All I can say, is that I'm eagerly awaiting the build thread. These questions are WAY beyond my budget, or consideration.
Dammit, I thought it was fairly original. Kind of a homage to the Mandalorian, or could be reference to “this is the way“ to: peace and happiness, solitude, the poor house, etc..proposed name seems dubious, at best...
Something about 12:1 compression and a way over tuned V6 are not exactly a recipie for reliability. A few local guys have smoldered 4-5 of them.anyone have experience with Suzuki 350s? Will I need power assist steering if I go with those or 300s? Was reading on THT that it was recommended for the big Suzukis and Yamahas.
Do you have performance data on your boat yet With the Yamaha 300s? Similar size to the build I was thinking of.That is sweet. It would be cool if Yamaha extended that to their other platforms or at least redesigned their lower units. Would save me the hassle of a haul-out or sling time.
with only 800 rods they are undergunned !!!Will post #'s when I supposedly get it this month. I've been told to expect 3mpg by someone on here but I'm not buying it. During sea trials on the last one with the same hull I saw 22-24kt cruise @ 3750 @ 1.2-1.3mpg in dead flat slack water out of Everett, 5800 WOT. That was with 2 guys, a smak tote filled to the top with water, fish hold filled with water, and 150g in the tank. I then saw it get .8 out of ilwaco running fully loaded (6 guys, bait, ice, 800 rods, etc) offshore in moderate/big swell seas. The owner has a lead foot and says he avgs .8 - 1.2. YMMV, but I expect 1.0 - 1.3 for how/where I'll run it.
