If you run on one engine at well below hull speed you should get near 3 nmpg. Be careful trany can take free wheeling - some can't. In that case... off-engine's shaft needs to be locked for no rotation. Bork Warner Velvet Drive trany can free wheel... at least our 1977's can. Check with trany manufacturer before you let it free wheel.
I do. Pictures from haul out after 5 years in water in 2014.

They are 2.57 to 1 Velvet Drives. Spins 22 by 20 props.

I did find my port motor was way out of alignment, actually dragging the shaft on the shaft log. So had to move front of engine over a half inch, etc... I got it lined up within .005 " now.

Thanks, that is interesting. Less than 1/3rd hull drag at 5 knts compared to 7 knts. Different prop condition-drags are notable too.

"Cost" and "boat" in the same sentence are irrelevant to me. I have totally gutted and rebuilt three (37', 43' and 38') boats and spent far more on each of them than I could ever hope to recoup in my widest dreams.

The difference is I knew what I was doing and wanted to do it anyway. The problem comes from noobs and dreamers who have no idea what they are getting into when they buy a $15k, 38' trawler from Craigs List. The yards I visit are littered with the broken dreams of the uneducated.

How much is too much?

We bought a "demi-refitted" boat. It was cheaper and in far better condition than the two other KK42's available at the time and we have no regrets. Whoever bought "Stout" got one heck of a boat.

needs some TLC...

The PO kept saying "You understand you're buying this as is, right?"

It's coming up on a year since I bought it and I am making some headway. But unfortunately I put a bigscreen on the boat and I spend most of the time daydreaming about where I am going to go in it when I get done. LOL
