New Alaska Sea Grant Publication: Saving Fuel on Your Recreational or Charter Boat
ANCHORAGE, Alaska--The cost of fuel is high, but that doesn’t mean boaters have to leave their vessels at the dock. A new, free publication from Alaska Sea Grant describes how boats consume fuel, and details innovative ways to improve fuel efficiency while still getting full use of the vessel. Saving Fuel on Your Recreational or Charter Boat is the latest in the Alaska Sea Grant Sea Gram series of informative bulletins about Alaska marine and coastal topics.
Learn how to calculate fuel consumption and range; minimize inefficiencies in boat fuel use; choose, set up, and operate a boat engine for best fuel economy; and operate a boat for peak efficiency. The publication's focus is on planning hull boats, but displacement hull motorboats and sailboats under auxiliary power are also discussed.
