Boat looks awesome. Great to hear you are enjoying it. The docking will become easy. And yeah, I pull mine nose in too. It is very hard to get off the boat from the because the back is so low. I was nervous about docking at first too, after a couple of times its no problem. I now dock with out shifting, I start the motors in gear just to be easy on the lowers. They say its not necessary but easier on the equipment for sure. Those 3.0 love gas. Keep it under 5k and its a lot better. Good luck! Boat looks great.

had mine out yesterday for a few hours and really paid attn to the smart craft which i just calibrated. it seems at approx 4500 rpms, i burn about 17-18 gals per hour per motor which isnt horrible at all. at 6200 rpms burning approx 32 glas per hour per motor. i have a pair of 70 gal tanks which should allow for plenty of cruising

Im reading the same (32gph) at the high end but didnt check @ 4500. My problem is when the gauges are on empty Im only filling with 35 gal a side. Hopefully the gauges are off and the tanks are bigger.
What did you do to "calibrate" the smartcraft?

If you get a chance give me a call in the office, left the cell at home this morning
Cant wait to run her in Barnaget Bay with ya.

Chris glad to hear you made it out this weekend. It sounds like you'll do just fine with it. When was the last time Stecz was in the water with his cig?
