Looks like the pump doesn't show that 4th digit. Add a grand.

He was probly at a truck stop. $120 of diesel here is less than 40gal. They wouldn't shut it off for that little.

Actually I was in an area that the General Public would not be allowed. You would never see it but being as where I was standing I caught it...

Seas continued to build as we pushed on. The darkness combined with the driving rain and pounding spray made it difficult to accurately estimate the actual wave heights, but they were running several feet above the top of our T-Top with 3 foot of breaking whitecaps on top of that which would put them at 12 14 with an occasional larger wave. For the next two hours we continued forward was fast as we could possibly push it but we were only able to make about 16 18 mph.
Chris, what an adventure! Thanks for letting us take part vicariously.

Here in the Pacific, those are pretty typical conditions: the ocean sets the speed, not the throttle, and that speed is usually somewhere between 15 and 22 knots.

Those videos of people making Catalina in 20 minutes or less are taken on very, very calm conditions here on the smoothest of the island channels: Catalina Channel. Right now, its only 2-4 feet with 7 knots of breeze in that channel, and 8-10 feet with 20 to 25 knots of breeze by Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, and San Miguel, where we like to go. And that's a typically calm day, at 9AM.

That's why I'm greatly downsizing my powerplants. Just can't use 70 out here, so 800 HP is a total waste. 250HP is a generous overpower offshore here in Southern California.

Carcrash - thanks for cheering us on! I wish we hadn't lost our power inverter right before we started the race as the streaming video would have been exciting to watch once we started hitting the heaving weather. Next time we run, we will make to have our streaming video system up and running so everyone can not only watch our track, but see real time full motion video.

PStorti/Catmando - I wish the fuel was $1.95 a gallon!! For some reason the pump didn't show the 1 in front of the 800 bucks!
