How much fuel did you have left from your full tank after you hit 48.3 kts?

Ha, not much burning 50 GPH. Haven't sold the Ribcraft, so I guess that's my economy RIB.

Me alone, 15 litres fuel - - shoots up to 51 then climbs steadily but chinewalking starts bang on 52 so I backed off. SOG and not 2 way average.

However with 2 weeks kit, tent, dinghy + engine, it still made 49 (Phil will verify ) however I think that was with the tide. With me and GD on board it struggled to get past 45 with a normal fuel load but loads of kit.
