Run Out


Vampire seems to have had a good reception all round. Bit Boring but covered 106NM over the 3 days and used exactly 186L of fuel, so it's averaged 1.75L Nm (should get slightly better when props changed) also it ran at full tilt Port S to Seaworks and was raced round a fair bit. With the 270L tank we should get a range of 154 Nm / 169 Statute. Will give a better review of the RIB / Suzi when we take her to Amsterdam in July.
I wonder if the new 350 Yamaha wil be as efficient V8????

Regards to all, tired and been finished off by Big Brother, I've decided that some of these human beings would only just make it to fender rank.
Off to bed.

[QUOTE=Rogue Wave;204735]

Then we found a 5.4 Searider with an inboard diesel, Which was a cracking boat. We had a go on it but the demo driver didn't extend the opportunity for me to get behind the wheel. But it was nice to meet Turbo diesel anyway

Ha Ha!!, would have loved you to have a go, but got told no one was to drive!!, maybe next time!!
