      First Time

      Because Of The Conditions I Ran Her About 2200 To 2500 Rpms.i Was Doing About 22 To 24 Knts And Burning 1.2 To 1.3 Gallons Per Hour..i Feel As Though 2500 Is The Best Cruise Rpm For All Purposes..i Had Only One Window To Go Out Because The Weather Had Been Rough The Week I Was In The Outer Banks.. But According To The Smart Crafts @ 2500 Rpm Your Running About 26 Knts And Burning 1.1,2 Miles Per Gallon... I Have Been Told That Those #,s Will Get Better Because The Motors Are New And Tight. Because The Wind Was Blowing About 20 To 25 Knts From The S.w. It Was Inevitable To Not Get Sprayed....with The Side Curtains Down My Crew And I Stayed Completly Dry Going Out And Commig In.. After Owning A 33 Grady White Iam Completly Convinced That I Made The Right Choice. She Is A Great Sea Boat... I Need More Trips To Nail Down The Definitive #,s You Might Be Looking For But So Far Iam Excited About Owning The 32.. Ironically Where I Keep My 32 There Is A 35 Cc Moored Right Next To Me .. The Day I First Tied Her Up My 50 Year Sea Captain "buddy" Looked At The Two Side By Side And Said Astoundingly "shes A Big 32".. So Look At Both ..the Difference In Dollars Is About $ 100,000 Grandes.. I Will Be Back To The Outerbanks In About 3 To 4 Weeks If You Want I Would Be Glad To Take You And Show You How She Runs .. I Hope Ive Been Helpfull To You.. Chuckabear
