Finally on the water

The boat is ready for now. Of course there will be lots of small projects and improvements to be done. I gave a name for it and it is: "Harmaakarhu" which means a grey bear or a grizzly in Finnish. You can follow the adventures on instagram searching for #harmaakarhu or #avonsearider

Top speed with that FL150AETX is about 43 knots.

Few pics from the week on the water. And a video

19" Yamaha performance series prop. Haven't yet been following the gauges too much. But I get something like 1-1.3 nautical miles per litre. Have been mostly blasting it

On closer inspection the prop is Solas 14x19 I just got from cruising around for an hour on quite big waves and the total burned fuel was 21 litres for 20NM average speed 18 knots and tops at 41 knots. That makes it about 1 litre / NM.

Thanks!
I have been on that same pier with different boats for almost 5 years now

No more projects to come before next spring, when I will be doing the bow locker and some extra lights under the tubes on front. That flood light on the a-frame is really nice as a general work light. But for spotting the nav aids it's not so good.

Bow locker design

Start of the bow locker project.

I made a 3D model using photogrammetry to serve as a base for the CAD design. Bow locker will be fabricated from water-cut aluminium plates welded together.

Very elegant!
Would you eventually share the data (i.e. your locker design measurements) with fellow locker-needy SR6ers?
