Fuel burn was 24 gph at 20 - 21 knots with this setup. The boat has a large sonar tube in the keel of the hull in front of the forward bulk head. The boat is heavy, we had 10 people on board during the sea trial all of them in the cabin area. No lifting rails of any kind and it has a large rudder, so between the water sticking to the side of the hull, the large sonar tube at the forward end of the keel and the large rudder, she has some drag.

The wheel is a 34" x 42" 4 blade Michigan and is bronze.

Trust by no means was I knocking wesmac. I just know what the 42Wesmac burns on some trips and being who I am, I have to swallow real hard everytime we have fueled her up

Love this boat, love the dash setup in the wheel house. Great looking lines. How wide are these 15ish?

Would love to see some pics of the hull out of the water. Love the stainless parts all over this boat too.
