May I ask what props you’re running?
I’ve been looking to go to four blades, but no-one is sure how to spec them.

Mine is also Perkins powered. 6.354 turbos.

Thanks!

Sounds wonderful!

We’ll be heading down to FL in the land trawler for March.
No plans yet for trips on the water. Too many friends from far away coming to visit us this summer.

But maybe…..
