Or if anyone has a 6.4m (ish) RIB with a 140hp 4 stroke tell me how much fuel they burnt.

Thanks.
Its approx 60Nm to circumnavigate IoW

What's with these engine covers? We've had two Optis in over 15 yrs, sat on a mooring each year and cowlings are immaculate.

I got mine to cover the branding for London 2012, but it also hides a lot of the knocks that the engine already has...
