I currently have a 135 V6 on my rib and although I knew it would drink the fuel at WOT I thought it may be more frugal at a slower speed.
Went to yarmouth from calshot last Sunday and back just at a nice steady pace of the region of 20kts and ended up using about 50 litres of fuel with 2 adults and a dog.
Boats in general are not cheap things to run but I was hoping for better consumption than I have currently.
Especially as the fuel tank on board my boat will not allow me to go much further than yarmouth without running out of fuel.
Would a smaller engine I.e 100hp or 115hp be really that much better or are all engines just absolute abysmal on consumption.
And should I just accept being skint if I want to run the boat
