Re: Sailboat or trawler?

Are you referencing the Diesel duck? Seems pretty economical as just a trawler at 5-6mpg with 1500+gal tankage. Some "sailors " so little better than that average.

Re: Sailboat or trawler ???

There are alot of literature, and reports by the engine manufacturers that say otherwise, then again they still tell you to use an oil with an api rating from 1960...

Re: Sailboat or trawler ???

So running those diesels at 25% throttle for hundreds of hours is OK for them?

Re: Sailboat or trawler ???

Don't think he meant roll over as in all the way over. Were in Croatia too right now have seen a few Monos rolling badly at anchor. I'm sure there's better protected spots
