    Question Jet Boat Questions

    I just got a 16' fiberglass runabout with a 351 Cleveland engine and hamilton jet outdrive. I haven't had it out for a trial run yet, but was curious what the average fuel consumption per hour might be with this setup. Any guesses? The previous owner said it would do 47 knots tops. Is that realistic?

    Thanks

    Depending on how it's setup up and how you use the throttle. Anywhere from 7-14 GPH. Again depending on how the boat is setup, 47 knots is easy. Faster if it's tuned.
