Welcome aboard. ... the whole world is in a lock down ! Hopefully the vaccine will start up quickly so you can enjoy that boat of yours this summer!

Happy holidays

Thanks!!
I still have to try the boat .. it is very well maintained and has the new engine from 2015 Mercruiser 5.7 bravo3, duoprop ... now 90 hours, I hope it goes well on the Greek sea, in the afternoon there it has an annoying wave, which before with my 2150REGAL I was fine ... do you have experience on rough seas? Merry Christmas to you and your family..Armido

Hi Armido, I have a 1997 2400 SCR that I repowered in 2016 with a 5.7 Vortec long block and kept my 4bbl carb. The boat already had a Bravo 2 drive. I boat on the Chesapeake Bay with a typically wave height of 1-1.5 ft but can get to over 3 ft high and the typical wave period is 2.2 seconds. Under the typical wave conditions the boat handles very well but when the wave height gets 2.5-3+ ft I have to slow down and spray will break over the boat. Others have boated in higher wave height but with a much longer period.

Modena looks far from Greece. Are you moving there?

I love Italy, been there many times. It's my dream to live there, this weekend I was even checking real estate in lake Como here, it's so beautiful and peaceful there. I always enjoy my times there
