Useful info.

I reckon that with both underfloor and extended range fuel tanks full of fuel and the boat bare of any anchors etc it weighs roughly 1.4 tons with my set up. Had a quick look as I couldn't remember the figures, the yams would be an extra 50 odd kgs in a twin set up vs Evinrudes.


Boat 800 kg
Engines 390 kg
Fuel 200 kg

Total 1390 kg.

My set up definetely handles better with a bit of weight on board, I tend to put three sets of dive kit up in the bow which seems to have her balanced very nicely. Without this if you go out on your own she is a bit stern heavy.
