Fresh Survey in the last year. Fresh bottom job. New zink.
Cruise 9 MPH with all three engines running at less that 5 GPH.@1900 RPM''s with a 3000 redline.Boat is above average per survey, I bought the boat about  3 years ago. I have really not used it but a few times other than spending the night in it some on dock and off dock.  The boat only had 500 plus hours on it per hour meters before the retro fit with the diesel engines. It had the chrysler 330 gas engines it. They were pulled out along with the generator gas engine.  All the engines were replaced with new diesel engines. Currently the engines have about 30 hours. The generator engine has around 15 hours on it since replaced with the 2 cylinder diesel. Before it had around 765 hours. All this is written down before the exchange. At this time all the black water holding tanks were pulled out along with the heads. This gave a lot more room for a extra fuel tank. It also gave more room in the master bathroom head . There is still the shower and sink. It had a new incinerator toilet put in the front shower stall and that head removed. Everything was keep like it was except the removal of the heads. It wouldn't be hard to add a RV head and a holding tank if needed at a very low price.  The previous owner had set this boat up to do the great loop tour. It took him two years to finish the great job he did per the surveyer said and documented in the survey. The interior appears to be all original inside. Plenty of pretty wood and a lot of lighting.  Since this was all done he bought a house on the lake so said he didn't need a big boat anymore.He never did swap out the props to the props that Michigan props had calculated out to as what it needs to run its full potential. It has the original props on it which was a 24"x 24" if I am not mistaken on a 1 3/4" shaft.   I had the boat pulled out may 2016 for a bottom job. At this time I had the props pulled and took to a prop shop in Tulsa OK. He cut them down as much as he could and repitched them as far as he could safely go. It ran 6 mph at 1600 rpms with the stock props. After the repitching was done it ran 9mph at 2000 rpm. Red line is 3000 rpm's and can be ran all day at 2800 rpms with the new props installed. Like it is with all engines including the generator it burns around 3 GPH at 8 to 9 mph. I don't have the paper work with me but I believe they said it needs a 21"x 19" prop. The price was $900.00 each new. The boat is estimated to run up to 14 mph with the new props at under 5 gph with all engines. While the boat was out of the water I also had new trim tabs motors and lines replaced. Since that was done I moved the boat from a fresh water lake to the Arkansas River. While it was out of the water I had the props pulled again to get them fine tuned as one pulled a little more than the other. I also had noticed some blisters on the right side I wasn't told about at the bottom job so I had them repaired along with new zink and bottom paint. This was around 6 months ago.It has a custom removable rug on the rear deck. custom upper helm cover and rear door cover.
