Big Duck's single 260hp Volvo/Chevy will just barely get her on plane...about 25 mph, papers say she'll do 30. Only did that once. We usually run her at 5 to 8 mph and get 2mpg in chop/windy conditions and 3 or more in calm conditions. Nice thing about gas is they don't care about load like diesels do.

Any boat can get to the Bahamas in the proper weather.
