        My fuel tank sprang a leak in the middle of last year which spoiled the fuel efficiency data I'd been collecting for most of the year. I just completed my second fillup with the new tank, so I'm now able to back out the exact fuel efficiency for the trips last year.

        5.7L MAG MPI 350 w/ Bravo 2 and 18" prop with 21" pitch
        I traveled 204.8 statute miles
        Used 91.569 gallons
        Engine ran for 28.1 hours
        Average speed 7.29 MPH
        Fuel consumption 3.26 GPH
        Fuel economy 2.24 MPG

        Average speed is low because I'm doing a large amount of trolling. The PO was in Portland and used the boat for salmon fishing, so the kicker is only 8 hp and can only push the boat 4.4 MPH at full throttle. It's perfect for trolling at 0.5-2.5 knots, but I like to troll at 5-7 knots, so end up using the main engine for a lot of trolling. 5-7 knots is right at or a little faster than hull speed. So I suspect it's dragging my MPG down, and I could probably hit 2.3-2.4 MPG during cruise. Not too shabby considering I was only hoping for 2.0 MPG when I bought it.

        Does anyone know how fast a 9.9hp or 15 hp kicker can push the 2556?

          Colleagues!
          I have on board the "B2556" sonar "US Marine LСD 5000 ", but there is no manual for operation. Who can help?

            Where is the bow bilge pump located? How to get there?

              Towards the front of the berth underneath the dinette. If you have a mattress in there, you'll have to pull it out or lift it up. There's a panel on the floor towards the front, which gives you access to the forward bilge and bilge pump.

              The pump is easily accessible but the thru-hull for the bilge hose is not. It's in the closet to the left of the cabin helm. Unfortunately that closet is too small for most adults to squeeze into. So if you're planning to change out that thru-hull (a good idea since it's plastic and is probably brittle with age after nearly 30 years), you'll need either the help of a child or small adult, or you'll have to dismantle the closet to reach it.

              Thanks!
              Another question: how to properly connect the stern bilge pump (in the engine compartment)? I have only a circuit breaker (float).
