So Memorial Day weekend got to put the new North River Seahawk 24.8Ft fitted with the 250HP diesel into Prince William Sound. Was a little let down buy the speed of the boat, was told, and expected it to cruse at 30-34 MPH. The reality I was only able to cruising at 26-30 MPH on the smoother water when I could find it lol. However the gas mileage what a very pleasant surprise, I was getting between 5.1 to 5.7 GPH on the three days of running. Was able to go to the light house on Hinchenbrook and return to Valdes for about $180 at 26-30 MPH. It was fitted with the Vertical Mount electric pot puller, thatís an awesome way to pull pots.
