The hurricanes and work have kept me from finishing her up. Last weekend I did 20 hours of wiring and I’m almost done with the electrical. Just an anchor light an horn left. I used the guides from newwire.com to get started.

Has anyone insured a rebuilt Seacraft? Progressive maximum is $40k and Geico is $30k. What’s the best way to cover this boat?

going to try and get some numbers today. The wind is blowing big time but this is the only day I can do it. I think the motor is mounted a little high. It suck air in corners and in rough seas. Cav plate looks about perfect but may try to lower one hole. Mike set me up with a 3/16/21.5 prop. It is barely on plane at 3000 rpms. It gets out of the water fine and does 47mpg at WOT. I need some fuel efficiency number today. My goal is not top end but good fuel economy.

Are you trimmed down in the turns and rough seas? I have to trim down in tight turns and rough seas.

Don't move the motor! Bite the bullet and go pick you up a standard Mercury Bravo 1 22p. You can buy me dinner later.

Got her in the water to take some numbers. I decided to program the Bennett Auto Trim Tabs first. My son and I got the tabs programmed without a problem. We made a few trial starts and stops to check them when they died. The leds got dimmer and then everything stopped.

Then we took numbers that will most likely be a little better with proper tabbing. The tabs were partly deployed to maybe 10 degrees.

Here is the wide open throttle and max fuel economy. 45 mph @ 5300 rpms @ 1.9 mpg. Definitely slower than I thought I’d get.

I think I can do a little better on burn. 26 mph @ 3400 rpms @ 3.6 mpg.

Kmoose - Should I be looking at the 3 or 4 blade Bravo in what diameter? Will it help with cavitation in heaven seas and cornering?

Later in the weekend, The tabs were fixed, just a bad crimp. I hope the auto tabs are worth the money and effort.

Also as a side note... the Simrad NSS is awesome! I’m still trying to program it also. Trying to set up the 2 fuel tanks with the fluid level sensors. Shouldn’t be hard.
