Good to hear, Greg. Sounds like you nailed it on the first time!

Your engines are naturals, right? Mine are natural 4.236 Perkins...your engines with 2 cylinders lopped off. They seem to like lugging along at 1800 RPM. I used to run at 2000 RPM for 8 Kts but the noise and fuel flow seem much better at 1800 (7.5 Kts). I saw a drop from 2.0 GPH per engine to 1.6 GPH per engine.
My boat is my ark. It's my mobile treehouse and my floating fishing cabin. It's my retreat and my respite. Everyday I thank God I have a boat! -Al
