a few more pics of the underside of the consol, and then finished article,, took it down south for the PDI which took 2 hours, then on to Teinmouth to run it in, the smartcraft gear is good stuff, it counts down the time remaining before you can give it some beans!!
first day did 88 miles and used 52 litres of fuel, and at least 1.5 l of oil,
they run rich until running in has been completed!!
engine Extremely quiet, but also sounds great when opened up! top speed 43 kts WOT, and good in the rough stuff, does need more pitch down to get a really good ride through the breakers!!
all in all, it feels a good set up, engine is a lot more economical than i ever thought,
Second day,mixture of WOT, cruising , wavejumping ,80 litres put in, 60 miles and 43 lts burnt,
