1952 Trojan "Off-Shore" Angler
Deep Water Fishing & Family Runabout

1952 Off-Shore Angler

Here at last is an outboard boat to take you to blue water and bring you back again. Now, with an outboard, you can fish the same waters - in safety - as the large party-boats do. Extra depth and beam, plus continuous bow-to-stern flare for dryness, give you a low priced boat with all the sea-going qualities of the larger Trojan Sea Queens. And Trojan's superior bottom form provides that high performance which gets you there and back in a hurry. Easy to row, too.

Sturdy construction plus smart styling makes the Off-Shore Angler an excellent family runabout. All-mahogany accessories such as forward deck, center deck and seat backs will dress up its roomy hull . . . match its appearance with its top-notch performance. Accessories may be added at any time and are easily installed by your dealer or by yourself.

Because actual boat building is an art, we completely assemble the hull and do not offer the Off-Shore Angler "knocked down". This assures you of having a boat that is "right". If you can wield a brush you can do everything necessary. Just a few hours of "tinkering" and your boat is complete. Spend a pleasant evening or two getting it ready to go and you're off to years of enjoyment.

10 M.P. motor planes it along at 30 M.P.H. Tough framing and one-piece bottom give the strength and rigidity so necessary for the larger motors. Its fast Trojan lines plus construction featuring two transom knees and two full-length keels, give you the speed and endurance for unlimited fast-boat thrills. Two deep runners on the bottom cut down skids at high speeds for maximum controllability.

The 1952 Trojan Off-Shore Angler is available completely assembled but in an unfinished state. All of the "hard" work has been done for you. The hull is complete. Just add seats and other trim. You can go boating the day you receive your ready-to-paint Trojan Off-Shore Angler if you want to.

Quality materials throughout assure long life for the Trojan Off-Shore Angler. All framing is of selected white oak, except transom, which is solid Philippine mahogany. Planking is marine grade fir plywood . . . 14" on sides and 3/4" 5-ply on bottom. Bottom is one piece from chine to chine, eliminating keel joint and possible leaks. All joints are glued with synthetic resin glue for maximum water resistance. Fastenings are brass for salt water use.
