The Gear Shed - Raft Design - Cuthbert
We sat down with Team Paddler Daniel Jenkins to chat about the boat design for his custom Sotar raft named Cuthbert, which has shown up in a ton of our videos. Daniel designed this raft for some very specific whitewater in mind. For what it is designed for the boat's performance characteristics are fantastic. There are also some key lessons from the design of this boat which would influence what rivers you might prefer taking this design on. This is Daniel's mark 1 design and a first solid attempt at designing a hard core creek boat. Check out Daniel's design and the lessons we learned from this design!
