On a 730 or 733 do the tubes touch the water when stopped?

I'm still researching my next rib purchase, but I know it will be a 7M, and that I will be keeping it in a slip.
If it has an IO setup, I'll be keeping it on a Hydrohoist. If it has OB(s), I may keep it in the water. Do the stern part of the tubes touch the water?

Thanks.

Here's a picture of mine in perfectly calm water. I've since added several hundred pounds of stuff to it but it hasn't changed noticeably.

Zodiac 733 rebuild

Yep, that will do it.

Patrick is doing a build right now with twin 150 2 strokes, which I am sure puts more weight at the stern. Interested to see how low it sits.

Thanks for the input Jason.

Nope, about 4 inches out of the water.

Waterline is exactly at the paint:

Thanks everyone.

Ryan, Isn't max rated HP for your boat 300? If yes, have you ever had any issues with law enforcement?

My brackets are rated for 500hp. Willard produces out of the factory the 730 with 2x225 mercs.

no kidding.

Maybe it is just the 733 that has max rated HP of 300 then?
