351 Idle Oil pressure

What sorta numbers are folks seeing as their hot idle oil pressure?

My brother asked - I don't think its inappropriately low, but I'm used to cars that hold 3 bar.

Alot of people use 10 psi for every 1000 rpm. My boat has been running about 20 at idle and50+ cruising. Might would go even higher if I could fix an oil leak...

10 psi/1000 rpm is a baseline minimum spec.
