2009 By The Numbers

Here are some numbers for our travels on FLUKE in 2009. I think that I have figured out a way to make the tables look better in blogger.

The fuel usage numbers include a lot of hours running the generator when we are at anchor to recharge the batteries. This means the MPG numbers are lower than they would be otherwise.

The days at dock on the trip north includes all the free docks and the lock walls where we tied up. We paid to stay at a marina dock for 2 nights total.
