21' Olympic '90, any other owners out there?
Last season I set out to find an Olympic for use in PWS mostly. I located one in Tacoma, took an amazing ride on the Ferry from Haines to Bellingham, and towed the boat back first week of October. It is the Alaskan Bulkhead model, and has a 150 Yamaha.
I am refitting it to be ready in the spring, installed the new Yamama T9.9 high thrust kicker, new electronics, anchor roller/anchor, etc. I am rewiring everything, installing dual bilge pumps, adding seacocks to replace ball valves and thru-hulls for the head, etc.
Are there other Olympic owners or former owners out there? I was wondering what sort of cruise performance/top end I could expect out of it, it may be a little on the underpowered side as the boat is rated for up to 225HP. I know they have a good reputation.
The boat is build like tank, it should be an outstanding, sturdy, good riding rig for PWS, I moved up from a 20' Phantom Jet. Here is a picture of "Bubbles" when I picked her up.
I pm'ed you. let me know if you need more info
