Sea Dory Fishing Space and Fuel Economy
I will be fishing off a rented 20 Foot Sea Dory (with sleeping berth and twin 50hp 4 stroke hondas) later this month. Does anyone have a idea what sort of fuel economy it will get and what the normal fuel tank size would be? I do not plan on running further than Pony Cove so range will not be a problem just wondering about how much gas I will be buying.
Also I suppose that 4 people can fish with a little work off the back of this boat any recomendations on fishing off the back of these boats will little fishing space?
My Brother -in- Law has a similar setup (22' with twin 50's) and I think he gets 4 gph @ 4800 rpm @ 21 nmph. Figure 12 gallons round trip to Pony Cove. I think you have a 30 gallon tank, but double check that.
