Nice lookin boat man. How do you like the jet drive motor? Im thinking about buyin my boat with one on it, could you post some more pics of the rear of the boat so i can see the setup of it. Ive never seen one on smaller boats like that and just curious to see how it looks. Thanks

I like it so far. Great take off power it uses more gas then a prop but not alot. Yea ill take some more photos. Mine is a tunnel hull designed for jets. Im not sure what you mean by smaller boat this one is 24 feet long with a 72 inch wide floor.

Now that's a Jon boat! What does something like that go for? Don't see them around much. Congrats! :thumbsup:

I see the PA registration decal. Did you pick that up at Ducky's in Middletown perhaps? A friend has a 2072. His makes my 1650 look like a baby. Can't imagine the room in the 2472, although I wouldn't mind finding out.

Nice boat. Good luck with it.

Get your self a trolling motor,bow mount, and you will be set for waterfowl. It makes setting and picking up deaks a snap,and quiet too. :yes: You plan on taking the whole duck club with you?

What conditions are you running in that you went with the jet over a prop?

That's a big boat. Are you planning on using that for duck hunting? Most jon boats I see of that size get a deck and lights on the front for bow fishing.

It runs in a rocky bottom river that varies from 20 feet deep to les than 6 inches of water. And i can run this boat in about 3 inches of water on full plane

My group will be upgrading to a 2472 before next season, hopefully. Sometimes we hunt with 5 guys, 2 of us 180-190lbs, 260lbs, 280lbs, 320lbs. Add in 1-2 dogs, hardside blind, spread of up to 200 duck and goose floaters (not normally though), electronics/motion decoys, cookware, cooler, blind bags, guns...etc....you're looking at a lot of weight. The SeaArk 1860 we use right now can barely do it, takes 2 trips if we bring as much stuff as listed above, but another issue is if the wind is more than 13-14mph out of the SW at the area we hunt the most, a semi V aluminum 18 footer isn't enough boat to handle those conditions. Also don't have the luxury of driving into the waves at a preferred angle, have to stay in the channel to avoid hitting shallow water obstacles.

Because I can. I dont like being scrunched up when hunting. I cannhunt four to five guys comfortably. And the size is more than welcome when I am hunting the finger lakes

That big boat has got to be a pig with that small of a motor on it.

Yeah, I'd say threedogs is right. :yes:
The 2472 I'll be hunting out of next year will have a 225 Suzuki on it.
But if you don't have to travel too far, whatever works for you.
