  • North River Question

    Does anyone that has a NR Offshore have a door on the side of their boat instead of a transom door for boat access? Just looking for pros & cons for locating on there as putting one in the transom would be a major relocation effort for the back of my boat. Thanks

    Yes, I have a door on the side of my NR Offshore. The pros are being able to haul large Halibut through it. Another pro would be boarding from a dock. The problem is most docks are tall enough that just stepping on the gunnel is more convenient. The only cons are: which side of the boat to put the door on and that I really don't use it enough to justify the cost.

        Thanks for the response. I checked the height of the Seward docks against the height of my gunnel & its only about 9" difference. I was gonna go port side because there is way less doo-doo under the gunnel there.
