So if I'm reading this right, about 333 miles per month. That's about 41 hours motors per month @ 8 knots. Right at about 2 solid 24 hour days of motoring per month. But from your discription, it's more like 2 days a week, for about 5-6 hours a day average.
That makes sense to me as I was figureing that I might motor
one day a week, during daylight hours. But like I said, I have no idea how I'll react when I REALLY don't have to be anywhere. I'm WAY too used to having a "schedule".
Actualy, lorenzo, I REALLY like your boat, and have wanted a vessel like yours since the moment I saw a photo
of it. I just don't know if I could afford the fuel
for a vessel that sized. In truth, now I know I can't afford it! Right now there is no way I could make it work to spend aprox $1,000 per month in fuel. Still, it's good to dream!
