    Re: My offer accepted on a 45C

    I found the old note book from when we ran her from Ft Pierce to Va Beach years ago. It looks like the average was about 18 gph total 1980rpm at 12 knots. The trim tabs did not work and the props were a touch smaller at 26x26. Hope that helps.

    That sound a bit low on the gph.

    I have 8v53s and at 2100 burn 23 gal/hour.

    Helps A lot.

    Mine has no Trim Tabs and 26x30 props. 350 HP 8V71N Thinking 8.5 knots is me. Most trips will be 50 to 60 miles round trip for 2 to 10 days at a time. Huntington Beach to Catalina Island and Back. With lots of Yellow tail Hopefully.

    I was wondering if the boat was a bit over propped.

    Mike, if you had a more accurate tach it would help to tell if it was over proped. At times during the sea trail it seemed we were getting as much as 2500 RPMs at WOT, which surprised me, but not sure about those tachs. John
