Halmatic Arctic 22 Data

Hi, does anyone have the manual, drawings or data for the Halmatic Arctic 22 RIB?

Failing that does anyone know the max transom weight for the A22?

Has anyone on here re-powered with four stroke(s)?

Cheers in advance?

Will

Will, Originally they had twin Suzuki DT140 2 strokes on with the MoD then twin Mariner 135 2 strokes but they are pretty twitchy with that sort of power. So they can take a fair bit of weight. Never fitted one with 4 strokes, but have put 115 optimax's on the back and they are just about right. They do take in a little water especially in reverse, with the weight on but with a flooding transom its not a problem. Cant remember the exact speeds but have got some trial info at work which you can have.

I could be mistaken but I think it's Pete7 on here that did have a PDF of the user manual.

We get about 35kts with a Honda f135. Well balanced boat with that type of weight.

Re-engined mine a few years ago, looked at putting 4 stroke yams on the back but they were just too bulky, went for twin 150 etecs instead. Not sure I'd like to put much more weight on the transom.

Hi Will,

Etecs have been been good, had an issue with water in the fuel but that had nothing to do with the engines. Check and make sure your underfloor tank doesn't have any hairline cracks!

With 22" props I get just under 50 knots, thats on very flat water and it would be very easy to end up with the mother of all chine walks. I generally cruise at around 35 knots, with 19" props, engines are running at just over 4,000 revs at this speed, using about 9 - 10 gallons an hour. Thats with the boat well loaded up with divers and kit.

Cheers,

Gordy

ps If your thinking of going for the etecs, speak to John Price at Ribstuff.com. He came up with an excellent deal for me.

Thanks for that Gordy.

Is that 9 - 10 gallons per hour total or per engine?

Cheers

Will

Thats total, bear in mind that if you open her all the way up you can double that figure!

It's a cracking looking setup! Are the tubes still just clear of the water when at rest?

Hi Will

The tubes are just sitting in the water right at the stern. I'm out this weekend so will check the fuel figures again.

Hi Will,

Spent the weekend diving from Craobh, with 6 divers, kit and spare cylinders, 30 knots has the engines running at 3800 revs, gives a smudge over 8 gallons an hour. Measured it the old fashioned way. Filled the tanks timed the running then noted the refill when we came back in.

Hope this helps.

Hi Gordon

Thanks for that, very useful info. I have a quote from John for the Etecs, so just stewing over the final decision.

Cheers

Will

Hi Gordon

Thanks for all your help. We have now ordered a counter rotating pair of 150s from John with Icon controls. We have had to have white 25" engines as Icon controls are not available as a factory fit option on the 20" models. We will have to raise the transom by five inches but a friend of mine was head naval architect at Halmatic and he says it will be fine.

I don't think it will look as good as yours but he ho.

Thanks again.

Will

Hi Will,

Glad your sorted, think having the transom higher will work well, will be interested to hear what the Icon controls are like.

Look forward to seeing her all finished.

Cheers,

Gordy

Edit - wait till its finished, on your own go from a standing start and floor the throttles, I guarantee a huge smile!!
