    Default Happy Glacier Craft Owner

    I own a 30' x 10'6" Glacier Craft with twin Yamaha F350s. If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask me any questions that you may have. If you want to tell me that I can't spell filet I am aware of that. If I can figure it out I will post pictures of my boat. I know fish, not computers.

    Only one question: Do still have the perma grin from the first time you firewalled the throttles?! I look forward to experiencing that.

    Default The outboards

    How do you like the F350 yamahas? Did the boat really need 700 ponies?

    No it doesn't need that much, but can you ever really have TOO much?

    I think you owe us some performance numbers of rpm, mph, and gph

    That boat has got to be some kind of performer. At least give us a description of running the boat.

    Knowing the owner and boat, I can say that it will pass anything but the fuel dock! At cruise he is turning some pretty amazing numbers, though. At 37+/- mph he is burning 24 g/hr. This is at 3900 rpm, too. I have a very similar boat with F250's and have to run at 4800+ to get 37mph I know that yamaha says each motor will burn 30+ gal/hr at WOT. I am sure he will chime in hear eventually.

    Default Post a pic

    I hope this works. I just copied this pic and pasted to the message box.
    If you see me in my G3 with a ball cap on then it worked and thats all there is to it. If not I will let you know when I find out

    In the past there has been posts about Scott at Glaciercraft and the moderator of this forum reminded everyone that this forum was not intended to vent negativity. Does this answer your question?
