Not that I've noticed.

Pearwind, where do you keep your Seahorse? We live on the Chesapeake between Annapolis and Baltimore, which is where ours will port

She's in Seattle having dodads installed.... stabilizers, electronics, watermaker, airconditioners, washer dryer. We'll leave her there for summer ship her back here, that being the Texas Gulf Coast, in the fall so in the winter we can go coconut hunting. My main crib is in Terrell, Texas I plan to live on the boat half a year and stay on land half a year. I just retired so kind of playing this as I go. Was on the bucket list so I pulled the trigger after reading and researching off and on about 4 to 5 years.

I like the kind of playing as you go. The reality is you don't know until you're there, how much time on the boat vs. land works for you. When we started we had no idea what mixture we'd like. We found between 6 and 8 weeks away, we were ready to be home. Then 3 to 4 weeks at home and we're ready to cruise some more. We let our feelings dictate, not a predetermined plan. Now, I guess our brains and bodies have adjusted and as we approach six weeks we start thinking about plans at home. Then as we approach 3 weeks at home, we start getting excited about our next cruise.

Did you ever have fuel priming pump issues with your boat? The fuel system is so complex and we have twin Cummins 370s in this one. I think we're stopping in Savanna to have the priming pumps serviced We have an air leak someplace on the port side either in the racor or priming pump

If not operated recently, I prime my single engine using an electrical pump that came with a fuel-polishing system (no longer used) and the thumb-pump on the engine. It's all immediately within reach on the starboard side of my engine compartment.
