I think it was 800nm, black hawk had updated reed valves this year and we were running about 0.7 litres per km which is about 1.5 litres per nm? Fully kitted out osprey vipermax 7.2m - evenrude e-Tec 250hp raised about an inch this year with a 4 blade ss prop! Bushrider will have the exact info

The fox air shocks were awesome, they are impossible to bottom out. They come with a pump to adjust the pressure. We tried 80, 50 and 35psi

We didn't go any lower than 35 as Bushrider was getting good travel, however I was not getting the full travel as I'm lighter...

I sat the whole way round with no issues though. We do 50/50 of the helming each so it was best to have the seats set the same.

Very impressed! I want some now

thanks for the info.

be interesting to compare the outboard to the diesels that went in terms of fuel burn.

i guess it was circa 650 quid in fuel for the osprey based on those numbers, not too shabby i would suggest.

one day i'll do the same trip....one day.

cheers
