Well caused some interesting thoughts and data thanks to all I understand the comment about the suggestion that you should run at higher revs for the good of the engine what I do if running for a long time I up the revs for an hour or so then drop back – as a final comment I must make note we do have a sailing boat performance to factor in, wind permitting, and that should also pull the revs back I have about 1350 miles to run for Portimao Portugal so with sail full tanks and say 100lts on the deck I can comfortably get into a re fuel early down the Portugal cost but I do plan to be well off shore. I am also retired and can wait for wind – I once sat waiting for wind on a return trip from the Azores for 5 days bit boring but interesting wild life watching!!!! Thanks all
