The average speed of all those miles is likely to be in the range of 35-40mph. Therefore the hours are around 2650!
Come on all the big outboard producers, the time for a Diesel outboard has arrived and first to market could make a killing

yes i was on about my vw van ! just after few on here say newish car no good, i just think that if you treat it well, you got half chance, back to outboards, am sure yam could do toyota block on 250, that would weigh no more than there 300/350 might not be good for 7/8 mt rib, but on wide beam 8.5 weighing 1000 kg plus fuel it sit happy at 25/30 knts, and most be happy burning 15 lph i would say
thourghts ?
