Atlantic 21 ?

Hi all
I will start by adding a previous link and you will be aware of what i have gone and done. http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?...light=atlantic

I love my Pacific 22, i have owned it for nearly 7 years, i wanted a bit more speed but like the all weather capabilty, so i thought a bit of a project would be a good idea.

I saw this with the engine bay and considered fitting a 250- 300hp diesel (petrol not allowed if i want to code it) but it has as far as i can make out it has never an inboard fitted.

I have a spare set of refurbished Pacific 22 tubes and a complete Sternpowr outdrive (but it's a 103 and not a 101) so a couple of the expensive bit i have, the main reason for buying.

It almost looks a bit of a hybrid, it could be used as either, if i dont fit an inboard it will have a pair of outboards 100's -150's.
It has a large fuel tank under the console but the space is bigger than that of my pacific.

Console is a bit of a mess, it has been glassed over so the surface is rough to say the least, i will fit a new console but will try and not go into quite as much details as Mr Pete 7

I have now removed the deck, it had been fibre glassed over (badly) and let water in around the edges, it got under and rotted out the wood, it had also been repaired on the Stbd side and has been filled with expanding foam i have up load some pics

More later

Now i don't think i could be so lucky as to have got a 75, but if i have
ripped all the expanding foam out tonight and it has had a smack on the rear Stbd side, so angle grinder and fiberglass this weekend.
How well does yours go with that engine on it, i was trying for twin 100hp +.

A bit of an update, i went down to take some measurements today, after lifting the deck and clearing out the expanding foam, it showed that i need some teak strips for the sides so i can fix the tubes securely, cos it's a bit rotten and it seams point less not doing the job right.

So i took the measurments and things didn't add up, so i measured the hull deck length and it comes out at 22 feet, which seems a bit long for a 21 ft rib, when i add the tube overhangs it looks like i have got myself a 24 footer, so now i am wondering is it a Pacific, Atlantic or an Artic.

Does anyone have any pics or info on Halmatic 24 ft ribs so i can try and narrow down to which hull i have.

Cheers
Ian
