Does anyone have any experience with 4 cyl perkins diesels? I was wondering what the approx burn rate would be in a 32x12 novi. The boat does 8kts and the owner(old timer) told me he ran and hauled for 10-12 hour days on 10 gals...that sounds way low to me.

I plan on fishing it down in Fla for swords 20-30nm from shore(one long slow ride). This isnt my ideal boat but the price is really right and if this thing sips fuel like the owner is saying it means more money in my pocket at the end of the day.

Any input on the reliability/maintenance on these perkins would also be appreciated.

Just had a short phone conversation with the seller to try and get the basics and set up a meet. Didnt get the model number of the perkins. Will give him a call back tomorrow to get the particulars.
