We then dropped out visitors off and left Childs Play to head home while we continued to Herne Bay. Once well into the 2nd hour we were alowed to play with engine trim and i clocked 38knts @ 4500.
We headed back to Ramsgate in the dark having clocked 32nm, in 2.2 hrs and used 36li of fuel. These figures are from memory.
This morning i managed another few hours of boating
and the engine has now done a total of 5 hours. Run-in was complete at 4 hours and top speed so far was 42knts @ 5000 RPM. It was too rough to trim out anymore. I might
be over proped because i think readline will be hardwork to acheive but time will tell!
Summary figures from the instruments are:
Fuel Used: 72.1li = £55.50 @76.9p
Oil Used: 3.2li
