Tuned in a little late on this one. Yes, I've been complaining to Suzuki on this for over a year and suggested they needed more of a cone shaped screen on the bulb intake that would be more...

It looks like you're looking at a 340, which is a Schionning design displacement hull with a 16' beam.
I was just on the new 320 with 10' beam that has had its hulls
modified to mimic the 420....

The 30' ArrowCat that was built in China is now a much more refined 32' ArrowCat 320 that is made in St Pete, FL
Someone mentioned they were much slower, but I wouldn't call mid 50s much slower,...

My personal opinion is keep it under 5000 rpm for all day cruising. Engine noise is noticeably less under 5000.
Shorter runs in the low 5000s. WOT, more for testing performance, making a bridge,...

Do you want to be able to sleep in it? Camp out? other?
Express cruiser vs Dual Console vs Cuddy Cabin?
ArrowCat 320 might be something to throw into the mix depending on how you want to use it.

That's just hilarious.
Unless you know exactly how this particular unit was plumbed in. Your just guessing just like everyone else.
Lots of unanswered questions.

It really should be an ACR from each start battery to the house bank, which allows each engine separately to put extra capacity into the house bank.

looks like opening and closing is a matter of rolling or un rolling the canvas, so that must mean the struts are tensioning.
What holds the struts in the open position?
Springs? Air pressure?

Lot's of variables.
It might not have been set up with the correct algorithms or he might have been a bit ham-handed with the joystick.

Wouldn't surprise me if monohulls ack differently then cats on engine height.
Most cats seem to do just fine with the cavitation plate a good bit above the transom.

I agree and have a similar experience. With Jack plates, it's easy to see real time. The duo props don't blow out like a conventional prop would do, rather the rpm just goes up. I think what's...

Not enough traction to push the heavier loads that dictate a lower pitched prop in the first place.
I've already confirmed the slip is excessive in their 15p props.

I had one go out. Asked the mechanics and they told me it was a new seal design and not the original. It would seem at this point, they are changing them as they go out.

I understand the top seal of the lower unit has been re-designed.
Also the water inlet screen is supposed to be re-designed so it is self cleaning.

I've seen 5 batteries, but I don't believe I've seen the Amp/hr rating of those batteries and since lithium wasn't mentioned, they're probably lead acid, which only has 50% usable capacity without...

I agree with the net amps.
Yamaha is doing the same thing with the 425, listing it at gross amps.
Subtracting pumps, injectors, and steering gives a whole different number.

I have some experience with DF350s using jackplates. You can raise them quite a bit without the props blowing out, but the best speed and economy is lower.
If you posted it, I missed the pitch...

Be sure to measure total distance to and from the battery (or effectively double what the distance is) since that is how DC loads and cable size are determined.
