At wide open throttle 2x200HP will be using at most 180 ish L of fuel per hour. But I am assuming that boat would be good for 40 knots with that power. Portsmouth to cowes is what 10 Nm ish? So the return trip at WOT (the least efficient speed) would be half an hour - so probably used less than 100 L...

This started off as abit of a wreck but nearly finnished and getting some use out of it now!

not the fastest boat but very comfortable and economical to run, didn't cost much to build but a lot of work

Perhaps they mistook the Solent for the Shatt al Arab and ended up prisoners of the Bembridge Revolutionary Guard!!
