Odd Man Rush is another of the wonderful boats that Ranger Tugs has been building for Pacific Northwest cruisers for several decades. She only has 150 hours on her 150 hp Volvo Penta diesel and is ready for her next adventure. I had the pleasure of delivering her from her home in Port Ludlow to my office here on Bainbridge Island and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The wind was blowing 15 to 18 knots from the south with about a 2-foot chop and the boat was very comfortable running at 15.5 knots. With the trim tabs adjusted she rode like a much larger vessel. The Garmin autopilot was very happy driving and I was left to steer around the flotsam and jetsam, of which there was quite a bit.
If you’re looking for an affordable small cruiser that has the ability to run right past the trawlers and still have the creature comforts of a cruising boat, check out this cool boat. She is berthed in front of my office here in Eagle Harbor at Winslow Wharf Marina on Bainbridge Island. This boat has the optional canvas cockpit enclosure but she does NOT have a trailer.
