    We recently decided to build a 42 YF and put the deposit down. In speaking with Wylie he indicated the roll reduction on this boat, with a Sea Keeper, was negligible. I'm interested in your experience with the Sea Keeper.

    How would you rate the benefit of the Sea Keeper?
    Would you do it again?
    Where did they place it (was unable to tell from pictures)?
    What is the maintenance like on the units?

    Any other feedback on your boat, what you like, what you wish was different would be very much appreciated.

    We are going the route of Triple 350s (may look at new yamaha 425) and a Gap Tower.

    Yeas I've had it for about 10 moths. I have a full gap tower (tuna tower). Fastest Ive hit is 61 mph, realistically 56 mph is top. I normally get .5 going WOT, .6 mpg going 50 mph, .7 around 42 mph, rarely get any better than that (couple times I've seen .8 mpg). But remember I have a full tower which takes off about 5 mph. Boat has been great. Just put in an order for another 42 with quad 400's for July 2016 delivery.
