RIBase
5.4 with a 90 should do just shy of 40 knots.

Expect about 1.2 miles per litre at mid 20s cruising speeds.

Mine will do 41-42 knots with a 90hp 2 stroke.
I cant be sure about fuel consumption but I seem to be able to spend hours pottering about at various speeds & I dont manage to use the full 2 x 24 litre tanks of fuel.

cool stuff, thats sounds good...40 odd knots would be perfect, id like to cruise at about 25kts so id say 90hp should do her good

90 is the right lump for a 5.4 searider
