Thanks for the nice comments half tank of fuel ice and four men 1.9 mpg at 36 mph gps speed. Longest run i have made was around 165 miles out to the canyon 72 miles out of Va beach one way we used 82 or 86 gal that day. The guys on the boat paid for the fuel that day so I don't remember the fine details
vevfisher sorry no warranty left on the motor. Havn't had the first problem with it, not even the first hiccup I love the 350 its a sweet motor. oh and its super easy to change the oil on a 350 too, its nice when things that should be easy are easy for a change. Sorry I Know A yes or no would have been fine.
The motor has 0 hours on a new water pump, 0 hours on both fuel filters, just has southeastern marine do that for me.
The porta pottie has never been used. Fresh water washdown has never had water in it so never been used.
4 new tires (got a nail in one so I replaced all 4)
2 new batteres (the old one was fine but added a second one,wanted them to match)
I replaced all the wire on the trailer with tined wire and ran the ground back to the truck man what an improvement. soldered and heat shrinked everything also. Not much longer befor the Cobia start showing up at Hatteras!!!
I love to see you have it fishsmell. Ryan g 6000 rpm two people on board 3/4 tank of fuel no gear or ice she ran 53 mph once never tryed it again. I dont like to go fast pushing something but I do like to go fast when I can and it isn't considered pushing it, for example I was at the trinangle wrecks anout 30 miles out of va beach it was slick with a slow 5 foot swell I ran in at 45 mph.
Thats fun to me the 350 sounds so happy at 5500 rpm. As far as Pushing it goes I have been told that yamaha wants you to run the four strokes in the upper rpm zone that its good for them. Oh yea the 350 sounds happy at any rpm! Hope that helps.
Hey guys, I'm new to the board. I wanted to jump on and help Mike out. I have fished with Out Numbered many times. I really don't want him to sell this thing, but wanted to give you guys an idea of performance. We ran 72 miles off of VA in 3-4 footers. Fished all day and a nice ride back in. This boat will take the water offshore. Total for the day was 165 miles and we burned 81 gallons. Nice boat and great fishing platform.
