Fuel Consumption, GB42

Fuel Consumption, GB42

Postby Mikecambrai » Sat Aug 27, 2016 5:34 am

Hi, I would like to know the fuel consumption figures for my Woodie 42 with twin Leyman 120's at various cruising speeds. I have seen a spreadsheet somewhere with this information and also running with one or 2 engines, but having a senior moment I have lost the link.
Can anyone help?

Some years ago, when we were preparing for our extended cruising on the West Coasts of Canada, US, and Mexico, I ran a series of speed tests on Dreamer, an Alaskan 45, and uploaded it to the Manuals Section under Documents here on GBO.

If that is what you refer to, the link is http://www.grandbanksowners.com/member_ ... Trials.xls

The information should be close to a GB42. Keep in mind that Dreamer was outfitted for extended cruising and full of supplies, so heavy in the water. We had to raise the boot stripe and swim platform. :)
Good luck,
Bob Lowe
