Well came back from week long vacation. Motor didn't get stolen. 25 four stroke Zuk certainly proved adequate. In most cases my family except my oldest didn't want me to go past half throttle. Seems pretty economical. From coast went up about 8-10 miles on Alsea river, run aground on low tide in the bay coming back, bobbed around some high mountain lakes and even boated inside a volcano. Last one was fairly taxing on motor. At 7000 ft above sea level it took it some time to get boat on the plane. All of this less than single 6 gal tank. About 3/4 maybe.
Got a leak in a keel, have to pump it up daily. Need to work on seating for passengers. Maybe get some Zodiac benches. Need to raise that motor couple inches for sure. Lots of splashing on transom.
