Here's my thinking:-
The 115 opti is the same weight (and block I think) as a 90 opti.
Opti fuel economy at WOT is around the same as my Yam 85.
Cruising at say,25-30 knots with a 115 Opti will mean less RPM than with a 90-and it's the higher end of the rev range that the fuel economy suffers. so in theory
I can use a bit less fuel at normal cruising speed and increase my cruising range.
And go like the blue blazes on a nice day
I'm carrying 135 litres with all my tanks full and 85 litres of that can be moved anywhere in the boat so balance isn't too much of a problem.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
