  • Range Mako 20

    So, I have some questions about range out of a Mako 20. I have a 1975 20 with an carbed Evinrude 200. What do you guys think I should be getting as far as range? I have had the boat since mid-summer and I will say she drinks fuel! I like to run to near shore wrecks and I usually come home on fumes. 14 nm from inlet and about 1nm to inlet. Running between 20 and 22 kts. Any input would be greatly appreciated

    depending on sea state you are probably luck to get 1.5 NMPG with that engine while cruising. Probably not much more trolling or idling. My 20c with a 150 carbed would touch 2.7 NMPG in flat water but if it got rough and you had to slow down or play the throttle it would quickly drop to 1.5ish.

      Same hull, I went from approx low 100's miles range on a 2-stroke 140, to nearly 200 miles range on a 4-stroke 150, both Suzuki. Tank on this hull is 44 gallons.
