Nice. The first bay boat I fished on was a Kenner. My friend took it to Lake Erie where we fish for smallmouth in May.
That is when I knew I was going to leave the bass boats and get a bay boat.

I didn't see any transom D rings for the tie down hooks? How do you secure it?

54. I could probably trim a bit more out of it if I cared to. Not much need/opportunity to do so here on the river/ICW.
Cruise is spectacular. We're able to do anything/everything we need to do all day and hardly - if ever - run the motor over 4000 rpm.

Doesn't the engine "make oil" if you do not run it, hard enough - long enough, to burn the fuel (moisture) from the oil?
Check you oil level often.
Also- Engines need to be "broken in" correctly also so the "rings seat" to the cylinders to prevent blow-by, i/e. leaking fuel into the crankcase.

It was broken in correctly, with the requisite operation at WOT when called for.
As to the initial point, not an issue for me. I've kept an eye on it through these first 18 months. Perhaps my warmer water helps. Although, honestly, in 12 years I worked for Yamaha Outboards...I didn't see very much of this absent a decent (non-rushed) break-in.
