So Tuesday I moved the boat from the marina Where the boat was to Where it is now. I am having some electronics work done. The Seas were running between 1 - 3 ft. and we went right through them. :) I am very happy about this. What a nice feeling. It looks like the fuel burn is about 25 - 30 GPH. I logged in about 49nm. This was really my 1st trip in this boat. I did take it out once before and run it around the river the day I filled it up but this was a 30 minute quick play. Backing this is totally different then a single screw boat. This will take a little getting use to.

Fuel burn sounds about right. And, yes, they do handle well in a chop. As I have described before on BE, we brought ours up the Delaware Bay from the Cape May Canal to the C&D Canal with a strong north wind blowing against an incoming tide once. The water was so nasty that we were getting soaked on the flybridge... reports were 5-7' and that's not swells! The boat took it great and we never once felt we were in any danger or didn't have complete control. Enjoy her!

I recently realized that at this stage of my life I'm now wise enough to know better, but old enough not to give a damn.

With what we went through we did not have any spray. :) Life is good. In the other boat we would have had to slow down and would have been soaked to the bone. What a difference this has made.
