Didn't change the waterline. Here are some photos heading out for the Veterans Appreciation Tournament at Spring Point Marina in Maine last summer loaded down heavy. Then a couple from this winter with the current configuration. The winter photos have all me and my wife's belongings to live aboard for a couple months as well as all the tackle needed down there.Norseman wrote: ↑Thu May 02, 2019 5:01 pmWould love to see pictures of your boat with all that stuff on it.Jaredh wrote: ↑Thu May 02, 2019 11:44 amCurrently having mine adjusted from 19x19 to 19x17. Slight cupping.
When running light I have seen rated RPM, but not when loaded up for tuna fishing with 3 guys on board.
Have added the following to the boat which had increased weight significantly:
6 Man Solas A raft on the roof
Radar mast with lighting
43 Gal Livewell in cockpit
2x Yeti Roadie 20s with ice
Yeti 165 with ~160lbs ice on swim platform
2nd 26lb danforth with 30ft chain and 600ft rode
Fishbox full of ice
4x 130 outfits and other tuna gear
3 guys with overnight gear
Portable Generator on roof
If the trip goes well, a 250lb - 500lb dressed tuna on deck
I am looking forward to running at rated cruise rather than ~3000rpm when heavy and ~2000rpm with a fish on deck.
Did you raise the waterline and if so, by how much?
Will report back in a couple weeks once I get her splashed with the tweaked prop.
