I was out on Lake Michigan on a Triton 2486 Wa last week. This boat was just re-powered with the new G2 Evinrude 300hp. This is a relatively heavy boat compared to other 24 walkarounds with a 4,850 dry weight. The boat came up on plane fast - and leveled out at a nice 36 mph cruising speed. The fuel burn was 2.5 mpg at this speed. One really impressive tool was the I-Trim. This Evinrude motor can sense when it needs trim and does it automatically. You can watch from the information screen on the dash. It was so cool to start at 0% and watch it increase the trim as the boat came up on plane. Also nice to watch mpg increase also! There are a few other bells and whistles like rpm increase button (1% either up or down), power steering assist, and E-link that I'll write more about. All in all - an outboard that will change the game IMO. ps - fishing report - 10 Lakers and Coho in 2 hours - only two of us on the boat (thanks Mike Z.) and a nice way to spend an early duck from work.

bullelkklr: How did the bow mounting of the exhaust port for the Espar heater work out for you? I am working on a similar installation of a D2 heater and am trying to decide whether to take the exhaust out the hull starboard side or put it where you did.

bullelkklr: Do you have any problems with melting coolers or being too hot to the touch on the gunnel from the exhaust? Is there any problems with exhaust fumes on the back deck from swirling exhaust when on anchor?
