  1. I'm having Dan at Rolls Axle build my trailer, I asked him if there was an issue with them floating. He said the older ones had some issues, 1999 or older, he said they corrected the issue by adding more weight to the back end. Rolls Axle is the only innovative trailer out there, it is a lifetime trailer. I'm also getting stainless steel hubs, so it should be good to go for a long time.

    Pathfinder 22 purchasing advice.

    I owned a 2016 2200 TE, awesome boat. It's a hardcore fishing machine, nice live wells and a huge release well that I have put 40" snook in to move them away from porpoises before releasing them.
  3. I'm going to have a 2400 TRS built for me and wanted to get some opinions on trailers. I have owned a 2200 TE and a 2400 TRS and both had Ameratrail trailers which worked fine. The only issue I had was with the 2400 trailer, the front cross member wouldn't clear steep boat ramps, I would have to change hitches and use a 7 " rise to clear steep ramps. All my research says the Rolls Axle is probably the best made trailer out there, I like how they through bolt the bunks and don't use springs or torsion bars. Any thoughts? Thanks.
  4. I am selling a high quality, never used Sunbrella full boat cover w/ stainless steel strap buckles. This cover was made for my 2019 2400 TRS w/ a factory hard t-top. I am selling the boat cover only, I sold the boat along with the engine, t-top and power pole covers. I am ordering a new 2400 TRS with a factory tower and no longer need this cover, very well made. Paid $ 2,500, will sell for $ 1,200. Located in Port Charlotte, FL 954 309-9112 If interested contact me and I will text or email you the photos, so you can open them properly, sorry about the photos appearing sideways, I tried and couldn't fix it.
  5. I'm having a half tower built for my 2019 Pathfinder 2400 TRS, I'm selling my factory installed hard fiberglass t-top, it is anodized aluminum with 6 upper rod holders including 2 kingfish rod holders, 8 lower console rod holders, a front and rear LED spreader light, 3 LED overhead lights, navigation lights and 2 storage compartments. Very nice in new condition, always kept under cover. I also have a custom made sunbrella top for it, which is included. The boat is in Port Charlotte, 954 309-9112. ( $ 3,500.00 ) This t-top will fit all of Pathfinder's 2019 models, except the 2600 TRS, it will also fit the 2018 2500 HPS.
  6. I posted cruising speed, fuel economy and WOT speed in the other 2018 Pathfinder TRS w/250 SHO post by Kristian, you didn't look hard enough, it's in the other post.

    2018 24 trs with 250 sho prop ideas ?

    I ran my 2019 2400 TRS w/ 250 SHO today using the Power Tech OFX19 4 blade prop under a light load. Just myself and a 1/2 tank of fuel, no trolling motor, at WOT and jack plate set at 3 and the trim at 4, I was able to get to 5800 rpms and 52.2 mph, I fueled the boat afterwards and top it off with 31.5 gals of fuel, so I got those numbers with 40 gals of fuel in the boat, so with between 10 to 20 gals of fuel in the tank I should gain another mph.
  9. I have a 2019 2400 TRS powered with a 250 SHO, I'm thinking of removing the hard t-top and adding a tower. Anybody have a newer 2400 TRS set up with a tower, just wondering how it affected the performance, speed, fuel economy, any porpoising issues? I'm running an OFX19 4 blade prop and getting 5700 rpms and 50.5 mph WOT. My dealer mentioned it may porpoise with a tower, any feedback is appreciated. Didn't know where I could post this, so I hope this is the right forum, thanks.

    Just ordered 2019 22 TRS HT 250 Sho best prop

    Lee Williams your dealer is going to put a Powertech prop on it, unless you ask for a different prop, you would then pay the difference in price. The difference between a Powertech OFX19 4 blade compared to a Merc Bravo 1FS 20 or 19 pitch is about $ 200.00. Same goes for a Yamaha SWS prop. If you're looking for overall speed, it's hard to top the Merc Bravo props. I would also call Powertech and ask for Marcus, he should have all kinds of performance data on 2200 TRS equipped like yours running a Powertech prop. I have a Powertech OFX19 4 blade on my 2400 TRS, hard top and a 250 SHO and at WOT I turn 5700 and 50.5 mph. I'm happy with the performance and ended my search for a better performing prop.

    2018 24 trs with 250 sho prop ideas ?

    Had my 2400 TRS built for me and delivered in November, it has a factory hard fiberglass t-top, two 10' power poles, Minn Kota 112 lb. thrust Rip Tide trolling motor and a Yamaha 250 SHO. The dealer put a Power Tech OFX20 4 blade prop on it. After the initial break in I took it to WOT at 3" on the jackplate and 4 on the trim, that is what seemed to get me max speed. With a full tank of fuel, myself and another male friend on the boat I could only turn the prop at 5200 rpms and 45 mph. I went back to the dealer and replaced the prop with an OFX18 4 blade, I was able to get the rpms up to 5900 and speed up to 48.5 mph at WOT running everything the same way, I wasn't crazy about the separation gap between the rpms and speed. Another downside was when I lowered the jackplate to 2 " at 4000 rpms my fuel economy was not good, I was getting about 2 mpg. I didn't like the numbers and returned the prop for an OFX19 4 blade, right away I felt like this was the right prop. At WOT my rpms dropped to 5700 and my speed increased to 50.5 mph, when I lowered the jackplate to 2 " at 4000 rpms, I was able to get 3.1 mpg at around 34 mph. I know if I ran the boat with 1/2 tank of fuel and a light load I could probably increase my speed to maybe 52 mph. I'm happy with this set-up.

    2400 TRS boarding ladder advice needed.

    Any advice would be appreciated. I'm having a 2400 TRS being built, I decided to have the factory transom mount dual 10 ft. Power poles, to do this they will be removing the platform ladder. I like the transom mount on the Power poles as opposed to using brackets, I think they are sturdier that way and it's just my preference. I have been trying to find an engine mount boarding ladder that I can mount to the outside engine bolts, but it looks like I can't with the Atlas jack plate. I have looked at TH Marine twist ladder, RR extend ladder and Hahn All Aboard ladder. They are all good ladders, but I can't mount to the outer engine bolts, I have to mount between the engine and jack plate. Anybody have this issue, thanks in advance.
