Marki, I would be interested to get an idea of the fuel consumption you get from the 225 Opti.

As far as a channel crossing goes I would love that, however coming from Newcastle makes it a little more complicated, what dates are you thinking of?

Scorpion Quality

Let's just hope that your new Scorpion is better built than the Scorpion i know about, the boat has been a pain in the a.. for the owner.

[QUOTE=qcamel] Marki, I would be interested to get an idea of the fuel consumption you get from the 225 Opti.

Fuel consumption has been much better than I initially thought. In June I went from Hamble to Isles of Scilly - 522 miles max speed 44 knots average speed 19 knots - mixed conditions 0.75 litres per mile and approx 16 litres Optimax oil. Naturally higher consumption at full throttle.I generally allow 1 litre per mile as a rule of thumb. I have always been a Yamaha fan and owned Honda 4 stroke as well but would have no hesitation in recommending Optimax.

They have completed the trip.

Met both the guy's at SIBS (we sponsored the comms for them)
Two really nice, down to earth chaps.
Not full of their own P**S and importance and raise some funds for a worth while charity.
Having just lost a very dear friend to cancer and knowing he spent his last few months in a hospice, well done to both Mike and Ken.

I think these adventures are made so much more worth wild when they are for charity and not just because "its there" type events IMHO of course.

Perhaps not the best balanced and informative statement ever to be posted

More info would add to the story far more.
