Best of luck on this heck of a vacation!
Looking forward to more of your adventures… Have a safe voyage!
Thanks Frank. We just passed south of the Farallon islands and the weather and sea conditions are great.
Herman, thanks for the dropping by to visit us at Jack London Square. It’s always fun to meet someone who shares our interests and it was very nice of you to bring a bottle of wine.
Safe travels guys!
Is this a vacation or the start of the Big Trip?
All the best to you both. Hawaii looks forward to sharing the Aloha when you arrive.
Good hearing from you Yair You asked if this was vacation or the "big trip". A bit of both. We’re still working full time on at least the early part of the trip and exploring on weekends. But, there is no question that its a big and exciting trip and we’re having a really good time.
Thanks for the greetings from Hawaii Goeff. We’re looking forward to arriving
I noticed that you are sometimes in the 8+ knot range, what RPMs are you running and GPH is that? Have fun hope to make the run in 2014!
Roger you are correct. We are often up over 8 its. But we have down as low as 5kts for brief periods. It is the negative impact of wind and current. Right now we are getting a great ride with winds 15kts on the which doesn’t impact speed, very low and period waves, and a substantial push from very favorable currents.
We run the power up and down to maintain a constant burn rate per mile covered. Right now we are applying 120HP and running at 1800 rpm. RPM doesn’t help much in comparison in that different boats have different props, different reduction gears, and different props.
The way we travel is we set a required burn rate per mile. This causes us to run faster in favorable condition and slower in unfavorable ensuring we get there well within our fuel budget.
ALOHA! Jennifer and James,
We are excited to know that you have arrived safely after an tremendous trip. Time to clean up, rest and enjoy some HAWAIIAN TIME.
Welcome to the islands. Looking forward to hearing about your travels here.
