Re: Motoring RPM

I've found that my PSC 34 cruises best at 2000 RPM. I did an RPM speed curve in flat water. But then after a few years of records looked at RPM and fuel consumption. 2000 RPM gave me over 5 knots burning 2 hours on one gallon of diesel.

I'm sure there are as many takes on this as there are sailors...
