Just wanted to post a few pictures of my FC530. Been getting it ready for the 2016 season. Can't wait!

I got it in November, it has been stored inflated and indoors and saw little use. Originally purchased by a rescue outfit for flood/hurricane relief. It's in Denver right now but I'm hoping to take it to the west coast maybe San Diego area and do a little diving with it. It came with a very nice Evinrude Etec 65hp with Durajet. Ran it with muffs on and only at idle. It may be a little overkill but...probably tons of fun.

She looks great, never saw a black cover like that, I have to use a silver reflective one to keep my black boat from cooking in Cali.

Welcome to the BBC.

Cheers

Hi Char, I am not sure of the make of the cover as it came with the boat when I bought it. I do know that the company that built it is out of Missouri. I will get the make of the cover next time I see it.
cheers

Hey squid boat, yes, a black cover is going to work wonders in Socal. It's in a hangar in Denver right now so heat is not an issue, yet. It's ready to go, just have to put a new impeller in the etec and good to go!

When you get around to it, please do some performance testing with GPS!
