the 6° transom vee (12° bow entry). For deeper rivers or more open or other choppy waters, build the 12° transom vee (20° bow entry). With either bottom, you get a beamy hull deep enough for safety, with generous full length flare for dry running.

Topside, you can build an open cockpit Center Console Version or a pass thru Windshield Version with forward cockpit.

Separate plans are available for either sheet plywood or welded aluminum construction. Plywood hulls total 1/2" bottoms and 3/8" sides over a rugged framework, with fiberglass coverings on the outside. Aluminum hulls have 3/16" bottoms and 1/8" sides over transverse frames reinforced by standard extrusion longitudinals. Construction is simple yet rugged in either material. Sides and bottom are fully developed for easy application without special forming.

The plans also include simple methods for either increasing or decreasing the length.

POWER Power comes from a single 20" or 25" shaft outboard retrofitted with a jet pump lower unit or a stern mounted inboard with jet drive. Or use an outboard or I/0 unit with prop where waters permit they're all detailed.
