Graeme and Kevin in Topaz, then Andre with Wiesia, Jelly, and Tiger in Seahawk, then (a prize if you can make it out) a yellow person and another yellow person in Prime Rib II (i think!)

And here is the boat that used substantialy less fuel than me... so come on Mike, how much? - i must say i was very taken by both your's and Andre's boats given their (relative) ease and launching ability but DIESEL.

I did about 80Nm over the 3 days which fits with my normal estimate of 2li per mile (ouch) - given you did, (guessing) 35Nm i reckon about 20li diesel???

PS . as for the DIESEL then yes not a lot was used .

The Mercruiser 1.7L with Alpha one drive is the right diesel for a
6 mtr rib

Well Daniel, I'm not exactly sure. The thing is, I havenít actually bought any fuel yet this year.... but to give you an idea....
I can tell you exactly how many miles I did at the weekend from my downloaded GPS tracks. It was 71.4 miles. As well as that, this year I did a 72 mile trip to Littlehampton and a bit of the IOW in April, and also about 50 miles at the East Coast Rivers trip the other week. That's a total of just under 200 miles. The tank holds 150 litres... and it is now in need of a fill. That comes in well at my estimate of just under three quarters of a litre per mile.... so for the 71 miles I did at Plymouth, thatís about 53 litres... at 30 p per litre = £16. I told you you'd feel bad!

Mike - I used to have twin 2 strokes and no money - C

PS.... Charles... how much did you use?

If I worried about my fuel usage I might as well give up ribbing/boating now!

Nice to meet up with you all but the weekend passed so quickly, that time ran out before I got to speak with everyone. I spent the following week moving along the south coast visiting Weymouth and Poole and various other places (no massage parlours). I didn't take many pics because my crew needed constant supervision and it was hard to get him out of the marina fry-up depot. Great crack and here's to next time.
