When we ran wot for a bit I was faster which surprised me, Gibsons have a flat bottom and will plane. I knew I would use less but had no idea he would use over twice as much. We both ran our gens probably a equal amount of time, it has been 3 years since his boat got a fresh bottom job. It's my guess that it has a fur coat now and that's why his speed was low and fuel use so high. I thought his fuel use would've averaged about 1 mpg.

I don't like making plans for the day because the word "premeditated" gets thrown around in the courtroom.
