SeaArk 2472

Postby nscochrane1009 » Mon Mar 03, 2014 9:09 pm

Thinking about buying the SeaArk 2472 for fishing/hunting on lakes in piedmont and fishing/hunting rivers and waterways at the coast. Even the sounds on calm weather days. Opinions? Experiences with the boat at all?

I have experience with the 1860 SeaArk, they're about as good as aluminum gets.
A friend of mine was gonna buy/upgrade to a 2472 this year, but since even boat hunting has gotten so ridiculously crowded in recent years in our area we are switching to fields.
If you have the $$$, go for it.

Test run one first. I've had one for 9 years. It's great in calm water or in a chop carrying a load, however it'll rattle your fillings in a chop no different than other jon boats.

This is a light load

I hunted out of one this past year that had the V-hull as opposed the modified-V. All around awesome boat. Handles big chop very well. I'm still tossing around buying one myself.

the 3 degree hulls might rattle your fillings....but the 15 degree hull would provide a nice ride....

they make several versions of the 24 ft 15 degree hull....

this one looks sweet: http://seaarkboats.net/coastal-v240-sc/

they also make a 7 degree hull as a nice compromise...but I am not sure it comes in 24 ft


good luck

Please tell me there is not a door on the dog kennel when on the water?

Note the lab sitting comfortably on the floor of the boat. :hammer:

It ain't my first rodeo bro, only a fool would kennel their pup on the water.

Here she is fixing to haul an 18' mud boat downriver.....after a 750 trailer ride. THIS is when she rides like a champ!

Yes I did see the dog on the floor of the boat but could not tell if there was another in the creat. There have been dog's lost due to their owners putting them in a creat while on the water. This site is here to share information and help others so I made the comment. Maybe should have phrased it a little differently but not ashamed for asking the question.

I have a 2072 and it is one tough boat. A little rough riding in a chop but it will handle more water than you think. But I'm usually running for the hill when it gets rough, not going out. That 24 is a beast! :thumbsup:

Change of plans, friend of mine ordered a 2472 hull and it'll arrive within 2 weeks. The only ones I've seen in person were at dealerships. Hopefully we won't have to boat hunt very much next season but when we do it'll be pretty awesome.
