COLD BAY is heading north to Alaska. Today is our third day of travel, first 2 days were half days because of issues with the Garmin chartplotter the first day, and bad weather (35 knot breeze) on the 2nd day. But today all cylinders were firing and we did 205 nm's burning 143 gallons. We averaged an approx. 18 knot cruise, could have averaged a little faster speed, but a couple places the sea conditions and thick fog slowed us down to about 15-16 knots. But when conditions are good, a cruise at about 2,400 - 2,450 rpms feels just right and is smooth as can be. Full of fuel, a crew of 6, all our luggage, tools, supplies, and food, we can still top out at 24.5-25 knots at 90% load.
