Pushed by a standard 50-horsepower diesel engine, it is designed to cruise at 10 knots. The rig is tabernacle-stepped -- relatively easy to lower for bridges, for ducking under trees in backwater haunts or for power cruising. Draft of 2’10" allows entry into most gunkholes. Waterline length of 29’3" contributes to speed and sea-keeping potential, while highway-friendly beam of 8’6" is carried well forward to optimize stability and interior volume. The underbody sports a long, straight keel of encapsulated cast iron.
