The prop is fed by a unique tunnel design that runs the entire length of the boat - nearly from the stem all the way to the transom.
This unique design does several things: First, it acts as a keel when the boat is turning at high speeds, much better than most traditional tunnel boats which utilize a small pocket. Second, it provides a ready supply of clean water, allowing the boat and engine to run at speed through nearly ankle-deep water. With the help of the jack plate, the operator may trim the engine above the bottom of the hull, which lets the skiff run in extremely shallow water without damaging precious sea grass or sand flats. The TR7 poles exceedingly well, tracking nearly dead straight and requiring little if any correction. It is very light and responsive and should be a good boat to pole into the tide and wind when chasing the big three. A no-slap hull similar to that on other top-end technical poling skiffs turns the boat into a dead-quiet, stealthy fishing platform.
Design and Construction
Like all Sterling models, the TR7 is built using a proprietary, three-piece construction process whereby the outer hull and inner liner are bonded together, injected with foam flotation under high pressure and then chemically bonded together with the cap, forming one solid piece. Remaining true to its high-tech poling-skiff roots, the boat is made entirely of carbon fiber and Kevlar, delivering a hull weight of just over 500 pounds.
While many manufacturers today are opting for vacuum bagging their boats, Sterling continues to utilize talented artisans to hand lay-up every hull.
One of the most impressive things about the TR7 is the attention to detail in rigging and finish work. The batteries are located under the center console, with a breaker panel and Perko battery switch that are among the easiest to access I've ever seen. All of the skiff's accessories are plug-and-play, allowing anglers to switch bilge or livewell pumps and other items on the fly.
This boat boat comes loaded, including the poling platform, Lenco electric-trim tabs, hydraulic jack plate, a 10-gallon baitwell and 25-gallon release well, removable backrest, power pole with two remotes and helm access,a trolling motor with quick attach,a 21' G Loomis pole, LED running and courtesy lights and a custom-matched Ameritrail aluminum trailer.with spare tire.
In 2008, anglers may opt to power the skiff with a 90-horsepower Yamaha, bumping the speed up to 40 mph.
