I am guessing the house boat is a planning hull and at 10 or so knots is really sucking the fuel..especially if loaded down.


The Bayliner may be a little to the semi-displacement side of shapes and much more efficient in the 10 knot range.


Had he ran at 8 or 20+ knots the numbers may have been closer..but a badly fouled hull and gear throw everything off.


All a wild guess..but....
