Evinrude's new ROGUE is here! -the sea is calmer already. That's the way it seems when you're in a Rogue. Its Gull Wing hull helps cancel out the motion of the waves - instead of adding to it, the way conventional hulls do. Her stabilizing sponsons resist the tendency to lurch and wallow -even in a following sea. There's no need to oversteer in one direction to overcome a yaw in another. The Rogue is a roomy 19-footer - but she feels more like a 25-footer. At trolling speed she rides easily and comfortably erect. A finger on the wheel keeps her on course. At speed, she rides atop her own bow wave. The bigger the seas, the greater the shock-absorbing lift from the scientifically contoured spray-riding tunnels molded into her hull. She's right at home out where the charter boats roam. Her 200 hp V-8 purrs along with quiet authority and mi serly economy. Flat out, she'll do an impressive 40 mph. The Rogue is a party boat. Perfect for fishing parties when equipped with optional rear seat with built-in bait well and cooler. Back home, she's a plush pleasure boat for sociable entertaining. But: a word of caution. Don't ride in a Rogue unless you intend to own one. The experience is apt to be habit-forming. See the Rogue at your Evinrude dealer,listed in the Yellow Pages under "Outboard Motors." Catalog free.
