Your trawler's range

*So, what's*everyone's trawler's range?* The Coot has two fuel tanks totaling 390 gallons.* That's easily enough to go from San Francisco Bay to Puget Sound non-stop.* Nevertheless, 99.9% of my anticipated trips will be under 200 miles, round trip.* It will be pleasant not to have to fuel frequently.* I don't anticipate any transoceanic trips by trawler; the Coot isn't designed for that and I have done seven by cruise ship.
