Look for a travel cover. I got mine with the boat and use it from time to time.

Itís a great boat but you can watch that gas gauge drop with a lot of surfing or cruising long distances.

Enjoy the boat

The gas tank is smaller with the 7.4 compared to the 6.2?? Or just small in general? Advertised is 57 gallons or something but yeah its crazy. Filled it up tonight and rough estimate was about 9gph over the tank. Just getting used to the usage, but its so worth it!!

Are you talking about the cover that comes from the factory? I have the over the tower cover for it.

Gas tank is small in general for that boat. You need a lot of gas to feed that engine.

If you search the pages here you will find someone that added gas tanks in the back where the rear bags go.

Get an Acme on it and it will help with the gas and overall performance.

Oh nice! Are you still running the Acme 2841? Make a considerable difference in fuel economy?

Yes the 2841, it transforms the boat. You could even go a little lower on the pitch if you run really heavy with people and weight. 2915 looks interesting, but you might hit the rev limiter at WOT.

Acme also has a series of 15.50 props that might work well. The 2843 and 2919 would probably also be good options.

Call JT at Nettle's props. He has the best prices and service is amazing.

Along each side I did 100lbs under rear bags, 100lbs under the tower and 50lbs up front. Might change it around a little to compensate for the battery weight.

Ill definitely have to look into that thanks! Yeah I don't care about high speed, usually cruise 25-30mph at most. Usually not in a hurry.
