    Default north river boat does it have foam under floor????

    I bought a 2002 22' North River Commander (Ranger) 3/4 hard top just a few weeks ago and I love it. It is great for my family my daughter and wife love the comfort of the boat and have been having a great time fishing. But I am wondering a few things about the boat.

    Like if it has foam under the floor that may be water logged?

    How many RPM's I should be hitting?

    What kind of fuel economy should I be getting?

    I want to get a fixed mount kicker mount and can't find any?

    How do you know if your jet needs to be rebuilt or reshimmed?

    thank's

    What engine do have? What jet do you have?

    Guessing should be running around 3400 at cruise and burning about 15-20 or so gallons/hour when cruising.

    It is likely that is has foam in the floor. Helps with noise, floatation, and vibration.

    Any boat over 20 feet does not require to be foamed, but as said above for sound some foam them, you will have to remove a floorboard to verify if your boat has foam or not.

    PM me with your HIN# and I'll get you the specs on the boat if possible as the dealer for NR. Let us know what engine and jet you're running and we can give you more specs on what rpm and fuel consumption you should be seeing. If they're running high it's the tell tale that your impeller needs a rebuild. We've also built numerous kicker mounts if you want to bring the boat by for a quote.

    Your cruise rpms should be anywhere from 3400-3700 rpm.

    For a fixed motor mount you will have to get with someone that welds aluminum and have one built for your boat.

    With the 350 you're most likely running the T2.4 impeller and should be seeing 4100-4300 WOT. You should be cruising with a light load at 30mph as Bronco said around 3400. If your more than that it's probably time for a rebuild.
