The patented Bug Series is quick and responsive
The Bugs are boats with a new concept. Looking down from the top, they look like a raft. Looking up from the bottom, they look like a cataraft with a high floor. We combined the best features of both the raft and the cataraft together in one boat, and the Bugs were created.
The Bugs have the speed, maneuverability, and surfing performance of a cataraft, while at the same time providing the comfort, convenience, and splash protection of a raft. The Bugs are appropriate for experienced rafters for use on Class III - Class IV + rivers. The variety of sizes and the speed of the Bugs also makes them a dream for families or small groups to use on slower and milder rivers.
We constructed the huge main tubes 26¡± in diameter, diminishing to 16¡± at the bow and stern, with a minimal number of seams. Then we mounted the heavy - duty, super tough, 4000 denier Standard Floor, 14¡± up from the bottom of the tubes, up in the middle of the Super Bugs.
The Sport Bug(SPB14) - A Raft and a Transom sport boat combined
The Sport Bug is great for lakes, calm or whitewater rivers, or any combination in one trip. The Sport Bug has up to three thwarts for paddling or it can be equipped with a row frame. Put a motor on this versatile craft and you have a sport boat. You can use it on a whitewater river through the rapids with the motor up, and then enjoy a power boat ride on the flat water. A 9.9 hp motor is the largest recommended for use on whitewater and with experienced rafters only. On lakes or flat water, a 20 hp motor provides excellent speed.
