Fuel economy

I have a 86 32' Flybridge Sedan. In general, what seems to be the most economical speed/RPM to cruise in open water?
Secondly, My engines seem to top out at about 4000 RPM when on the water. I thought they should go to 4600 RPM. Any comments or suggestions?

Anchors

I recently bought an 86 32' flybridge sedan. Its anchor has a bent shaft and does not look adequate to me. Are there any recomendations as to the size (weight) and type to get. The areas I sail have sand ore mud bottoms.

Boat is listing.

I checked the bilges and there is not enough in them to cause that list. Anyone have any ideas? Bill Schnei...

Re: Unleaded?

Thanks. I realized that I had put unleaded instead of leaded gas after I had posted.

Unleaded?

I recently purchased an 86 32' fly bridge sedan with the 318 Chrysler engines. When looking thru the owners manual I noticed the it recomemded unleaded fuel. You can hardly find unleaded fuel anymore. Do you guys (and gals) use unleaded fuel or add leading additive?

Thanks.
