Striker is a waterproof, one-man, yellow raft shaped like a half crescent. It has an engine in the back, two paddle-wheels on the sides, and a small sail in the back. Everything is linked to the main seat in the middle of the raft. In the manga, it has a black sail, while it is white in the anime. The Whitebeard Pirates' Jolly Roger is painted on its sail and flag.
When Ace and Masked Deuce were shipwrecked on Sixis, Deuce built a raft named Striker for them to leave. Around three to four years ago, when Ace went to Wano Country, he used Striker to leave Onigashima.
Striker was first shown during Ace's fight with Baroque Works Billions' ships. As Ace used his "Fire Fist" to annihilate the fleet, the Striker dove under the water, and Ace jumped over the wreckage. Then as the craft reemerged, Ace got back on and left.
