Four Winns V408 performance chart very misleading!!!
I got my issue of Boating Magazine today and on the cover they showed the new Four Winns V408 on it. Nice looking boat, nice galley, not nearly the room I'd expect to see on that boat, but the thing which prompted me to write is the performance chart... Now, when I see a new boat, they are normally talking about half tank fuel, half water tank full, and one or two people.
This boat only had 1/8 of a tank of fuel, no water, and on top of that only two people on board. They dare to post numbers and fuel burn numbers which I'd guess are supposed to make it look good. But when i run, especially on long trips, I'll run with 3/4 to full tanks of fuel, full water, and with 5-8 people on board. Do that, and then you'll have some numbers to post.
DO IT OVER BOATING MAG! Test it again and get back to me!
