    Hopefully you didn't make the same mistake NR made on a few of the davits otherwise it may end up at the bottom along with the pots.

    Looks good otherwise.
    Nope. I Looked at several versions of this style davit and added plenty of gussets to prevent the top snapping off. Hope she doesn't take a dive on me.

    Speed 8 19 17.jpgCan we take up a collection to get an uploader that works the first time you try it?

    I should have taken some pictures this weekend. And I still need to find a day to do the performance sheet Grant gave me too. Now that I'm getting a feel for the boat, I have it down to 2.3 MPG on a long trip. If I stay around 35 mph I get that anyway. If I step it up to 40+ then my fuel burn goes down to 1.8 or so. Not bad, but sure was hoping for better. I do know I need bigger props though. I'm thinking if I go up to 22 or 23 pitch, I'd bet right where I want for fuel burn/speed. But she runs so nice now as it is. I'll try to get some good numbers next trip out.

    Rob - Can't remember if I asked before, but did you go with counter-rotating engines?

You can buy online for about $100 + shipping or from Trailercraft for about $125 here in town.
    Since this uploader won't let me attach a pdf, I'll email it to you.
