I just back from another trip on the boat and this time I fueled up just before we left and again when we returned.
The trip was 35 km (40.25 miles) ,Cruising at about 3500rpm we were averaging 23 knots (26.45 mph). The trip took 1.5 hours in a light chop and we used 58 litres of gas (12.77 imperial gal, 17.5 US gal)\
This works out to 2.3 miles per US gal.
The boat obviously had a full tank of gas and 360 lbs of people.
The prop is a 19p stainless and wot is 5600.
Does this sound like the numbers are where they should be?
