I'll try again...having spent a whole life working in mpg I have trouble getting the head around fuel consumption data that isn't imperial mpg. So, when finger trouble with the calculator screwed the litres/nm figure I wasn't clever enough to spot it. Thanks Malthouse!

8.35 imp m/g = 7.26 nm/g = 1.60nm/litre = 0.63litre/nm

Unless, you know different Form a queue here...

Not with a hang-over it dose not… the worse day I spent afloat was doing safety cover for a regatta on a rib with an old school 2 smoke on the back. Sitting with the sun beating down, bobbing about and smelling 2/ oil.

Worst day I had was at the Lifeboat College, went for one drink to see what the bar was like ended up playing drinking Jenga, left about 1 or 2 am
Tried going in the kitchen on the way back to me room then met huw in the bath.
Next morning was couple of hours in the class room followed by RIB work with a nice tight neck seal and two 2 stroke Yams behind me.

Best bit was the Irish lad spued his ring up on the boat and hadn't been out the night before!
