Not much only the bow has now been lifted.
There are now 2 x double jockey seats instead of 4 x single jockey seats. Having gained some deck space the the console has now been moved a bit towards midships. The tube colour is Clair Grey (light grey)

Hey Andre! Looking good! What kind of performance and fuel consumption have they indicated with this rig? What's the hp of a 1.7 Merc?

The HP of the Mercruiser 1.7 is 120HP and with a 21" LASER prop the Parker 630 will do 32/33 knots max, max revs is 4400 RPM, best cruising speed is 26/28knots
This will be my third demo Parker 630 with the Mercruiser 1.7 TDI
Once I have clocked up some hours and shown it around it will be for sale

as for fuel consumption well a lot has been said on the forum about this engine and all I can add is not a lot and it is the red stuff which I hope will be around for a long time yet
