Re: PC24 vs EC24 questions.

What about the offshore designs? [/quot The answer to that is pretty simple. I don't find any offshore designs that interest me, and why would I need an offshore design anyway? Offshore implies bad weather and high seas. Something I would never be involved in anyway. Very frustrated that this has t...

Re: PC24 vs EC24 questions.

I found this to be relevant: EC24 - How not for offshore is it? Actually, I am less concerned about large waves and bad weather (because I will not be out in it), than I am of having a wall tent semi permanently erected on deck acting like a drone chute or a wind vane. I am drawn to efficiency, but ...

Re: PC24 vs EC24 questions.

Browndog, I pretty much agree with you and I like the used boat idea...if what I wanted was available. Also, this would not be my first boat. I have built a few as well as many airplanes. Generally I find that when people ask "how long did that take to build?", I think they are asking the ...

Re: PC24 vs EC24 questions.

"Those lights catamarans or pontoons boats are great for inshore fun not for offshore." Naturally, I need to ask why. Surely these designs are not so weak if properly fabricated that they cannot handle mild weather. I don't think anyone would take these out if a storm were coming or waves ...

Re: PC24 vs EC24 questions.

Found this in an earlier reply for the EC24. I will copy it here for information sake.

-20" from under the deck to the DWL. Cross beams are 6" high = 14" under cross beams.

Re: PC24 vs EC24 questions.

I appreciate your help here. 16 inches of clearance on the PC24 would be between the water and under side of the deck. That might be the minimum for my use as i have seen 10 foot+ wakes behind some of the larger yachts, on flat water, in the UP. Something to think about. Also, I believe the max beam...

Re: PC24 vs EC24 questions.

"I have done quite a lot of great lakes fishing and I have NEVER seen anyone on a pontoon boat out in the main lakes." -I have seen pontoons, which these are not. I have also seen people regularly (and safely) going out in boats that are much smaller than the C19. Safety is a serious issue...
