This tracking thing is sweet. Looks like you're making good time.

Why not just use one of the icemakers?

Great boat. Can't wait to see it here on the lake.

what kind of speed are you running? It looks like you're really moving.

I figured you'd do 1.14 mpg or so. Hmmmm, that's only 1.04. Perhaps the tank wasn't full to start with.

My guess is, without a strong current, you'll do 445 miles on your next fill.

Don't speed now.

That tracker has got to be one of the coolest things ever. Combined with Google maps and the hybrid view that ranks right up there with velcro and spandex!!

Congrats on the new " RV"

If you're going inside in SC up to L. River inlet let me know. There are spots there that will end your trip in a split second.

Here's Dave Thomas' boat (yup Wendy's) after he did $1mm in damage. Had it my marina for 8 months
