Having fitted one of the new Yamaha 200's to a new 7.4m RIB -got to say how amazed I have been with fuel consumption.
For example, Cowes powerboat weekend:
Launched the boat at Yarmouth, went to Cowes. Race day we were patrolling off Cowes, mainly slow speed but a few blasts to warn yachts etc of race.
Then back to Yarmouth for coffee. Then off to Bournemouth via Hengistbury head to see part of the airshow.
Back to Cowes, stopping / waiting in Solent to see race boats back in. Also had a bit of a look round, did a quick photo shoot with a friend.
End of the day a run back to Yarmouth before coming out of the water.
Next time in the water straight to the fuel pontoon and filled up to the brim
