Question for Jon Fuller


I yesterday took the Crusader out on flat sea, which is a very rare phenomenon here in Malta.

With the new Yamaha 90, we were clocking 41 knots on the OEM preasure speedo. We were three guys in it, and not very light ones, weigh just under 300kg together.

And for about 2 and 3/4 hours of cruising (which included full throttle runs of not more than 3 minutes each - as per manual during break-in) I used 30 ltrs of fuel.

What do you think Jon? Since you had one of those, do you think the speed is a genuine reading?

Crusader, it's hard to say, an old style 1.3 boat (typicaly a 16 Ring, or Phantom with 90 Yam) will run a bout 55-57 mph or 48 knts ish, but it would be a lot lighter (in all respects lol), so it sounds about right, but there are so many variables, so as I say, it's hard to say.
