At this point we have traveled 357 miles. We refueled upon our arrival yesterday with 216 gallons. Before bedtime we would run the generator for a couple of hours to recharge the batteries and run it again for a bit in the morning to make coffee and heat the boat as mornings have been a bit cool. Even with running the genset twice daily we are averaging 1.65 miles per gallon. Frankly, that’s pretty darn good for a boat that weighs 40,000 pounds or 20 tons. I attribute this to the rebuilt fuel injectors and having the valves and throttles adjusted. Our engine advisor is a fella by the name of Chris Harden, The “Cummins Whisperer”

How about meeting us( Janet & I) in Savannah for a boat ride???
Oh yes, probably not happening since it takes 2 days just to reach Owensboro on the water.
