Blue Lightning Workboat


The 18' aluminum, Blue Lightning, is a stable platform for many tasks on the water, including electrofishing, bathymetric mapping and SCUBA diving. The boat can be easily and quickly modified to perform many tasks.

Its shallow draft, coupled with its outboard jet motor, allows its use in shallow, near shore areas as well as in rocky rivers. Its full roller trailer permits the boat to be launched in areas where ramps are poor or nonexistent.
