Forum Fund Raiser Status

Hi All,
I appreciate that a number of folks have asked about contributing to a forum fundraiser to defer the licensing and operating costs. I will be posting something in a month or two with options for contributing. I took care of all the initial costs of out pocket for now to ensure we are covered in the transition. More to follow in the New Year.
thanks
Steve

  • 35 with Cummins 450's

    Looking for some real time performance #'s on the 35 with 450 Cummins. Cruise speed & RPM's, fuel burn, & overall performance.

    Thanks in advance guys!

        You are looking at roughly a 24/25 knot cruise @ ~2300 rpm with a ~28 knot @ ~2600 rpm top end. Fuel burn at cruise ~32 gph.

        35s are great boats -- they ride very well and fish like a much larger boat. The overall performance of that combination is good. Of course the newer engine options offer more power and as a result more speed and in some cases better efficiency.

        The Cummins 6C is an excellent base engine with a very large poplulation in recreational and commercial marine applications. Early 450s went through an injector upgrade (engines in our market were all campaigned) - 4 hole to a 5 hole nozzle which gave them better fuel spray characteristics . . . i.e. smoked less, ran a little better. Parts are easy to come by and won't leave your wallet empty and you crying at the parts counter, and in our market service/support is excellent for them!! You can expect thousands of hours of life out of a well maintained pair in a 35.

        I hope that helps. Feel free to call/e-mail/post back if you want more info . . .

          450's or 480's

          Thanks for the feedback. One more question, do you think the 480's are a better choice in power? Looking for a 24 knot cruise (honest) @ 85% load.

            The 480 CEs are the 450C with an elctronic fuel pump/governor an they do push the boat very well. Your honest cruise will be every bit of 26 knots in the 34 gph range. Same base engine, same solid track record and support network.

            Two 35s sitting side by side with all else being equal save for 450s in one and 480 in the other --- I would choose the 480s. It is only a 30hp jump, but the electronic fuel pump/governor gives the torque curve a kick in the pants . . .
