I think my boat is a little slow compared to others, but I am loading the engine properly as I can just get to 2500 rpm at WOT.

1 gal per hour seems low to me as well from others I have talked to. They are usually at 2 gal per hour.
I MIGHT buy 1 gal per hour at cruise if you are willing to go that slow...especially if you have a foul current....but 1.5 g/h wide open on a 120? Nope.....

Unless the boat is severely underpropped therefore not loaded at WOT. That would be the only way.

Hi Guys,
I listed the boat on Yachtworld, and dropped the price for a quicker sale. I'd like to see her go to a good home before I move (I can help deliver).
