Moving a ~30' boat ~30knots at 2 mpg is never a bad thing! I'd be curious to see what the performance would be with twin 175's.
Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.
If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.
If it was me I'd take twin 225hp Yamahas as it would probably get the boat on plane with one motor, gets better mileage and better cruise speed. Any idea what the newer Yamaha's would do in this power range?
I love seeing this testing and info as we are seriously wanting to upgrade to a 27 or 29 pilothouse in a year or so. Its amazing to see how much better the Wooldridge boats are at fuel efficiency than others in the same class Keep posting up the great info Glenn
BOATLESS for now......
