We did get the speed and the fuel burn has not been calculated yet, but Bob was happy with the burn when he did a long run last week at high rpms he figured it to be around 10 mpg or better.

thanks George..........saw the article in Marlin this month good stuff. Can you believe that old bastard Jenning's beat on 82 fish in the last two moons, won the Boy Scout, had a 10 for 10 day...................god I miss that place. I was supposed to fish the October moon with them but Sam shortened the dates and now I cannot make em. They are already well over 100 for the year so no one is pushing to fish but ME................

Could you please give me your number again?

Thanks Collin

I am coming up on my 1 year anniversary with the Islamorada-18 and the 60hp honda- I could not be happier. There are no stress cracks, no wiring issues, and the painted surfaces clean up much easier than gel-coat. I admit that I am not the fastest skiff in the fleet in calm water- I can hit 42mph by myself and 38 to 40 with a passenger. I usually cruise between 30 and 35 mph and get 10 miles per gal. while I'm at it. When it gets windy I go by the HB 17.8s, Biscaynes, and Super Skiffs with their 90's and stay completely dry I don't even have to clean my sunglasses.
