The 51 is probably the best marlin platform that I have ever been on, and if I had this boat back in my Vanuatu days, I may have doubled my marlin numbers. Doc Conkle’s Miss Babbie is powered by a pair of 660 hp Cummins and is the most fuel-efficient boat of its size that I have ever even heard of. Now 1,320 hp on a 50-class boat is not a lot of power — I know a lot of guys who have more horses in 40-foot boats. Miss Babbie is a 32-knot boat and will burn only 67 gph on the pins. At a comfortable 21-knot cruise, she is running only 30 gph. When we took a three-day trip from Pensacola, Florida, to Key West a couple of summers ago, we fished our way south, and in 69 total hours, dock-to-dock, we burned a total of 440 gallons. That’s an average of 6.37 gph, including the 15 kW genset. That is just mind-boggling.
