Ten years cruising!

It does creep up on you! We began cruising in 2008, we've logged 35,880 nm, taken on 19,720 gallons of diesel fuel, accumulated 6041 engine hours and have seen lots of sights. Quit work in 2008 and never looked back! More info and photos on Maerin's blog.

That is really great. Over 1.8nm/gal. And do you intend to keep going?
