Hi Janet,

Had a bad computer breakdown and have been offline for a while. Looking for something that looks like a Chris Craft forum but not sure I've found it.

The latest topic on the Boat US Forum is freewheeling which means running with one engine on and the other off.

Turns out this saves about half the fuel with a loss of only about 1.3 knots in speed. Our test boat has gone from 0.75 nmpg at 10.5 knots to more than 1.5 nmpg at 9.2 knots. We're even getting some reports of 1.85 nmpg. A huge cost saving.

This is a trick that can be done with just about any twin engine boat so it probably applies to other boat brands.

I'm going to try to transition the discussion to this forum.
