    These are all the improvements before the new 300 suzukie and moving the tank forward 5' I will post more photos of the changes soon. The Aumnum Arch was bought used for 750 bucks and was off a 27 Jupiter Steve Ran Last weekend to Walkers from Jupiter INlet Inlet ON the way home around the outside mantenalla from Grand Cay to JUpiter INlet fishing zig zag the whole way total fuel burn was 67 Gallons well over 110 miles running 32 mph in 2-3 seas.

    ok it is now June 2012.. Feed Up I gave the boat to Steve my brother in law told him what I belived the boat required. He Moved the fuel tank 5 ' forward there is no longer a step down into the cabin area. He added a 300 Hp Suzukie motor . Tonight the boat got on plan in about 5 seconds is almost perfect on cg and is getting about 2.4 mpg at 34 mph top speed was 45 we can now cruise at 33-35 mph Stve put 10 k into the boat including selling the 250 for 7 k.

    Andy - I was thinking about reducing the size of the main tank creating more below deck storage space in the rear and adding a tank in the cabin. I do not want to create bow steer so hence calculating the cg on the hull is very important. So you have the right idea

    Adding ballast in the cabin area is essentially what I want to do with the fuel relocation or a portion of the fuel relocated. Currently we hold 125 gal of fuel which is located centerline of boat from the helm bulkhead back 7' to the I/O bulkhead leaving about a 3' area which has now been converted to the bilge locker with a 24" hatch. There is a 12-14" space un occupied on either side of the existing fuel tank which could be modified for more fuel Saddle tanks and there is plenty of room in tha cabin area which can be modified to hold fuel 125 Gal fuel x 6.2# per = 775# Bracket 30" #200 Engine 560# get my drift

    Erie, I have owned the boat for about 18+ years now.. Originally set up with the Stern Based I/O no Jack shaft. We llive on the water w/out a lift so you can immagine that that old I/O just did not take that very well. The boat under went an extensive restoration project and looks great..and performs very well for its size. I have put a ton of money into the boate because my kids and wife have always loved it... I wish I could post some photos of everything done. On My wish list is 1. built in Live well at the Transome - Weight Problem again (I am going to buy one from Dusky and cut it in to the transome). 2. Floor boxes - under deck storage. 3. Move the fuel as forward as possible to create a larger below deck storage area. This is why determioning the CG with everthing measured is so critical. Ideally I am looking for a Naval Guy Like Micheael Peters who can run the cals to determine the feasability or an online program that I can purchase or run - Rhino? It is a project and what I and so manny more enjoy around here thanks wiley

    Tom They are Bennets and maybe I am off by a couple inches in each direction. I Nick of Nicks Creative in Riveria Fl added about a large a pair as possible for the room. If I run Full Trim down it helps but also compromises the speed
