Super-shallow running, sports car type of the Wooldridge Fleet

  The Wooldridge Alaskan is the super-shallow running, sports car type of the Wooldridge Fleet. It doesn't take a lot of power for this agile, sure-footed boat to display incredible handling and superior shallow water performance.
  Check out the formed ribs on the semi-V hull and the exclusive Wooldridge tunnel pioneered over two decades ago. The hull design combined with the unique tunnel enables this boat to maneuver like none other. It gets on step quickly and negotiates through narrow twisting waterways to get at the best of fishing.
   Alaskans are constructed of all-welded aluminum for durability and strength. Available in the length of 17'8": Either as an open boat with a console or tiller, or the windshield model which has a large walk-thru design and broad recessed, self-draining bow for easy access.
   The unique formed ribs on the semi-V hull provide traction on hard turns. They also promote vertical lift to get right up on step. Combined with the exclusive Wooldridge tunnel the Alaskan rallies through the corners with clean water funneled to the jet for optimal motor performance. The entire hull construction is built to add strength without unnecessary weight.
   Standard features, such as the built-in 36 gallon under floor fuel tank leaves more fishing room where needed. It also lowers the center of gravity to add stability and enhance cornering. The stand-up gunnels with toe kick provides more comfortable room to maneuver around inside.
   Alaskans also come with a full width self-bailing transom shelf, that’s handy for setting gear on. The large walk-thru two piece window enables excellent visibility with good protection from the elements. It makes beach access over the bow a breeze. Easily load large coolers or people young and old.
   Wooldridge boats have been refined through four generations of superior boat building. Rest assured that all Wooldridge boats come with a limited lifetime hull warranty for the original owner.
