I guess there is something to be said for a smaller boat / 4-stroke engines. I have a custom built 16' center console boat with a 40hp Honda and a 5hp Honda for trolling. The hull design is similar to a 16' C-Dory. Well, after our annual 4 day Coon Island pilgrimmage, I went to re-fill my gas tank. Covered abou 40+ river miles with the bigger motor running back and forth and trolled with the five hp for well over 20 hours. Fuel comsumption......... 4.2 gallons!

We get about the same (2 mpg) on our 200hp Yamaha on our 20' Glas-Ply Not to bad for a big boat. That is crusing at about 30 as well.
