D3 160 Humber 7m
Hi there I have a 7m Humber Ocean Pro with a D3 160HP running a SX leg. Prop is a 4 blade 14.25x19 Ali but looking at a Stainless type probably 14x 20 imported from the USA.
I carry 8 divers with 2 crew at a speed of 30Knts at around 3300Rpm.
I would have rather fitted the DPX leg on a 190Hp as the weight that divers carry theses days is...loads of it.
Fuel is just under 1lt per 1NM.
My mate is running an 8 Humber with a 240Hp Yanmar with a bravo 3 top speed 40Knts 2up. Fuel at 1Lt per 1NM so only a fraction heavier.
I have had a bad run on the D3 but have heard that the new version is better.... electronics and water don't seem to mix well.
feel free to PM me and if you are close pop over for a ride.
