Westerbeke 27 - Diesel Consumption Rate

Hello,

I'm taking my boat up the ICW in a week or so.

Sabre 34
approx. 12,000 lbs
Shoal Keel
Westerbeke 27 - 1700 hrs.

If we assume calm conditions, little or no wind - calm seas....
engine is in good working order.

She cruises between 5 and 6 knots at 2100 rpm.

Very roughly speaking...
How many Gallons per hour can I expect to burn?

Again.. I'm not looking for exact numbers.. just a rough idea.

I'm digging through old posts...and the Westerbeke website... to no avail...

Thanks,
Craig
