2013 stats

Not that I'm bored, but I've just been summarising log data for 2013
Trips: 19
NM covered: 335
Fuel used: 283l
Consumption 0.84 l/NM
Hours Afloat 68.5

Bearing in mind a late start to the season - foul weather at Easter - and an early finish (end of Aug) due to autumn family commitments, It averages at a trip per week.

The stat I don't want to think about is the / trip - c. 75 per outing on annual/ running costs (fuel, servicing, insurance, storage etc...). Still that's the incentive to get out even more in 2014!

How does this compare with others?

I don't count. If most people worked it out they'd probably sell up.

i never work it out properly, but have a rough guess at cost per hour for those who ask. as a hobby, it costs what it costs and thats it. you do it as and when you can afford to. even my wife says its better than someone having a horse as you just dont use it if you have no money - a horse still needs feeding and stabling etc.
i often find that you get pissed off at times when you see how much it costs to fill the car up with fuel, but ive never complained once about the cost of filling the boat up!

That's true, especially when we're usually 4 up. Only 5/ per head /hr- that starts to sound better!

Maybe I should factor in the cost benefit of catching some freshdinners, and the costs avoided by not spending other forms of family occupational therapy!

Not really worried about the cost - the fixed costs are the fixed costs, fuel is fuel. Still can't beat it for blowing the cobwebs away / getting to some great places! And of course the pleasure of meeting up / conversing with Ribnetters.....priceless.

What is it worth to get away from a crowded Jurassic Coast beach, on a hot day in August, and not see or hear anybody for hours?

Priceless!

Yamaha should have a setting on the instruments so that when the consumption goes over a certain level the dial switches off.
