The Mercury #6 is on the Way Too List:

Way to Expensive
Way to heavy
Way to big for the Yanmar Package
Way too much power loss

Just seems that the proven package that I see Fountain using seems to be a good system.

I've wondered about the single propeller theory. It seems that the European teams still had a large assortment of propellers even though they were using the multiple speed transmissions at the time.

Looks like a great party boat for the cove.

Congrats,
Now you can hang out with the rest of us old farts in our slow boats. BTW, compared to mine, 40mph is smokin.

By LOTO standards, my boat's getting kind of small and it's way too slow. I think your lower back is going to appreciate your new ride over the cat. I'm sure your wife will appreciate the head, gen, AC, etc. It will look a lot less akward carrying that kayak with you too.

Default Kayak

Hey Gary,
You are right about a better way to haul my kayak. Hey you have to admit it is a great way to see the partycove. I bet we had 20,000 taken of that cobra Kayak. See ya at the Lake Allen

The Green wing II was built about a mile from me , i think you're right about the 2 1400 hp cats. That thing is a monster, I watched them dunk it after they had to redo the trannies- it seems that a sandbar was misplaced.

When you get old, fat, and lazy like me you'll realize that kayak thing is WAY too much work. Try one of these for getting around the cove.
