Helped KenB lower the engine on the bracket this week. It was a tad too high.
Thanks again for the squid and marine ply!!!

Thanks Shrimp! Much much better.

Ran with full fuel today (110 gallons), WOT was 30knots, 5400, 15.1 gph. Best cruise is still 3900-4100 rpm, 21-24 knots, 6-8 gph. Overall, I'm getting close to 80 hours, at 2.75 mpg overall. Not too shabby!

Scup tempura is pretty tasty.

And I got my boat surveyed, pretty happy with the outcome.

Default livewell plumbed.

Plumbed the livewell. Groco seacock into seachest I molded up with my 'bracket' skills, male mold was a battery box. 1500 gph bilge pump to 1-1/8' 'fish pond' tubing. Overfill drain was mounted on top but doesn't drain so I will move it to the side. My hatch cover is leftover 1/4 lexan from the doghouse windows with a neoprene seal, but it flexes too much to provide enough of a seal to push water up the 2" elbow, probably need an Archimedes screws. Main drain is 1-1/2 pool tubing, works fine. I added a '30 sec on/3mins off' timer so I can use the 'aerate' switch on the dash.

If the headwinds are more than about 40 knots, overflow spray fills the doghouse, gotta fix that.

My dog lucyyy not impressed with the first pogie I cast netted. But who knew GSPs could point pogies. Top end with full gas and filled livewell dropped to about 30 knots. Still cruise at 4k rpm, 20 knots, 3 mpg. No one asked, but survey says... $63K.

Wins:
1) Boat didn't sink.
2) Pump works. Not too many leaks.
3) Pogies and scup not dead.
