Yea... THAT is a big yacht!

Want to know what $4.00/gallon fuel will buy? A new contender for world's largest private yacht. That's what. Man oh man... She's a big girl.

That reminds me of those ships that people can rent space on and cruise year round in luxury without leaving the boat.

Just remember the oil $$ invested in this "boat" (ship?) every time you fill up your car or your boat.

Fill 'er up! (Here we're picking up $1 million of fuel in Victoria.) At least the "fuel dock" comes to you with the help of two tugs.

Since that thing holds 1,000,000 liters of fuel, I thought I would see how long that much fuel would carry me at 7 knots. That is 264,200 gallons. For me, 66,060 engine hours, 522,534 miles. If I run the engines 10 hours a day, every single day, I can cruise for 6,606 days, or a few days more than 18 years! I hope to live and cruise that long!

Oops! Better scale back the cruise a bit, I forgot to calculate generator time.
