    Should the perfect motor for this boat. substantial weight savings vs the C18 plus the elimination for the dual exhaust.

    going with 600 gallons

    I have underwater exhaust setup on my boat. Big motors like that is really keeps the noise and fumes to a minimum. just a small maybe 3 inch hole out the back of the boat to let you know the motor is pumping water and for back pressure at low speeds. the genny is plumbed the same way. Might be something to look into if cruising is the main reason you are building the boat.

    What other systems are you going with? What generator? What head system? Water heater? As far as head systems go I think Vaccuflush would be a good fit for you.
