Yamaha FT60 DET HT

We have acquired a nearly new Yamaha FT 60 DET High thrust, would anybody know the weight of it?

Swithering as to whether we should put it on the SR5 for the Easdale Rib Rendezvous. It would save on a fair bit of fuel.

113kg according to Yamaha

Not bad when you consider your 3 cylinder Yammie 75hp is 119kg.

Blimey! That's impressive, it's a fair lump compared to the 75hp.

Cheers for sorting that link out.

Might be a little heavier than I thought. Here's another link and it says 125kg.

Either way its only a few kilos.

We are undecided, if we put on the F60 we could run to Easdale from the front door here, don't fancy doing it in an old 75 2stroke.

How much fuel will you need for the trip and total miles covered?

Using my Navionics app on the iPad it works out at 36 nm to Easdale, going on the basis of our 75 using somewhere in the region of 0.8 litres/nm we are looking at a smidge under 30 litres one way so 60 litres incl the return.

We're equipped for carrying 125 litres on board. We wouldnt want to buy fuel down there as we already have it.

Loch Eil, we could launch from the Fort itself but it'll only save us five miles or so.

You're doing alright out of that old Yam at 0.8l/nm on an SR5.4. My old Twatsoo 60/70 2-stroke drank 1.0l/nm on my SR4.7.

For what its worth I worked out its not far off 50/50 between towing and motoring between dunstaffnage & Easdale at 0.83L / nm on the boat - 28MPG towing.

And before you mathematics jump in, there is a non numerical "rather be driving the rib" factor in that "50/50".. -it is chuffing close tho'.
