MarineTraffic shows you stopped. Hope that's an AIS glitch.

Must be a glitch. 7.4 knots. Feeling bold with the diesel cost down and cruising at 1500rpm now. Not exactly a Nantucket sleigh ride but the extra little bit on a 2000 mile trip does add up.

Long day. 17 hours this time of year is a bit of a grind. Shoveling snow off the boat while underway was a new experience for me! I did manage to install new LED under cabinet lighting, replace head switch, rebuild recessed light guts, problem solve two other recessed lights, write up two listings, isolate fuel pump issue, solve external engine oil leak, etc...
