There seems to be a continual need for data regarding fuel consumption/speed/props etc - thereís always a thread about it.
What do people think about doing a RIBnet version of the Performance Bulletins
on the Yamaha website
We could have a form on the website to collect data. RIB/Engine make model, weight of boat, prop model/make/dimensions and then fuel/speed info. Fuel flow meters seem to becoming more common so it wouldn't be too difficult for people to scribble down fuel consumption/RPM/speed. The site could then create a little graph etc. If people don't have fuel data then most people seem to know there average fuel consumption which would still give an idea.
I know that there would be no data control but I think it could still be useful. We all seem to wait for magazines to publish group tests, which as seen recently, donít always produce useful results.
