Cool Bob. I wondered when you were gonna do it.

Put me down for 25 cents per mile. I expect to be handing you a $200.00 dollar donation at the Orillia run next month.

Our fuel capacity is 400 gals. Consumption at 65 mph in seas 3 ft. or less will be around 55 gals./hr. That will be 340 gals leaving about 60 gals to spare. Where we could get into trouble with fuel, is if the seas kick up. Our consumption will jump to closer to 60 gals. / hr. or 370 gals. total, leaving only 30 gals of spare. I will likely carry about 25 gals of extra fuel for insurance.

I remember you mentioning this when I first met you in Feb. in Keywayden and was hoping to see this soon. Best of luck and be safe. Will you have anyone from Yanmar with you?

Thank you kindly, Sean. Even if the Bank of America agrees to replace most of the stolen money, Jennifur has lots of other school related expenses that we have not been covering. She works part time while in school and is working this summer as well, before going back to Edison College in September. We have been covering her tuition and book expenses only. She pays for her own transportation to and from school every day, and I have often thought that might be an area where we could further assist her.
Thank you,
Bob

Mastry Engine Center in Sarasota is the Yanmar dealer. They just don't come any better than Adib Mastry. They have been great to work with. They would have put someone on board if we felt it was necessary but I'm not expecting any problems. They will fly to Key West or Cancun if needed. We can run 50 MPH anyway on any 2 if there were an engine, drive or prop failure. We are taking spare props and some parts.
