The latest update; the boat had a sea trial on 6/3 but the back pressure was too high. Soundown decided that we needed a different muffler to go with the Scania. They also recommended increasing the exhaust elbow from 6 to 8” so we’re waiting for the new elbow to arrive. There has also been some conjecture about diverting some of the cooling water away from the exhaust elbow.
The boat was pulled last week to cut out and replace the muffler. The new muffler is in and reglassed. Just waiting on the new elbow. On the hard until then.

Love the look and spec of this one, fantastic job on her.

Apologies if posted elsewhere: What make/ profile lifting rail did you use?

That’s a 1258 rail from Hamilton marine or integrity marine. Called a spray rail in the catalog most likely.

We delivered the boat from the Cape to FI a few weeks ago and she ran like a champ. We cruised at 1900-2000 rpm and made 22-23 knots with three crew.
We have made two overnight trips to the Hudson Canyon so far and burned about 265 gals each trip; includes about 10 hours at cruise, plus trolling, plus genset use.
The Scania engine management computer froze and has to be replaced so I don’t have live fuel numbers.
The tuna door has been a great add to get divers in and out.
The bow thruster has been a great tool for docking in nasty conditions and for setting lines during a drift.
The Scania start panel has three toggle switches with pre-set rpm settings. The engine was set with an idle at 600 rpm. One of the toggles is set at 500 rpm which is helpful while docking. A second toggle resets the rpm to 600. The third is set at 850 rpm, presumably for more power for PTO.
