Any info on fuel burn, prop size or gear ratio? Thanks

Thank you! I havenít had a chance to use it very much this year, I just finished the house this spring, Iíve been working on the old house to get it ready to sell but it was loaded with termites. Now itís done and I think Iím more ready for hunting season than boating right now. Hope all is well

Great looking setup you have there, boat and house.
I do like that generous eyebrow on the boat, we need to extend ours to cut down on sun on some angles.
