    Yep Toyota, like the old cruisers but with a turbo. Sorry 7mmwsm couldn't tell you fuel consumption other than runs on the smell of an oily rag trolling. It uses abit at 40knts.

    This has a 150 Suzuki on it. Burns about 11-12 liters an hour trolling at 8 knots. If you open it up it does 50 liters at 44 knots.

    The trolling or wide open?
    Wide open is about 5500 revs and you sure do get there quickly. Cruising speed is about twenty five knots and 4000 revs. Does a bit under a liter per nautical mile at that speed.
    It had a Mercury 115hp Saltwater series two stroke(biggest piece of shit outboard I've ever owned) on it when I bought it. That burnt 1.5 liters per km(not nautical mile).
    If I cut my trolling speed back to 6-7 knots it burns about 8 liters per hour, but I catch heaps of Makos. I'd rather burn a bit more juice and stay ahead of them.

    Just curious/interested as I have no experience with outboards, only jet boats. Our 7.6m alloy hard top running an ~370hp LS3 chev will burn through less than 30 litres an hour cruising between 25-35kts. Even on rev limiter doing 50-55kts it'll only burn 45 litres/hour. Trolling it will be a lot less economical though.

    had an optimax 115hp on a 540 senator economic cruising was 70kph at 3km to the litre at trolling speed for trout it was using about 1.5 times fuel the 5hp four stroke was.

    That sounds pretty good for that size motor.
    Did you do any homework on jet verses sternleg for economy?
    Or whether one is better than the other for attracting fish?

    100kph out of a nearly 8m boat is pretty epic!....whats the pump and hull?

    Stern leg was never an option, we use it to cross bars that are knee deep at low tide, and we’d never had experience with props, just jetboats, so stuck with what was familiar. For down here and crossing west coast bars it performs perfectly. It’s a seahouse hull, LS3 that’s been tuned & 212 unit with turbo impeller. We gps’d 101kph on a flat lake hawea in the early days with two people and no gear. Now 85-90 would be tops. It’ll comfortably do 80 with 4 people and dive gear, but it’s not economical to do so - but turns heads coming in over the bar or into the harbour on a flat day

    Very nice anything with an 8 gets my vote.

    As an aside how does the 5 knot within 200m of shore rule work on rivers and bars?
    Presumably not applicable to rivers or thousands of jet boats would be in the poo?

    Goes ok. Most people that come on it are impressed by its handling in the sea. It’s very solid but very nimble for a bigger boat, launching is a breeze, can handle it solo easy enough too. That was before a muffler was installed, it was quite loud and talking while on route was impossible.

    That river at low tide you can cross with gumboots on. We’ve only come in there at low tide a couple of times.

    Not sure of the legalities there regarding speeds over bars. There are obviously rivers that are open, certain rivers that have official ‘liftings’ generally only for jet boat association members, and rivers that are completely closed. That info is generally easy to find. In the cases of our bars here, the chance of actually seeing/meeting another boat is fairly minimal anyway, particularly at mid-low tide.

    That’s very cool, love the sound of the 8!

    I used to have one that could do this, never tried it though!
