|ROGUE RUNNER 18|
|Navigate wide, fast moving, rock strewn rivers in our whitewater sled boat. An upswept pram bow with some "vee" in the bottom, flaring topsides and flat run aft assure rapid, safe motivation even in the shallows. There is a husky internal structure for solid mounting of consoles, seats, and engines capable of rigorous duty. Outer hull surfaces are protected by fiberglass sheathing and three rubrails per side.
The huge open interior allows builders to outfit the boat to suit their needs; either a short or long foredeck is optional.
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 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.
