    Have a 24' seaway CC setup with a 135 Honda . Absolutely love this hull & power combination.

    Nice clean uncluttered low maintenance layout. Very stable & nice running boat. Unbelievably fuel efficient. Fuel burn averages between (3-4) gph.

    Boat is setup with a T-top, console with porta potti, & coffin box up in the bow. Cruise the boat at 4200 rpm +/- at about 22 kt +/-. Top speed is in the low 30 kt area.

    Cant speak highly enough of this hull setup with the 135 honda. Have run this boat 30 miles offshore

    I look forward to connecting with other seaway owners on this forum to compare notes with.

    The wealth of knowledge willingly shared on this site has really helped me out a lot. Hopefully I can contribute & help others in the future.

    I have a 24 hardtop sport. Same hill but with a cabin. Have a 130 exec hanging on the stern.

    Great looking boat. What do you and other 24 owners have for scuppers? I have the standard 1" ping pong ball type . They have never leaked but drain slow and tend to clog during wash down. I have considered adding a second pair and installing screens. Your thoughts?

    I have the standard ping pong ball. They do clog with leaves and debris. Never to the point no water drains. There are trees and high brush next to the dock. But they keep your feet dry when standing in the stern.

    Great boat. Nice layout.
    I have the 24 Coastal. The scuppers are rectangular with a flap. Much larger than the ping-pong style. Deck drains really fast and nothing seems to clog. You can see the scupper in this shot to give a sense of the size.

    Sagamore,
    How far above the water do those scuppers sit while the boat is at rest?

    Hey, sorry for the delayed response. They sit about 2" above the water line at rest. In the photo above, the water line is about 1" below the top of my bottom paint, and the opening of the scupper is about an inch above that.

    Wow pretty lines and color scheme. Could I trouble you for a picture of the console-head area. The boat we are redoing would look great in this configuration if we could work out that detail. It was originally cabin forward lobster boat. Also, whose console bench seat is that? Looks top notch. Thank you

    I have a Seaway 24 CC on order! I got the hard T-top, trim tabs, Eastern Center Console (that makes the coffin box a bit shorter but adds a padded seat in front of the console, so the head opens on the side) They are going to install Garmin 942xs Chartplotter, Icom m-506, Honda 150. I am thinking about the fancy digital honda guages but since the engine is NMEA proficient I think I will just connect it to the Garmin for the digital readouts.
