The TR7 has redefined the term "running shallow." The TR7 can run in a few inches of water without disturbing vegetation or sand bottom. The ability to run this shallow can make the difference between continuing safely or abruptly running aground when you encounter unexpected extremely shallow condiitons. The unique tunnel design utilizes a full-length shallow tunnel with vertical side walls that capture water at speed to channel to the propeller. The vertical side walls also act a full-length keels to provide exceptionally precise turning ability and effortless directional control when poling even in a cross wind. The extra width of the TR7 profides additional buoyancy that contributes to the extraordinary shallow draft and stability. The unusually shallow tunnel helps to maintain buoyancy when at rest and improved high-speed performance. The TR7 has every attribute a shallow water skiff should have. It is absolutely silent, surprisingly stable, unequalled in shallow water capability, effortless to pole, and a precise pleasure to drive. There is no question that the TR7 has created a class of its own...nothing comes close.
