The Fuel consumption is right at 1.3 L/M over the entire trip , and thats natucal ..... statute miles dont belong at sea !!!!!
the last 12miles was almost flat out at between 36-44knots, and our lower crusing speed was 28knots ....... into a 2 knot tide.
QCAMEL,I also feel a scorpion would be a more efficent hull that our redbay, as it is basicly a commercial Rib, and has more beam that your rib.... our top speed is 46knots on a good day with 2 on board ..... 44/45 is the normal , and with 10 people and 300l fuel its 38knots, in saying all that we only pull 5300rpm at wot ... so we need to pitch down to a 19" prop at some piont.
NOT THE SHARPEST KNIFE IN THE DRAWER
