4LH--Enough Power ??

Why not seatrial the boat with full fuel, 3-5 55 gallon barrels of water and 3 of your friends on it.. Running out light will tell you nothing.

That particular engine needs to see not less that 3300 RPM ( 3450 is recommended by YANMAR) at WOT when the boat is loaded as you intend to use it.. Nothing else really matters what may be said here as each boat/engine combo has it's own unique characteristics.

When the dust settles, it will end up being the HP available at a SAFE CRUISE RPM, versus the weight YOU NEED to use it at.

Agree with loading up for the sea trial, I have done that on but only did 2 barrels on a 32'. Lets be realistic, you want to put 3-5 on a boat? A 55 gallon barrel, 8lbs/gal, 440lbs per barrel?

I used to put 3 55 gallon barrels of diesel on during my longer canyon trips on a 40' HH with a 800HP Cat and noticed it, not bad at all but noticed it. What do you think adding up to 5 barrels on a 28' boat?

Full fuel, two people a barrel of water is enough to give you a good idea. I can also tell you to be careful as the foot print weight must be over a good support and tied down. Some decks built on the wrong deck could be disaster and really piss the owner off.

I fish out of Sandwich in the spring and fall off my general marine 26. Figure Stellwagon, closest point is just over an hour at cruise. Sandwich is a great spot in regards to that, glad you got in on the closed wait list after 14 years.

Good luck with it! I'll probably stop by sometime as I'm always down in Sandwich and at times my boat is there. Is this the TJ 28 that was in Sandwich proud mary or another one?
