Petrol vs Diesels
As our illustrious moderator and administrator rightly points out, petrol is only around 40p a litre in the Channel Islands! But, diesel, again is cheaper than this, 34p a litre, I think? I still am not convinced that a diesel engine will out- perform an outboard on sheer performance, particularly for water-skiing. Since I always seem to have half the island on my boat and a 'bath-plug' type rugby lock person hanging at the end of my ski-rope on a mono-ski, I sincerely doubt if any diesel engine inboard will have the gruntish acceleration to pull this guy out! What do you reckon?
