Okay just got the mileage.

82 Nautical Miles travelled. 67 Litres of fuel used. Average = 1.22 Nautical Miles per Litre.

Quietly impressed seeing as I was convinced I had used much more fuel. We spent most of the trip running at near or on 5000 revs which scares me. Must have been something to do with smooth seas and good constant running. We did keep good formation and must have looked impressive to any onlookers.

0.71 l per nm, that's pretty good.
Am hoping I don't have to put in 115 l and that it's just a calibration problem, not sure though. But given I spent so much of it between 5000 and 6000 rpm, not too worried. We'll see. And the Searider would not have used much less I don't think, and could not have kept up!!!

Anyway, worth it for a great day!

Thanks Andy,

Still some things like seat backs for driver and co-pilot, A-frame, decent VHF aerial etc to sort, oh and some trimming lessons
