    I thought I would post some of my cruise speeds and fuel burn #s.
    I have an 03 40 Open with the Yanmar 6CXGTE2 engines, they are rated at 500hp .

    These #s are with about 250 gallons of fuel, all my normal gear and 2 people.
    Running down the beach in a 2 foot light chop,

    2000 rpm - 18-19 knots - burning 20 gallons per hour
    2200 rpm- 21 knots - burning 25 gallons per hour
    2500 rpm- 24 knots- burning 32 gallons per hour
    I have seen 30-32 knots at 2950 WOT

    In the am leaving with a full crew, full tank and all the essentials for an offshore day I see about 21 knots at 2400 rpm burning about 32 gallons per hour. That is also normally in a head sea.

    Nice fish! But more interested in the deck? What product is that? How long have you had it?
