I hear ya!

To be fair, the engine is kinda Pivotal (see what I did there) but yes, we load a ton of cr@p into our boats and then debate the merits of various engine weights. When I was selling the previous willkcraft I stripped her out and increased her speed by a significant amount. Lesson learned. The current willkcraft has a love/hate relationship with the legal towing limits and so I've had to be strict about weights. A 450L tank of gas can make a big difference to speed and legality - well worth watching!
