    2019 Tower Pathfinder 2400 TRS...Lowered price

    Nice hole shot, WOT 50 mph @ 5600 RPM, 34 mph @ 4000 RPM and 3 mpg, full tank of fuel. Power Tech OFX 19 4 blade prop. If I ran a 3 blade prop, I could probably get another 2 mph.

    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.

    23 HPS or 24 TRS

    Thank you, I definitely wouldn't fish in todays conditions, glad to hear the 25 performed well.

    23 HPS or 24 TRS

    Yeah I agree linesider, my 2200 TE is an awesome boat to fish from, great deck design, but when the wind kicks up, it doesn't handle it very well. I keep hearing the 23 HPS eats it up, just trying to decide between the 23 HPS or 24 TRS, I really wish they still made the 24 TE. I am arranging a sea trial in the 23 HPS next week, I've been in a new 24 TRS in windy conditions and it did well, like a 24 ft should do. Hoping to find out if the 23 HPS rides more like the 22 TE or the 24 TRS or is just a different animal all together.
