Not quite finished rigging but we've got some cool stuff going on our new Pacific Northwest 2320 demo boat. She's mostly running out of Friday Harbor in WA State's San Juan Islands. We still need to rig a second plotter/sounder and a Yamaha 9.9 kicker with tie in to the main. I'll post more pics when she's complete. The SeaDek just went on as a promo and it's good stuff. I especially like the gunwale bolster/combing pads. It make the back deck a lot more comfortable on long days.

Nice! Is that coaming pad from parker or sea dek? I need one of those made.
We have made combing pads for many boats including Parkers. SeaDek is a great comber that does not bottom out.

Thanks! The dash ain't up to Blue Seas Fab level, but it'll do for now. Probably won't put a tank on this one but who knows. We hope to sell it at the Seattle Boat Show after fishing our January Salmon derbies. She runs like a raped ape with the 300 Yamaha, but we're going to add Bennett drop fins to the tabs and a Permatrim. Inexpensive mods that will help her fulcrum forward. Maybe a 4 blade prop. I've driven the boat on multiple 150 mile round trips and feel very comfortable doing so. These boats can run 70 plus miles out for Albacore without carrying extra fuel. A lot of boat in a economical package.

Permatrim and rev 4 - 15p or 17p are a MUST! I have both and it makes a world of difference. I hope to not have to test the 70 mile distance this Saturday but it was 67mi the Saturday before... so I guess we will see.

Even though this boat is usually moored in Friday Harbor, I run it to Anacortes a lot, and I can meet you for a ride in the boat. We've got another 2320 available in Anacortes right now too if you want to check that out. The demo will get hauled out October 3rd for a kicker install and a couple other things. It'll be there for showing for awhile. PM me for more info, contact. Thanks!

That looks awesome! Any insight into how the SeaDek would work on an aluminum boat? I am planning a new build and am thinking of putting SeaDek in the cockpit. My main goal is to keep my dogs from burning their feet on a hot day.

SeaDek works great on aluminium boats. We have done a few, from duck boats to swamp boats. It helps keep the deck cool, gives you traction, acts as anti-fatigue and helps reduce noises from walking and dropping things on the deck.

I am still just window shopping at this time, seeing what features different models have. It will be most likely a year or two before I am a serious buyer. Basically just gives me something to do on Saturdays when my wife is at work. I wouldn't want someone to make special accommodations just to show us something for reference, that is what the boat show is for. I feel a little guilty going to the dealers and having the salesmen take time to go show me what is on the lot when I am just looking, even though that is part of their job.

All of that being said, if my wife were to go with me one of these weekends, I will check to see if you are going to have it in Anacortes that day and stop by.

Just curious, I've seen online the "new" 2320 have a factory bait tank in the portside corner; how come this one doesn't have it?
