The new boat holds more cod, we took delivery last may and had a great fishing charter season with it. Now we are jigging Pcod in single digit temps. The boat came with a garmin electronics package, the best part of the package was the radar, until now, its frozen, I could hear a grinding noise when I turn on the unit on, Furuno and Raythyon never had issues when it was cold.
with 3000lbs I try not to plane out unless I need to catchup to a tender. so I put around at 8knts burning 4 gph, verses 16gph at 16knts. with 4500lbs I cruise at 8knts burning 5gph and at 14knts 18gph, again I put around with a load, it has a 370 DPH volvo
