Well after a rough start (new engine required) with my 270, we've rented a house for a family vacation in a location that's about 6 to 7 hours @25mph
from my home base. Hoping maybe I can keep the speed more up to 30, but using 25 as a safe estimate.
Because of the Bravo III heat issues, I've bought and installed a drive shower. I'll be planning on stopping for fuel when 60% of the tank is empty. There will be about an hours worth of time when I'll be exposed to ocean size waves...think 6 foot+ if it's a bad day..
The other day a friend said "well the boat isn't really seaworthy" where he meant he wouldn't want to be on the open ocean with it. Am I over confident that this thing can take some waves?
Has anyone been out in the open ocean with the 270? How did it handle?
Anything else other than a drive shower for a 6+ hour journey?
I plan on stopping at a couple of places on the way, maybe even going three hours and stopping somewhere overnight.. not sure yet... anyone who's gone on a small journey with your 270 please chime in!
