    Exclamation My New To Me Boat

    I have finally upgraded from my old 22ft SeaRunner to an 07 24ft North River Offshore with twin 175 Suzuki's. It's kinda sad to see someone drive away from the house towing the old SeaRunner, but it was time to move up. Hopefully the picture comes thru on this post as I have not had a lot of luck posting pics for some reason. 24 NR Offshore.jpg

    Between re-rigging & the four letter word that pays the bills, I'm not sure if I'll make the opener but I hope not to be too far behind it.

    Thanks Mel I'll let you know how it turns out. Gotta get an nmea network setup so I can monitor the engines & see what the sweet spot is for fuel burn. I'm thinking maybe less than 4000 rpm.....

    Nice! Would like to know what you thoughts are on it once you get to put it to use?? I am planning on having one built down in Seattle next year possibly. Looking into the 29'.

    Great motors too; what pitch props are on it? Stainless?

    I'm guessing that's correct. The 25.5' Cuddy sweat spot was in that rpm range cruising at 32mph getting about 2.2mpg. with the merc 150s. If you know anyone looking for a 24' OS send them our way I have a lead on a 2014 model we can get shipped up.
