Depending on where you're from it may be called, "free drifting", "side-drifting", "dragging", "rolling shot" or "boon-dogging". These techniques that require critical boat control, perfect balance and a boat that responds immediately to your commands. The 6° whitewater bottom vee married to Alumaweld's exclusive performance Path Lifting Strakes TM enable the Free Drifter to drift into shallow tailouts and plane quickly with minimal bow rise. Wide tackle trays are perfect for storing rods. The forward fuel tank position enhances the Free Drifter's balance which is essential for proper control and the open design allows complete freedom of movement for casting. Call it what you like, but free-drifting is here to stay and has exploded in popularity. Alumaweld worked closely with some of the top experts in the field to create the ultimate ride for the application. The response? A tailored design and new series appropriately named, the Free Drifter.
