    Default Reason Raggies are so grumpy

    There is a thread on Scuttlebutt entitled 'Best buy this year'.

    It's two cushions made to resemble a seat!!!!!!

    If the cockpit of a rag & stick is so uncomfortable that they can get excited about a cushion and backrest no wonder they hate MoBos.

    You can, just keep the tank full and constantly top it up when you have used about 75 litres.

    You won't go very far but you can boast like a raggie.

    hmm 75L ... engine uses ~2.5Lt/hr at 7 knots ...

    So - that's 30 hours engine time - 7 knots (we can ignore the tide as it'll cancel out over the 24hours and the 6 hours would be a bonus as you'd plan it that way) = 210 NMiles ..

    How far do you get on 75 litres? Just back to the bar I'd imagine!

    Nah, the boat does that with consummate ease.

    Prefere 'King of Scots' blended whiskey myself.

    If anyone finds themselves in Cala d'Or give me a call and I will let you have a couple of sips.

    By the way fireball where is your Drinks Cooler Cabinet located. Ours is just inside the saloon sliding doors so that we can keep topping up our glasses from the perfectly chilled bottles whilst seated on the ultra comfortable cockpit seating.

    NB Just replaced our manservant Jeeves with a lovely young lady called Patsy who insists on wearing very tiny bikinis all the time.

    At 20 knots cruising speed we use about 260 litres an hour.

    No idea at 7 knots but I will look next time we enter the marina at the regulation 6 knots.
