    I really do not know much about the 23. I know there was a team that campaigned one a few seasons ago but they moved up.

    Comfortably Numb had one think and Chris Blanton of CK Blanton Marine Electronics in Myrtle Beach, Sc (don't have his number with me) just bought one to play with. He has run many 36's on the tour and knows more about running Yellowfins than I have met. He is our local guru.

    I recently purchased the green 23'. It has twin 200 opti's. I haven't had a chance to get it out and really see what it will do because the weather here has been terrible. I did talk with a previous owner and he told me that it will run mid 60's but im not sure about fuel economy.

    Did you have the option of twin F250's? I wonder how fast you can go with those options...

    Can you post some pics too thanks

    I'd love to post pics but boat is 8 hours away right now....going to be awhile.

    No option for 250s, I believe the 200s were max.

    If I remember correctly that boat with 21P Mirage props fuel burn was 2.8 at 4000rpm-40mph which gave that boat over 500mile range with the fuel she held. Hope the weather holds out and you get a chance to run it. BTW, are you still interested in those spare props?
