24' Cruiser - draws about 30". Just a few inches more than what is left when we anchor and the tide goes out. The wheel isn't supposed to turn on its own, right? :grin:

23' John Allmand Ticonderoga (an oldie but goodie). Original I/O (Merc w/ Ford V-8).

Drive / tabs up: 1'7" (my trim tabs can dip down below the centerline of the transom on the inner corners quite easily)

Drive down: 2' 11"

Measured in fresh water (at the lake) with two tanks of fuel, but no tackle, ice or passengers inside.

What can I say? I was very curious! :grin:
