We live near the San Juan Islands and are considering the purchase of a 34' LRC.

Please share your fuel usage for this boat. Thanks!

I have a 42' Californian LRC, built in 1977. It has twin 130hp Perkins diesel engines and the fuel tanks [4] hold 500 gal. It's sweet spot for best fuel burn is at 6 knots.  At that speed I may burn 2 gal/hr. Consumption goes up geometrically as the speed increases, maybe double at 7.5 knots and more at 9 knots. Compared to sport fishers it is an extremely efficient and economical way to cruise.These are the original engines.
