Default Pair Marine/Sea Ox Owners Thread

I see other manufacturer threads so I figured what the hell! Before I purchased I reached out to a few owners and since then Iíve heard from a couple potential buyers. This should be a beneficial thread.

Lets see your mods, hear your questions and share ideas.

I havenít done much other than install a second Simrad, and EVO3 and a compass.

I would be interested to hear what prop everyone is running, specially running the 300 on a jack plate on the 24. Iíve got a 4 blade power tech currently but am still experiencing some ventilation.

This is with the Powertech, solid numbers against a strong current. Just have to get a better bite.

This thread seems to be a very good idea. Have appreciated your posts, notes through time. I’m waiting on my 21 to get done, and looking forward to using it. Debating in my mind about what electronics to use. Would very much like to try Furuno, but Bryan and his guys were not thrilled. Gonna plan on a fish bag for bigger stuff, and a cooler for little ones. Probably a claw anchor and 15 to 20 feet of chain. Fun to think about it, and looking forward to what others say. You the man.

I have no experience in Furuno. My Pair came with the Simrad Cruise 9 which is just okay. I added the Simrad NSS9 Evo3 and LOVE it. It's now connected to my NMEA 2000 network which is pretty sweet. Next time I pull the boat I plan to add two transducers to the network, a through hull and side scan.

My last boat had both a Garmin (loved the GPS but hated the FishFinder) and a Humminbird (loved the Fishfinder, hated the GPS) So far the Simrad blows both out of the water. (disclaimer that the Evo3 was more than both the Garmin and Humminbird combined, they were 7inch screens)...

I realllllly wanted a trolling motor but couldn't quite swing it. That will be my next big purchase over the winter. I'll be on here asking for advice on that install for sure.

Thank you for your reply. You probably have researched the trolling motors. We’ve had multiple MinnKota Terrova iPilots thru the years, and they’ve been great. They really upped their game when they went to the GPS puck...ours have been accurate, strong and reliable so far. Having said all that, I’d have no reservation about getting a Rhodan. The Rhodan customers are confident in their company. It’s not that the Rhodans never have problems... but they stand behind the motors so well. Bryan is putting a MinnKota on our new build and you can see how he does it to get ideas for your rig.
We’ve had Garmin on our last two boats...mainly because the dealers didn’t want to be bothered with Furuno. I’d like to try Furuno because of the reputation for quality and customer support.
Also looking forward to seeing how the console is set up, so I can develop some storage plans. Need room for ditchbag, Epirb/flare kit, toolbox, 5 gallon bucket, outrodders, throwable, etc.
I guess nobody loves us...yet.

I have a 21. I put a 72 inch ipilot Link Minkota Ulterra that is linked to a Hummingbird Solix 15 inch. Great set up and I am very happy with it . It has changed the way I fish , sidescan etc. Went with an airmar shoot thru transducer for the sonar and two charging systems , one for the house batteries and one for the trolling motor batteries.
One mod that I had Bryan do is put a hatch/door beneath the anchor locker ( at the bulkhead close to the deck) . The anchor locker is enormous and I believed it was a waste of space. I put all my safety stuff up there. Lifejackets, flares etc.
The forward fish box/ compartment is great . I found 2.5 gallon buckets at my local" dollar store that fit perfectly with the hatch closed. I put my cleaning stuff, extra lines etc into them to keep stuff organized down there.
I will check my prop size the next time I get to my boat . I forgot what I have.

Ok I have to ask, why do I see a bunch of these Pair Marine for sale with very few hours? Pair is not a big builder but I've seen too many very new 21/24 for sale shortly after people take possession. The quality looks top notch, is the ride poor? Or is it the second hand market offers a higher price since there is a wait?

I've seen multiple pop up recently, seems like a few of these were anticipated builds that were sold shortly after under 70 hours.

I’ve seen a bunch for sale in the classifieds here...I’ll bet half were people going up to the 24, or stepping up to the new deep v. I’ve not heard a single soul bash the ride that were owners. There’s been some people critical of the ride who have never ridden on a Pair, but were certain the 14 degree deadrise would booger the ride.

In my opinion the ride is excellent for a 14 degree deadrise boat. I’ve been on a similar size Maycraft and the Pair’s ride is superior. I’ve heard the same from guys who have gone from Parker to Pair.

I can’t say why people are selling their boats and I only know of 2 that have been listed on here recently. I spoke with both before I purchased and was told nothing but good things. H2OBUG has another boat on the way and explained his reasoning in his listing.

So not the thru-hull? How do you like this transducer, which model did you go with?
