Actually the first of the week leading up to Mathew I was gonna try and run it down but after it has sat for 6 yrs the fuel
sending units are shot and misjudging fuel
onboard I ran out a little better than 1/3 across from Chesconessox Creek headed to Stingray point for quick haul and bottom clean, I had an extra 17 gal in jugs that got me back to just off East Point, by the time I got straightened out I missed my quick haul window due to them switching to hurricane
hauls so I got it back to Chesconessox and went back home 455mi on that Wednesday, let Mathew pass and came back up and got it to Davis Warf in Belle Haven for the quick haul and bottom clean on Monday and left out Tues with 325 gal capacity (2main, 3aux tanks) full. Well as I said it has sit 6yrs so halfway across the bay my starboard main runs out and I'm pumping muck out of my other 4 tanks
that clogs my filters, luckily I had another 30gal in jugs on rear deck
for backup and that got me to here, but with the motors stalling with the muck the port starter hung engaged a burnt it up before I could correct it. So here I sit again, at least I'm on the other side of the bay now, just not headed south like I should be.
