Thread: 22' Olympics

    Default 22' Olympics

    Just an FYI. Local lodge is doing some upgrading. These are solid boats, with solid power, at what I think is an OK price. They've fished the outer coast of POW for years and years. Should get 10-12gph. Not a bad entry price to get into the SE AK saltwater game.

    Are you guys running the same air-ride seats like waterfall? That setup makes the pounding of the outcoast actually "enjoyable"! Can I ask what your new setup will be? Also, are those the same boats that the old sunnahea (sp) lodge used to run?

    I don't work for them, so I don't know what they are thinking as far as there new rigs. I'll be curious too! And yes, I'm pretty sure that Sunnahea ran that make/model. Catch a King ran em too, before they moved up to Northrivers. 22' Glass boats safely fished the W side of POW for years and years.

    I'm pretty sure that they don't have air ride seats. They are what they are.. a solid 22' boat, with good outboard power. If it's too rough for them, you probably don't want to be out there pleasure fishing anyway.

    Just passing this along. Given what a new 22' Hewes or similar goes for, you can catch a lot of fish out of one of these rigs, and not take a big hit on the pocketbook as far as interest payments goes on that bank note. I bet if you only knew the fish that came aboard each boat over the years, it'd be staggering.

    225 Optimax burning 10 - 12 gph? Really? I'm sure these are fine boats, but I think that is an EXTREMELY optimistic estimate...

    I run a 200 opti OB on my 24' wooly alaskan II and I can easily get 7-8 gph at 25-28 mph. Not sure how the 225 works w/ these hulls, but I think it's a reasonable guess.

    Just talked to a buddy last night who's got a fuel flow gauge on one of these exact set ups. 11.8 gph at 4250ish RPMs.
