Forum Fund Raiser Status

Hi All,
I appreciate that a number of folks have asked about contributing to a forum fundraiser to defer the licensing and operating costs. I will be posting something in a month or two with options for contributing. I took care of all the initial costs of out pocket for now to ensure we are covered in the transition. More to follow in the New Year.
thanks
Steve

  • 32 Diesel usage

    To any of the 32 owners. I have the Cummins 370's and usually cruise at 24 knots. I cant seem to get a handle on how much diesel I am burning. On our last trip to the Baltimore canyon (68 miles from our inlet) we seemed to burn up a lot of fuel. On our way back after fishing for about 6 hours we had emptied the main tank (at least the gauge was on empty) and I transfered about half of the side tanks to the main tank. When we filled up we took 215 gallons. Is it possible that I had another 135 gallons in reserve ?

    Fuel Burn

    That seems to be in line with what I burn on the same trip to the Dip, approximately 66 miles. I have the 380 electronic cummins in my 32. I usually burn between 195-215 depending on how much trolling I do and how much I use the generator.

      I burn 280 on a canyon trip. Thats 90 -100 nautical each way plus trolling and the genny running from the time I leave the dock to when I get back.
