1. No.
2. Yes.
3. Sorta.

10 kts on a 61 with 692 probably more like 6gph per engine.

692 at 650 is a way-high rating for that motor, not good for long life unless it was run at hull speed. Also, parts support is iffy, computer control is old generation with support iffy. I'd avoid these unless a super deal. And even then...

3176/96 not a bad engine, but aftercooler issues took many out early. Be very cautious, get it checked out well.
