Hi all! We have just purchased a 1985 Harbor Master 370 37' houseboat. We are getting ready to take our first cruise and try it out. It has a VOLVO Penta Volvo 260 Volvo 260A Single I/O I don't know what all these mean but you probably do. Do any of you have any idea what kind of fule mileage we can expect. Thanks, goldcoins
At full throttle, no worst than 2 gals per mile (10 mph?), at
idle speed maybe 2 miles per gal. Were you might run at about
2500 rpm and 7/8 mph maybe 1 mpg?
Best mileage will be when the boat is making a minimum wake, this
is provably at about 1500 rpm or less and a speed of less than 4

get an air card for your laptop from your cell provider and you can go on line where ever you have cell service. I have one of these through work and i have never had an instance where i couldn't get on line.
