23'8" + bracket if memory serves. Most of the time I see those listed as 25' on for sale sites.

Do the guys that own the 2796 cc put out larger wake then other boats when doing about 6-7 mph? Mine seems to put out decent size compared to other boats when doing idle speeds.
thanks

6-7 knots is a little fast to be idling around in a no wake. If thatís what youíre talking about. When Iím running around 7 while trolling yes itís a decent wake. But when Iím in the canals cruising around 3-4 there is a very minimal wake. Hope this helps

yeah not technically idle speeds but when in the intercostal some bigger ccs going faster puts up little wake compared to mine was just seeing if my motors were mounted in wrong hole, cause on my old 2450 cc it put up some wake. Maybe the boat is just heavy
thanks

Does anyone know the thread size for the steering wheel on a 2390? The rubber on my wheel is starting to fall apart, and I plan to replace the wheel with a Schmitt.

I'd love to meet the guy who designed the bilge access for the 2390... and kick him square in the you know what... It's such a pain to do anything in the bilge. I'm replacing one of the floor drain hoses, and it will not let go of the thru-hull, which is further complicated by my inability to get any kind of good leverage on the hose, due to lack of access.

Iíve got a 2400 and couldnít agree more. Has anyone ever attempted cutting some kind of door in the floor by the bildge access? Iíve been thinking of doing something like that but donít know if itís even possible. Iím sure youíd have to reglass and reinforce the door frame but might be worth it.

Since I went to a 4 stroke and remove the oil reservoirs, I can actually get inside the bilge through the splashwell access. I'm 5'11 and 165 lbs, and can just barely do it. Even inside the bilge it is still very cramp and difficult to access anything. Being inside the bilge, I am amazed by how much wasted space there is, but I guess that is just one of the design trade-offs associated with a eurotransom.

I actually donít mind working in the bilge. I just lay on my belly and crawl in there. I usually wear a headlight as well. If itís a long job, I roll over onto my back every so often for a break. I do try to have everything I need to do the job with me to minimize crawling in and out. Iím 5í11Ē and 200 lbs.

I think those deck scupper hoses may be easier to tackle if you take out the big plastic rod holder inserts under the gunwale. At least thatís my theory

Why not just take the back panel out? In front of the live well. Seems to be good for me.

That would help a little, but I still don't think having to cut out a bunch of caulk, unscrew and remove a large panel, plus reinstall, should be necessary to perform regular maintenance...

Back to the hose - penetrating fluid + heat gun = floor drain hose removed. Replaced with the same wet exhaust wire reinforced 1 1/2" hose. While I was in their I noticed my raw water filter was full of junk so I removed that for a good cleaning as well.

Anyone replaced the anchor locker hose? That one looks completely inaccessible.
