    I only know the full throttle formula .....1/2 a Lb. of fuel per HP per Hr.

I would take dry suits along just in case you end up in the water. It'll kill you in minutes otherwise. Are you sure you don't just want to tow it on a trailer? Pay for the diesel and I'll give you a hand.
    Thanks for the offer. This run is just for fun, I have a trailer and truck. I will take a Dry Suit Two Marine Radios. A cell phone and a distress beacon.

    I plan on taking my time and if get's rough I pull in and call for the trailer.

    1) fill tank before leaving
    2) run till about empty
    3) pull in some where and fill tank again
    4) repeat steps 2 and 3 until trip is completed.

    Best advice yet

    You forgot to add buy lot's of beer and food.

    I ran in a Top Gun today that had 675 Chiefs. The flow meters were saying 50 each at 4000rpm.

    I think that resembles a garden hose...

    Do the math with todays gas prices............

    Merc used to use hp/12 = gals/hr. Need to know what hp you are developing at a particular rpm to use this. If you run it against your dyno numbers under load I think it looks fairly close.

    My question is WHY?????
    If your boat has a sail do you ride a horse to the ramp?

    There was a time when I had more sense than cents Hell i've had as many diesel boats as gas. In 1978 I had a 25' CC with a 636ci turbocharged Caterpillar.......wait a minute, that was sick to........maybe things haven't changed

    For the love of the sport!

    Not really just sounded like fun and I told my buddy's over a few beers that I was going to do it. Now if I don't I will get a lot of SH*t.

    It's not at speed run, just going to take a few days off and clear my head recharge the battery's. If it gets too cold or too rough I will pull out.

    Work has been tough as you know over the last 18 Mo and I don't have enough time to take a real vacation.

    I am sure most or all of the ice will be gone by the 3rd week in April.
