I'll assume the 3200 is a typ and you meant 2200rpm....if not...something is broke.
Unless you are running with a strong current and a strong tail wind and very lightly loaded......there is NO WAY you are making 28mph/24knots at only 2200 RPMs.
On a typical long cruise like you are taking you...
A few pointers. They have no CATV....bring dvds. If you have a digital TV with a glomex, you will be able to pick up a few OTA channels.
Don't bother packing an alarm clock....the fishing/charter boats will wake you up plenty early.

James. If you don't mind, let me poke a few holes ...and I mean no disrespect
First...Are you using your tridata for distance?
Second....tell me you're not using your tridata for speed info too!
I've wiggled and tweaked that tridata,.....on three sepearte vessels that I have personnaly owned...
Not for nothing, but if you get better mpg at a higher rpm (assuming similar conditions) then your motors and your entire system are running more efficiently, and hence under less load. If you run under less load you burn less fuel to get from point A to B. Your time between rebuild is...
Alex....that's the magic of 'Average'. When you only have 'Average', your numbers will be all over the place. The guys with the 480CEs have flow meters. Their numbers are spot on.
I've had tanks that I "averaged' 20 gph and I've had tanks that I've 'averaged' 8 gph. It all depends.
