aaronwindward: A lot of our time was made with the motor. I had to accept that I wasn't nearly adept enough to keep he chugging along at 5+ knots with anything but the most perfect winds, and we only had three days to get her home before we had to be back at work.

It was loud, but, fortunately, our diesel is fairly economical and using 10 gallons of gas was a much better deal than having a hauling company take it up for us.
