Are the E-TECs tilted fully up to get the Gearbox out of the water.

I don't think they are all the way up, I will have them check. Guessing they should stay completely out of the water?

Either in or out, never half way !

This is what happens if the anode is out of the water and the new anode becomes the lower unit...

Albeit an extreme example...

i read the g2's tilt very far and the mercs on other boat look clear of water so probably not tilted right out.

cracking looking bit of kit, enjoy.

Unfortunately due to Hurricane Matthew as well as hovering tropical depressions, we hadn't had a chance to run Empress until Thursday and Friday.

I am off island but the report from the captain is short and sweet:

Quote:
Morning! Empress rides like a cadillac, very fast and burns
less fuel
And the first trip was on a rough day!

I will update more as I get numbers and details!
