I like the party value math but there will be times when one engine slow is fine and the party is the ride like downriver in the Columbia River Gorge. Up River I am getting killed.

For the following calcs I levelized costs of diesel and gasoline.

"Your Coot": At 0.25 pgnm = 4 nmpg = 100 mile trip on 25 gal fuel X $4.00 per gal = $100. At 6 knts = 2 - 8.3 hr days of cruising.

"Our Tolly": Can get up to 2.75 nmpg on one engine at 6 knts; which would = 57 gals (a little more than twice your fuel use and twice the cost) on 100 mile trip in the same 2 - 8.3 hr days of cruising.

However, I go for the gusto on 100 mile trips. Doing 17 knts and getting 1 nmpg for 100 miles = 100 gals X $4.00 = $400. And at 17 knots = 5.88 hrs cruising. Which means that for $300 extra fuel dollars I get 10.78 extra hours at anchor or at dock for party time and my trip is completed in one long morning. So...the extra $300 can be divided by the extra 10.78 hours of party time which means my party time is worth $27.83 per hour!

Everything is relative... now isn't it!! The good ol' trade off factor comes into play!
If it's the journey and not the destination, then clearly there's more hours of enjoyment with the Coot for the same distance traveled. And who wouldn't want more of a good thing?

You're, we're all correct. Everyone gets a chicken dinner with crab and shrimp appetizers.


I often cruise at below hull speed... but when I feel like getting some place fairly quickly - I hit 17 knots plane!


That said: I do not get Mark's Coot's 4 nmpg. Best our Tolly can do 1s 2.75 to 3 maximum nmpg at same or even lesser approx. speed of 6 knots on one engine of her twins.


Single screw FD hull wins hands down for economy... planing hull wins in other ways!

We usually travel at hull speed but will kick it up to 20 knots to make happy hour

The guy is a University of Tennessee fan. Even their blood runs orange.

When are you painting your hull P V? You know VOL NAVY and all.

Hi Al - Always fine to hear from you!

In my several meaningful creative-business and personal-life gallivants through-out my years (started in 6th grade and do not plan to quit! - lol)... I've been a man of "means" more than once... I'm sure you understand what that means.... Which factually means I've also seen the side of little means and by all means understand what it means to live at that level of means too. Saying this by no means is intended to color any level of means with other than the color it really means! As I write this an email question just came in from an ASU-LightWorks regarding what I stated in a recent Business Plan I wrote actually means. This means that I will need to end this fun post regarding "means" but in no way means I will not again address this interesting topic regarding what it all means!

And, I mean it!

This of course means that our brains actually have the means to dissect "means" and maybe come to a plausible conclusion that means means something!

Happy Means Daze! - Art

Orange blood all year round, orange flag during football season for the Vol Navy. It would be even better if we could win some games.

Should be easily seen in a rescue situation.

Peter, now that's a classy looking yacht!
Reminds me a bit of the "Gatsby 39", a boat designed by James Backus (known for the Lord Nelson Victory tugs).
