I have Lenco Tabs on my 22 Boca and a in-line fuel monitor.  It really makes a difference.  You can trim the hull to maximum efficiency (is there such a thing) and watch the speed on the GPS while the fuel burn rate drops some.  Excellent for long trips!

Boat looks great and thanks for sharing.

I think I'm gonna go with the 18"x12" Lenco and add the Autoglide in the future. Seems like a really good system. One less thing to worry about when your concentrating on catching fish but saving fuel at the same time.

Got the gel coat on today and looks good. The color on the stern doesn't match that good but once the bracket is one you shouldn't see it.

My bracket is on island now. I just need pay for duties and should have it by Wednesday and installed by the weekend. I'm getting really excited now!

Chasin,

My first thoughts from the latest pics is Panga's make great dive platforms.  I picture a diver being able to gear up and enter the water safely and climb back on board safely.  Looks really nice!

Thanks guys. I'm getting real excited now. I hoping the motor will here either this week or next week. Fingers crossed!

It definitely makes the boat feel much bigger having the platform in the back. It's going to make getting on and off a lot easier when at Rum Point on Sunday's.  Grin

Just thought I would chime in. Motor hasn't arrived yet, order was placed on 24th March and was supposed to take 2-4 weeks to arrive but is ending up to be 9 weeks. It's scheduled to arrive on island on the 25 May. I hope to have it installed that week.

It the mean time I added some courtesy lights to the center console that shine on the deck. Installed new LED speader lights and an underwater drain plug light. I was a bit skeptical about it but it turned out to be pretty bright. It screws right into the garboard drain and is supposed to be 20watts. Will have to wait until I splash her to see how it looks in the water. I also installed the new helm and hydraulic lines as well as some Lenco trim tabs. I'm excited to see how much better they make the boat ride.

Oh, had to do some trailer work too  Undecided

Anyways....here's some eye candy....

Well the wait is finally over.......time to have some real fun again! Tested a couple props and found the Saltwater Series II to be the best.  I think it is 15x19, will double check tomorrow.

51mph @ 5700rpm with 50 gallons of fuel and 2 - 200lb guys.  Cruise was at around 32-33mph @ 3300rpm burning 4mpg. I wasn't on the boat at the time of testing but did take it out for a spin after.  I will pick her up tomorrow and start the break in this weekend.

I am really impressed on how she runs and handles with the outboard. OMG, the tabs are nice too!!!  That thing has some nice torque too.  I am really really happy with the set up and glad to be on the water again.

Thanks for all the support you guys gave me through the process! God bless!

Thank you guys too! I couldn't have done it without the help and input of you guys.

Here's a picture of one happy SOB after taking delivery and bringing her home.

Going to start the break in tomorrow and may carry a rod or two!   Tongue
