Brezzin is on a distinguished road
I'm with sailhog on this. 200 miles in perfect conditions.

A yanmar 2gm (15hp 2 cyl) would burn about half to three qtrs of a gallon per hour at WOT. Variables would include sea state, wind speed and direction along with boat characteristics. Depending on the boat, you can do anywhere from 5 to 7 knots WOT.

(WOT=wide open throttle)
