Brand NEW Design for Outrigger Connection

Brand new Design for Outrigger Connection. Outrigger Connection just came out with a new boat. Sounds like a good idea to keep pushing the limits.

the question has to be asked.

will it have chines?

I bet it is a kneel down rudderless outrigger canoe that can probably outsprint and outsurf any current v1 out there?

It's not a rudderless, and I only just heard about it. The Name starts with a T or something.

In the June 2011 Pacific Paddler Magazine they have an ad on page 20 for their new OC-2 called the 22 (twenty-two). Uses the same ama/iakos as the current Stingray-2, but the length is longer at 25 feet. The upper deck lines are similar to the Osprey and the gunwhales are higher in the seat area giving the paddlers a more stable, dryer ride.

When I talked to them about the canoe earlier this summer, they said it was designed for more flatwater conditions. Less rocker than the Stingray-2.

Indar was right. They're calling it the "Torrent". NO chines. Looked about same length as the Zephyr but less volume. Bow area looked slimmed down.

I like the names' meaning.

the TORRENT! karel snuck out to magic island on tuesday to demo his boat. it looks awesome. the one he was using was white/gray fade to purple top, white hull, ferrari sticker on the back, and a small outrigger connection/torrent decal on the front. he said it was a little bigger than the osprey. the boat had cutouts in the footwells to help drain under the seat, a cutout behind the rear iako, a screw shut drain plug at the end, and 2 small vents behind the rudder. he said demos are almost ready, and custom colors are available.

what is the new TORRENT!!! based on? if they've eliminated chines the OC team must be going in a new design direction.

Maybe the chines are on the inside, just to trick you non-believers.....

I really think Outrigger Connection needs a contest to help them name their new canoe designs.

"Torrent" ?
"22" ?
"Osprey" ?

or course the best was the "Fuze" ??

Saying all that-I had a Stingray once. ;)

no chines ? round bottom then.
longer, less rocker.
Feels like tahitian "mana" to me. :-)

Do you people really think there are no chines on this boat?
