Lying some 620 nautical miles east of North Carolina's Outer Banks, Bermuda can offer some righteous seas from time to time. Our test day, however, wasn't one of those times, with unchallenging calm and sunny conditions. Trolling off the edge of the reef at slow idle (594 rpm), we ran at 7.5 knots with our lures in two distinct, clear alleys between the centerline subsurface prop wash and surface turbulence from the passage of the hull. Standard idle (697 rpm) bumped us up to 8.7 knots using 6 gph. Boomer's extremely prudent captain spent much of the 29 hours it took to get from Morehead City, North Carolina, to Hamilton, Bermuda, traveling at about 10 knots burning a mere 10.5 gph. At that speed, this 76-footer enjoys a passage-making range well in excess of 2,500 nautical miles.
