Pacific 24

I want one!! These boats are seriously well designed. I was having a look at this one; a section of the a frame comes off, which you can insert into a hole under a hatch, and acts as an emergency tiller! Apparently this one will do upwards of 50 knots. Nice!

nice

I'm not the biggest fan of jet drives but this one does look impressive.

I really like the samson post on the transom. Hell of a lot easier for most tasks.

Only 10 years to wait and they'll be on the 2nd hand market? Did see a jet pac 22 from an Antarctic survy boat a while back for sale tempting but was expensive.

Saw a neat mod to an outdrice pac 22 the chap had moved the console to on top of the engine cover made a very useful amount of space up front. Went back to BoatsnOutbords but it had gone so could not find a piccy.

Similar to this one? Works very well I think. There was one on ebay last week that a bloke had done the same to, and put seating for 6 up the front.

Precisely, it's now the vapour build of choice for me. The Land Rover is going to be converted to diesel so a diesel jet rib is not a bad idea. Saw the ebay one, makes a big difference on usable space up front.
