myboat.com.au has received many emails from boating enthusiasts in relation to the following question.
QUESTION: How can you calculate, or relate boat engine hours to distance (km’s) travelled ?
If you break it down into the following:
- Engine Hours is how long the engine has been running…at any speed.
- Km/h is how far a vehicle (not boat) has travelled at different speeds.
The two can’t be the same as current, tides and wind has a impact on the true result.
However; the engine could run 24/7 and the boat never leaves its mooring or the marina.
So, we believe there is no answer to this.
Let us know if you feel we have it wrong !
