  • New wanna be shark!

    Hello to all. I have been circling around on this site for some time. I thought is was time to move in, lol. I think this site is going to be a great resource as I finally get going on my boat resto/refit. I've got a 93 241 with notched transom. I go to pick up motors this weekend. Their 2002 ox66 250's in mint condition. My first question is, Will I be over powered? I heard these hulls love HP. second question is weight. Will I be stern heavy?

    Welcome. You have one of the best hulls out there. Not many available. I would think you will be a little stern heavy and yes over powered. Still worth a shot if you have the motors. What other projects have you gotten done? We use Imgur to post pictures.

      Thanks snappergapper for the welcome. I have been messing around with boats since 2000. It started with a key west 15cc, great little boat, got hooked and started learning as much as I can about boat repair. I haven't done much actual boat repair other than Minor cosmetic things and rebedding hardware. I had the transom done on a wellcraft v20 back in 2001. Turned out good, but lost my butt when I sold that boat. I now have this Project in front of me. Been sitting on this 241 hull for 3 yrs, lol; I finally got the pieces in place to start!

        M241 Plans as of now: Have the transom evaluated by a pro, pull tank and check. Paint the whole boat, powder coat the aluminum stuff, hang motors, go fish. Lol I know it ain't that easy but I'm going all in. Checkbook look out! Just talked to insurance people. One big carrier said no on the HP, 400 vs 500. One said no problem. Any input on what to look for much appreciated.

          Well I got the motors sitting in the garage. Photos coming soon. I plan to use Imgur for photos. I'm hoping to splash this 241 in one year.

            Welcome to the group!

            Here are some thoughts:

            I had a 76 254 which had 2x 225hp evinrudes on a bracket.

            The boat ran like a scalded ape. easy 50 knots with a full tuna tower..("ludicrous speed"!)

            I suspect that the 250s will be heavier...I am not sure about the placement of the scuppers and bait well on 90s hulls, but I had to close all the outgoing plumbing and scuppers (except bilge discharges) because the stern sat lower. The deck level in rear of the boat was at or just slightly below the water line, even after moving the batteries to the anchor locker to offset the balance. (Had four grp 27 batteries up there). add a couple fat guys in the stern fishing and the deck level was def. lower than the water.

            This was a concern because the in deck livewell had to have any water pumped into it mechanically pumped back out of the hull. I ended up sealing a marine shower sump and routing the livewell into it...it had a bigger pump than the pump that fed the baitwell.

            Also the boat was no longer self bailing. A huge source of worry in a heavy sea. The prev. owner had closed the transom, so a following sea was not as much of a concern as was taking green water over the bow and swamping the boat. Again, ANY water coming in had to be mechanically pumped out.

            IF you are set on the bigger/heavier motors, you may want to consider bracketing them with a bracket designed with a lot of additional floatation. I had a stainless marine bracket, and the 'tank' of the bracket was small and really did not add significant add'l buoyancy, or at least enough to keep the hull at the designed waterline.

            Or alternatively, hang only one engine and store the other for spare/replacement...a 250 should push a 24' boat just fine.
