very nice. Looks like we are within days of each other. I couldn't swing new tubes and only have a 250. It will be interesting to see how our boats perform.

Nice job.

The spare tires in the before shot on trailer are a bit rough.

Thanks!

It's been a long project.
The best 733 I've built so far.
You should see the other 3 tires!

You had a 300 on your previous right? What was the cruise speed and fuel burn for best economy?

This boat is sold.
With the 300 etec on my other 733 it was about 12gph at about 30 knots so 2.5 Nm per gallon.
1.8 Nm per gallon flat out at 45 knots.
