Hi, Thanks and more questions

Hello chaps,
Firstly thanks for all of your help with my queries over the last week, New to Ribs and the help has been fantastic, Ta
Couple of queries !! I have a patch to put on a small leak and have cut a piece of material to fit, I wondered if the corners of the patches should be rounded off rather than leaving them as a corner ?
Last one ish (today) ha ha is I have a 15hp Johnson 2 stroke, late 1990's. I wondered what sort of consumption I should expect with a mix of planing/pottering ? Also not sure what size fuel tank to get as yet ? Prob be as small as practical as I would like to keep weight down.
All the best, Colin.

I would say yes round the corners - less likely to catch.

Fuel consumption is generally 1/3 of the HP at Wide Open Throttle WOT per hour - so 5l/hour in your case, slightly less for a 4 stroke or if not at WOT.
