Still motoring

Still motoring. We've motored about 50 hours since leaving Bermuda on Tuesday morning. 80 gallon tank plus 30 on deck. Gallon an hour . You do the math. Light South head winds. Should be getting a backing wind to the east later this afternoon. Mostly south of 22 deg N. Lots of hits on the fishing pole but no one is staying for dinner. Up every 4 hours draining water from the Racor filter. I am still getting about a cup of water every 4 hours. Will continue to monitor. Pancakes and bacon for breakfast this morning. Last night was Friday so it was homemade pizza ala Mike D. Sorry no beer.

In addition to the fuel consumption issue...your speed is effecting your fishing. Try changing to the lure to something with a lot of flash. Btw...if you hook up a barracuda with this...don't eat it. However...this might find a king fish or if your really lucky a wahoo.
