24' St Clair Sheriff Rescue/dive open boat

Postby Maxrat » Fri Sep 01, 2017 2:49 pm

This is a 24' open center console boat used in conjunction with the 29'er we built them last year. This will be their go fast boat powered by a Yanmar 8LV twin turbocharged diesel and Hamilton 241 jet drive. It will support dive operations and search functions with a center console roof that is used as a spotting station.

Nice set up! What is the estimated top speed? Why did they choose a transmission? Keep the pics coming!!

With the transmission they get a true neutral which is good for dive operations but they also can back flush any weeds or debri with reverse. The gearing will be one to one.

You'll need something to keep those tanks from sliding out.
Will there be an air compressor on board to refill the tanks?
I used to scuba dive off boats a lot. It is probably already thought of but also a place for them to keep weight belts out of the way would be nice and place to hang wet suits.

Yea they have all that equipment. This boat is replacing one of their boats so they already have all that stuff. He just flew out 2 weeks ago and went over how they want it set up. It's a pretty cool build and they stand up to drive it and lean back onto a pedestal. We made it 15 years before we put a steering wheel in. This is the 1st. LOL

Why do you put cheesy trim tabs on your boats when Shawn could build them out of 1/4" plate for less money than the "kit?"

It's the same they have on all their other boats and wanted them all the same. I guess so they can interchange them if need be.

I cant find many P welds with trim tabs.This hull design does not need them.Got me thinking what is the reason for trim tabs, function of trim tabs I understand. Nice boat

Always top notch craftsmanship on this page. Really cool build. I do have one question though, how does the cooling to the engine work when the trans is in neutral? Another pump or just don't stay in neutral too long?

Good question Smoke. We always remove the raw water pump that comes on the engine because it robs hp and makes it harder to winterize. We make it so you can winterize our boats in about 20 seconds but in this case with a transmission we kept the raw water pump so you can idle as long as you want and not worry about overheating or burning up your exhaust hose with no water.
