And the rest. PER engine.

I would guess 60+ imp galls/hour each, flat out.

It's feasable that this badboy could burn a total 150 galls an hour flat out. Or about 900 / hour at marina pump prices.

Would guess at no more than about 70mph, 'maybe' 75.

Blimy, Just think 1/50th of the value of the boat in fuel for every hour you run it. May be fit a pair of Rolls Royce Nimbus engine, 600-900bhp each, probably half the fuel consumption on kerosene (28 sec heating oil 37pence per litre) look like they would fit in there nicely and under 300kg each.

Now that would sound awesome.

I think the problem with these older boats is that they would never be worth the investment you put into them, they need big horsepower to achieve decent speeds, and in many cases you could buy a more modern more efficient boat for pretty much the same money.

Maybe not worth the investment, but when out crushing 6 footers and all the new boats stay parked in the harbor because they can't take it, well, I'll take a 46 Cougar any day.

No argument from me on that - still don't fancy the fuel bill for those though!

Were the BPM's Italian motors? Were they reliable? Could be another nail in the coffin!

Hi glen,
Just been a walk round Hamble Point Marina & noticed that the Cougar 46 was missing, after making some enquiries my informant told me that it was sea trialled on wednesday where it achieved a remarkable speed of 42 knots (VERY IMPRESSIVE) however it's new owner must have been impressed as it was seen leaving the premises on thursday by road! however in it's place on Inwards Sales Lot is a Riva Ferrari which must be so fast it has blown it's wing off it's mountings!!!! the trim tabs were designed & installed by the legendary MICKEY MOUSE
