Re: Jeanneau Fantasia thoughts?
Anacortes is about 50 miles north of me, not sure I will be up that way any time soon, if I do I will try to get a peak. as I am obviously closer to it than you! LOL
rvs looks like how my family of 6 went land rv'ing, and the previous owner of my boat did with their two girls. 7 gals of fuel is a bit tite. I carry a 5 gal jug when doing an 8-10 hr motor potential. I get about .5-.75 gals a hr out of my twin cyl 20 hp yanmar. I would think a 10hp single cylinder would be closer to .5 than the .75 that I am closer to, even a gal+ an hr if I push the go fast lever and go in the 6-6.5 range vs 5.5-6 knot speed. My boat at about 2' long probably has a bit more room, but will say, generally speaking rvs's comments about their fantasia is equal to my Arcadia.
There are a couple of reviews at the jeanneau-owners site, as is the good old boat review of my boat from the July/aug 2010 issue.
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
