Default Fuel Burn 1990 2700SCR 5.7merc

Hi all. Just took possession of a 1990 2700 with a 5.7 merc. Engine runs great and the boat is in good condition for her age.

I'm trying to get a feel for what rpm / speed folks cruise at and how much you burn at your cruise speed. Also, do you tend to cruise on plane or off?

I will be doing most of my boating in the Eastern Lake Ontario region.

I realize everyone's experience will vary but any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Welcome aboard Liam.

I'll leave the comments to the experts on this forum. There are a fair number of very experienced Maxum owners here.

Welcome aboard

I have a 2400 and typically cruise around 3600 rpm and burn 8-10 gph. Varies by number os passengers and gear.

Liam - mmwjr (Mike) is one of the experts I mentioned. He loves lobster, so stay on the good side of him and promise him a lobster dinner when he shows up at Collins Bay Marina to visit.

I guess you've figured out that Liam is now the proud owner of "isdoo", my much loved 1990 2755SCR. Wonderful boat, but found that it was getting to be too much for me with my house/landscape/boat/hobbies/Charlie my dog taking up all my time.


This picture of me at the yacht club cooking lobsters is the one Mike refers to. I boiled up 125 of the creatures that evening.


My best regards to the good folks on this forum, and all the best. Thanks for the help over the years.
