Default 24 banana setback?

Sounds good. I usually run Long pond in lakeville. Don't get to the ocean much but would like to. I was wondering what everyone is running for set back on the 24s with twin 200s. I am currently running 2 240s with Bob's 4" hydrojackers cles and 27 counter mazco re3s. Want to get the most out of it right now getting an honest 74 on gps with nosecones 1.5" bellows hull. Wouldn't mind getting 80 out of it but engines are maxed out for mods right now.

Are your lower units (rotating in) so the downward thrust of the prop blade is towards each other or out and away so the thrust vector is father apart, (rotating out)?

I heard that my old 34 footer is in Massachusetts. If anyone knows how to get in touch with the owner, please let him know he is invited to come for the day on the Bay.


The date has been set for 2018. A cruise around Narragansett Bay will be held on Saturday August 11th with a rain date of Sunday the 12th.

Morning meeting at the state ramp in Oakland Beach Warwick, RI and a cruise down the west side of the bay past Bonnet Shores and out in the ocean around the tip of Jamestown island and then back up the East side of the bay into Newport Harbor.

After a slow cruise around Newport we head north towards Battlesihp Cove in Fall River and have lunch at the Cove restaurant.

After lunch and distribution of the new Banana Boat design tee shirts, everyone is free to end the day however they want, the run is officially over.

As the date gets closer, we will post definite times to meet and leave from the ramp.
