Carolina Angler fuel burn

Does 28.5 gallons an hour for one 7.4 engine sound about right in normal seas?

(MerCruiser 7.4 MPI - 454 cid 310 hp 28.5 GPH)

Thanks

Re: Carolina Angler Build

I have a donor boat, a limited budget, and I am retired (no income)- my wife has about 5 years left before she retires. I thought I could put together this boat (with 454) and mess around with it here in the river. If I ever made it to salt water I would contemplate a re-power at that point. I am in...

Re: Carolina Angler Build

Just section off some voids and fill with foam? Don't know that much about it- haven't googled it yet...

Re: Carolina Angler Build

Geez, I'm glad I am not the only one who has some un-built boat plans laying about...

I don't have much room either- I built the "Monte Carlo" in my garage diagonally....

So, do you feel the Carolina Angler is a capable "offshore boat?"

Re: Carolina Angler Build

I am on the Mississippi River which I can eventually get to anywhere... especially Key West! I like the idea of the little cabin in it. One could sleep overnight without the need for a room. If anyone wants to offer their thoughts on the reduction gear size I will need for a 300 HP 7.4 L velvet driv...

Re: Laminating frames

Thanks for the great answers!
Looking at the Carolina Angler or the Sea Angler- I have a great supply of 7/8" oak- making gluing cheaper- than buying thicker stock potentially.
Just considering all options!

Laminating frames

In order to make my frames thicker (white oak) would it be ok to laminate 2 boards together with west system epoxy to make the frame member thick enough?
Thanks!

Single engine Sea Angler (wing motor)

I am interested in putting a single engine in the "Sea Angler." Do you think I should consider a wing engine? I am not really building this to be a sport fisher- but more of a occasional dive boat- plus a boat my wife and I could run around the Bahamas in... stay overnight in it and save ...
