Craig-

Don't know what you sail, but I've never seen a sailing barge that could do 14 knots under sail... your boat probably just handles like one...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

For what it's worth. I used precisely 62 gallons with my Westerbeake 30b, 74 engine hours - very little idling - mostly running about 2800 RPM. If I had to put a number on it I'd say 68-70 hours at 2800, 3-6 at less than that and 1 hour total time at 1000 rpm/idle.

I calculated at one point that my burn rate was .8 gals per hour at 2800 rpm, 2800 RPM gets me 7.2kts in flat water.

Got the alternator belt...ready to go..!

Chuckles,
Thanks for the info... Cat's get really good mileage... I bet a monohull wouldn't get near that at 2800.

Craig-

I can see why you have such problems sailing upwind... given your boat.

It's not the mileage Craig, it's the engine run time that matters.

The major difference is the age of the engine, technology has changed even in the past 5 years to produce a much more efficient diesel.

Yeah...good point...my 20 yr. old engine can't match the diesels of today.

If I ran my boat at 2800... it would suck down the diesel... heh..

I worked for BOSCH for many years. Do marine diesel engines use high pressure direct injection as do Audi/VW and others? (Bosch invented the technology...)
