Here is Troika in Houma, Louisiana about 6 months after Katrina and also a photo of a*wood boat impaled on a piling in Ocean Springs, Mississippi when the water receded.* They had a 22' surge with* 10' to 15' waves on top of that.* The devestation was unreal.* But they dug right in and with a mobile home as the harbor masters office, they did a great job of making me feel right at home.
Anyway, Troika burns pretty consistently .5 GPH at 6.33 MPH (by GPS), except when I entered the Mississippi after coming out of the Harvey Locks in New Orleans.* In that case I was hitting 9 to 10 MPH, fastest Troika has ever been, with me at least, except when on the trailer.* She has a 36 horsepower Volvo, 4 cyclinder engine.
Troika*has a 25 gallon aluminum tank and I carry two 5 gallon jerry cans.* A couple more jerry cans and I could almost make Bermuda. Ha
