Re: Electric Conversion log for Kahleesea

Sean,

Thanks for the great info. I really appreciate it. No idea why I though the water would be a constant, but when I read it was dynamic I had a serious "duh" moment. OF COURSE it's dynamic. It's WATER. Too many years of car work, I guess. Anyway, thanks for snapping me out of that and pushing my knowledge just a little bit farther forward.

Looks like I should be making my most efficient point cruise, (say, 5kts) and leave about 25-35% more on top for emergencies. That sound about right?

Did you manage to sell your atomic 4? Seems like people either love or hate them.

Good on you for getting a scrapper and doing a total reno. That's a lot of work. I doff my hat to you, sir.
