Not always.
For example the twin diesels I'm talking about(60' bayliner running qsm-11s) are rated for 30.8 gallons EACH at max output.
EDIT: looks like the boat in question is running detroits a quick google shows 17.5gph each at 2300 rpm. 35gph total.

That's how I found Insualtor Drive.

It's still there on Google Maps. Looks like most, if not all, of the boats are gone, though.

Nick's Fish House and Grill

I can't remember the name, but it was right up under Route 2 as you come into Baltimore from the south. The entrance was off of Insulator Drive.

This was back in the mid to late 90's. I moved away in 2001.

When I was living in Annapolis and working in Baltimore, every day driving to work, I would pass this old boatyard, with dozens of seemingly abandoned wooden boats up on blocks.

Finally, one day, I stopped in and asked the owner about the boats and if any were for sell.

He told me, "Pick out any one you want, load it up on a trailer, and I will sign the Bill of Sale to you for free the second you have it off my property."

You have a good B in Law there - listen to him.

Two thumbs down.
Actually, if you're really lucky it can be 20+ gallons EACH engine.

I was dialing in some settings on a big bayliner and looked at the fuel readouts while I was tweaking a response from the system(integrating thrusters and engines into a computer controlled system), and they were showing 22.4 and 25 gallons respectively.

I actually went in on a 43' wooden power-boat, it had a recent 100, 000$ refit, brand new teak decks, brand new interior etc. Never out in the rain since and came with a boathouse, already in the water... Paid 10 cents on the dollar for the refit and still would have lost money if we hadn't caught the bottom issues that were being concealed at the last minute. This boat has none of those upsides and a whole lot of downsides... I can't see it being anything except a fantastic drain of energy and money.

RIP Pacemaker..... Would love to have some of your lumber when they cut you up. I made these from a little bit of a Chris Craft Constellation Mahogany cut up many years ago.

trivets for the galley. (need glue sanding and oil)

Should we stick to fiberglass. Or is Wooden ok? We are brand new to boat ownership. My brother in-law who has a few boats said no way, wood rots.


So what do you guys think? We are not in any rush to own a boat just yet. But for under 10k for a 44ft boat it's tempting.

however, the boat is currently on land, so I don't think we would be able to test drive it.
