good work ribnobber ! Glad the 'distraction' of a glassy blue warm Pacific hasn't affected you .

Like 1.52...but I bet Chris didn't ...and that was one of the calm bits where we sped up !

80l with the 140 suzi. We were one of the first boats in and I had to keep the kid (PeterM) distracted while we waited! Then the boy racer took over with the throttle on, off, on, off, on, off over the overfalls! Have to admit not seeing such flat waters I opened her up on the straits. So reckon we could have saved 10l

They do seem a good engine. Lovely and quiet. And compared to the etec boys there don't seem to be many breakdowns.

(I'd miss the opti V6 growl and punch though.)
