  • CC28 Range

    Hello to all you fellow boaters here at Carolina Classic. I live in Staten Island and I am currently looking at a CC28 with 315 Yanmars. Will the 220 standard tank cover an overnight trip to the Hudson canyon (90 miles each way) with trolling in between? Dealer estimates close to a 400 mile range with those engines and the standard tank.

    Thanks,
    Rich

    I don't have the Yanmars and others who do will chime in but 400 miles seems like a big over estimation of the boat's range. With the std fuel tank and KAMD300's I would say a realistic range estimate for a tuna run with at least half a day of trolling in the middle is closer to 240 miles round trip and that would be pushing your margin for fuel reserves.

      On the edge

      I do Falmouth -> canyons which is 92-114 nmiles each way. I burn between 160 gallons on a day trip to 220 gallons on an overnight depending on sea conditions.

      I was just reviewing my 6 years of canyon and it pretty conclusively says an overnight is 180-190 gallons if the sea state is calm, 200-220 in rougher conditions.

      Carry a bladder or 6 5 gallon fuel jugs and you'll have a reasonable reserve.

            You can get 56 gallons of extra fuel tankage installed in the boat at the factory during the build process. The water and wast tanks are moved inboard and to the front of the engines and the extra saddle fuel tanks are mounted in there place with permanent plumbing and fills . . . .

                  If any of you guys want to share more info on methods you have used to carry more fuel - I'm interested in the details & opinions. ie - what type of container(s) were used and how you secured them and how you kept them out of the way. I'm close to talking myself into buying a bladder but am concerned about hassle and a safe way of tying 50 gallons down.

                    One other concern

                    I am always concerned about boat stability and center of gravity when I have more than 300 pounds (40 gallons) of fuel on deck.

                    30 gallons puts the macerator through hulls underwater and increases time to plane. 50 makes the boat seem heavy and a lot less responsive; I personally would be uncomfortable with more.

                    If the weight was lower; that would be a different story as it would improve stability as opposed to reduce it.

                      I would like to say i only carry extra fule when a over night is done for day trips no need for extra fule. also with the two 30 gallon drums DO NOT FILL ALL THE WAY PUT ONLY 20 GALLONS IN THE DRUMS i put non skid mat under them and strap them to the tackel centers and to the tower one on each side. drums can be found at loco carwash plastic soap drums (not good for gas)


                      good fishing

                        I do exactly the same as Shark Hunter, 2 drums lashed to the tackle centers and when empty, secured up in the tower out of the way.
