Much of the above also applies to fuel
. We keep extra diesel
and k1 in 5 gallon jugs. Underway we lash the jugs to the lifelines
over the scupper ports
. When we leave it on the mooring
for a while we leave the cans out-of-sight in the cockpit
. We use a lot of fuel
for certain river trips - otherwise use very little so adding an extra permanent tank didn't seem to make sense for 1 or 2 trips a year. Likewise, no need for k1 to sit in tanks
all summer when it's not needed.
I have maneuvering 'issues', so it's nice to take the dinghy
to get water
instead of trying to coax my full keel
, barn door rudder
and small engine
into tight spaces. Of course, with a Mac 25 that's probably not an issue.
