Yes on a single FL 120. According to the GPS our moving average was 5.5 nmph, some of the engine hours were warm up and anchoring. Our numbers were better before we got into New Orleans. In open water we were averaging 6 nmph at 1.4 gph. Once in the ditch we had current that sometimes helped and sometimes hurt. Overall it hurt the numbers.
