    Awesome boat.  Though I'd hate to hit a log or bottom with the pods.  Props first and no give like an outdrive.  At least boats with shafts have some degree of a keel to protect the expensive hardware.

    I know someone that had been looking at that boat for a while and decided not to buy it.  He wasn't sure about having the pod drives in our area of boating, especially the shallower raft-ups we like to do.

    as far as fuel usage, it would burn around 30gph at ~25kts.

    Nice looking boat.  Be a handy upgrade from a 342 :)

    So Michael, your saying that sterndrives get better fuel milage than V drives or straight shafts? Is it due to the adjustable angle of the drives?

    @Jhofmann.  Outdrives are more efficient due to the gear ratios. Everything else is pretty much direct drive.
