Just bought a well used Morgan
51 built in '80..Getting ready for cruise
and Virgins all the way to Port of Spain
. On the first eastward leg what speed speed can I expect to make under power. I expect that we will have to do a lot of motoring against both wind
We have a Perkins
6 354 which is supposed to produce 130 hp. Also what kind of speed can i expect close hauled when the wind
allows heading east and south east.
Also what is fuel consumption
rate at 1800-2100 rpm
. I have been told that somewhere in that range is best for extended cruising
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
