I live near the San Juan Islands and am looking for a 34'LRC with twin Perkins 85's.
I've been quited 7.5 knots at 2000rpm burning aboyt 2 gph. Does this sound right?

I have the 34 LRC with 85 hp Perkins.*

I run at 2350 RPM for 8 Kts and 3.75 gph.* When running 2000 RPM, I'd guess I'm closer to 7 Kts and 2.75 gph.* 7.5 Kts on 2 gph seems like a stretch with twins...maybe 2 gph per side???*

Perhaps 6 Kts would get you 2.0 gph, but I rarely travel at that speed.
