Boat projects, weather and schedules finally allowed for a trip. Went pretty well. Just about ready to push her a little farther. Likely 1-2 more bottom trips and then try some 2-3 day Bluewater stuff.

Video coming in last Saturday. About half fuel. 16.5 knots at 70% engine load. Not the speed we saw at sea trail, but acceptable I guess. She has some wallow to her in video that I didn’t notice in person. Autopilot s was a bit sensitive and I remember dialing it back later in the run home. I think that’s the source of yaw. You can see the little S shapes in wash.


Video above. Pretty great fishing platform!

I’d estimated 330 gallons. She took 348. Not bad. Need to be a little more conservative, but also ran the boat hard a little, idled a LOT, and some cruise. 18 gallons off not bad.
