It's amazing how much distance you an cover reaching at 10-12 knots, too!!

The only thing that confused me was, you listed your wife as crew but did not mention her in the account? Did I miss something?

Thanks for sharing.
It's funny how you can take for granted what is... well, granted. She didn't catch on fire, end up in the hospital, or spend hours holding a cooling hose together, getting tragically burned. However, she does get motion sickness, and lamentably, that often leaves her out of the action. She displays great courage making these trips.
