View Larger Image THOSE WHO CAME TO FISH COME TO WELDCRAFT.
Once again, the 188 Weldcraft Rebel has raised the sandbar. There’s good reason for fish to fear the Rebel’s improved features. Namely, the 72” bottom, reverse chines, extended bottom motor bracket, and 24° bow entry vee tapering to 14° deadrise at the transom. All the necessities are there, too: deluxe console, pedestal seating, walk-through windshield, and wide-open deck. The Rebel now feature a full 34” side height and wider 92” beam for increased freeboard and greater stability on the water — which amounts to approximately one foot of additional space on the interior. Stand inside and you’ll instantly experience how comfortable and safe this redesign feels, particularly when you lean far over to land a fish or lend a hand. Simple and roomy, the Rebel offers a level of quality and value that will surprise you. It’s priced lower than many other boats in its class, but measures up extremely well against them — especially where on-the-water performance is concerned. Jump in and hang on. The Rebel is always ready to go up to the mountain lakes for trout, the ocean bays for crabbing, or the big rivers for salmon.
NEW EXTENDED BOTTOM
The 188 Rebel now features Weldcraft’s innovative bottom extension and motor bracket. Unlike competitors’ “pod” attachments, Weldcraft extends the bottom hull sheet past the transom to create the industry’s strongest motor support. This design delivers the most efficient flow of water to the prop and reduces the chance of cavitation in tight turns.
