I have the 200 which will cruise at 30knts using about 32lph on a heavy 7.5m boat so not sure where the 50lph comes from. I get about 42knts on 50lph.

She was in Poole harbour.

When I scrape the area with my finger nail it just flakes off. As I said I was told that the part of the tubes that remain in the water were painted with an anti foul paint. I have found on the net several such paints such as Polymarine SP54 Hypalon Antifoul.

Has anyone used this before, and if so what sort of prep would be needed?
