Yea, that video clip of that race seemed to be the slowest race in history!! No way that Cary 50 would outrun that Chris Craft or that twin O/B boat, since the 50 was probably running low 40s the whole race!

Anyways, to answer the question about fuel consumption...the newer Cary 50 has twin 12V1602 TI MTUs coupled with ASD #12s and 28" 5-blade Rollas and burns at cruising about 80+ gallons an hour. We cruise at 40knots @ 2,000 rpms. The fuel tank has a 550 gal capacity. The Cary 70 has an 800 gallon fuel capacity with 12 cyclinder Deutz MWMs coupled with ASD #14s and 6-blade Rollas and burns around 100 gallons an hour at 36+knots @ 2,000rpms. The Cary 70 Turbine burns around 400 gallons an hour when cruising with the turbine on (same Deutz engs with a LycomingT150 turbine) since the turbine sucks about 300 gallons an hour when cruising.

Hope this helps!

Hello Guillermof, I was involved in a rerig of a 50ft Cary
on the West coast from 4 454s with TRS drives TO 4 Yanmar
6CXM-ETE side by side with Surface Drives and Rolla props.
Email me and I will send some photos, And tell about some
of the problems of this converison.

Mike-
What # ASDs were used in that conversion? Also, what speeds resulted with this conversion and do you know the dry weight of the boat after the conversion was done? That's an intriguing conversion, I've thought about what a Cary 45 would be like to put 2 Yanmar diesels with ASDs and a basic cabin layout, nothing fancy. I bet you would get some decent speeds, relatively good fuel consumption, a great range, and a very reliable and durable offshore boat.

Peter Pavkovich has one with 4 Horizon deisaels in it. Works great, and I'm pretty sure he's happy with it.

Send me a Email and I will send photos, My webtv will not
send or receive photos.
Oh the surface drives that were installed when I got to
the project would not work right and would not steer the
boat, We got some one finger waves from some sailboaters
who thought we were trying to run em down the first time
out.

I have a good friend that has one with twin diesels, cant remember the name, but they are based on the old ford truck motor with multiple turbos.

It has twin arnesons it tops out about 50, he runs it about 40 all day long, pretty good on
fuel.
