Pacific 22/24

Hi all
Is there anyone out there that has an old pac 24 or information about them.
Reason is a couple of years ago i bought a "atlantic 21" when i collected it, it looked a bit odd for an Atlantic, upon stripping off the deck there was an engine bay, so it must be a Pacific 22, not so bad can live with that, couldn't find a reasonable price diesel engine and having so much fun with my Humber with the 150 bolted to it's ass, the decision was made to make it an outboard boat, the transom was beefed up and now a pair of Honda 135's have been sourced.
Today was the day to fit the tubes, i have had a set in storage from before i bought the hull (reason for buying an Atlantic/Pacific) and belive it or not the tubes don't fit, they are about 2 foot to short, i am 100% the tubes i have are pac 22 one's from were they came from.
I am looking for hull length etc, i have done a search using yahoo and google but all that comes up is a jet drive and rear helm version, i am sure this is not one of them.
I thought it looked big but dont they all when out of the water and you are working on them.
Cheers in advance
Ian

I'm not sure if this is the rear helm version but there's a manual http://www.northernexposurerescue.or..._Resource.html here that may help.

Hi Ian.... We have just finished a 1997 Pac 24 project, but its a fair bit longer than that in reality and nothing like the dims for the newer ones (which are nearer 24 foot)..... As you say its a Jet /Rear Helm and a LOT bigger in every way than the Atlantic 21 project we have....you def couldn't confuse the two..... Happy to take measurements if it helped, but prob not???? Also, am looking for a set of sponsons for the 21 so could be interested if yours were to need a new home

Sorry not to be more help.....give me a call if you need dims am on the yard all day to day.

Hi Dan
thanks for replying, i am sure mine is older than yours, there is no signs of it ever being a jet drive and the engine bay doesn't look long enough to accept a six pot engine, i measured the hull length without the tubes it measures
22ft, i have the measurments for a Pac 22 and the hull length says 20ft and a half inch, is there any possibility that the very early Pac 22's were like your 24ft, over length

I have some pics on Photobucket Pacific 22 strip and rebuild pictures by ian-sw - Photobucket

I have some more on my phone i will add tonight, guess a call to Paul Tilley is on the cards for tomorrow to see if he can extend the tubes, will find out how much for a new set but i think that is going to be a bit expensive.

I will ask if there are any more tubes going spare from the place i got mine from, will let you know.
Cheers
Ian

Thanks Ian, that is much appreciated

Re the boat....that is a strange one.... Has the flat planing /beaching pad of the Atlantic.... But is def bigger, and that inboard.... Wonder if the chap at DD Pacifics could help? Have spoken with him a few times, he enjoys a chat

Sorry to be no help, but looks an interesting project

From memory and our records, there were a couple of P24's built in 1996 and the next batch were in the year 2000

The measurement around the outside edge of the flange from the bow to the transom showed a length of 6840mm

We do have in stock a couple of new P24 Mk 11 collars which have a slight stain on the surface of the fabric and were rejected by the customer, and are available at a reduced price if you are interested. They will need a small mosification to the attachments so that they will fit correctly onto the older Mk1 hulls Let me know if you are interested

Hi Chris
Do you know if any of the P24's were made with orange hulls, as mine is defenatly orange, how much are you looking for a set of collars, PM me if you don't want to say, not worried about the stains as they might get painted as Sea Start are asking for black tubes and not grey.
Cheers
Ian

Ian - might be worth ringing Atlantic college - they designed the boats origin A21s and made all sorts of different lay ups.

It's possible that they made some odd size ones whilst looking at the design upgrade from the 21s?

Ian, don't forget Halmatic when there were in Portchester did all sorts of odd development work, producing lots of different hulls. At 140k each to the RN you can do that sort of thing

During one visit I was asked not to photograph anything and not look to my right as we walked past one hull Wouldn't have minded but my escort knew I had just spent 20 years wearing the Queens uniform.
