I had thought about the stainless rail caps, but never feel the need now some 10 years later. http://www.glen-l.com/phpBB2/download/file....

Wow!!
I didnt think of the Great Loop as so much more than a boating adventure.
Your trip is more than a boating adventure, it is a vacation/adventure/cultural trip.
And yet you still have a long portion to go.
What else is ahead??
OMG!! What a trip!!

12,000lbs @ 1.7gph is pretty good. at your weight and speed you into the bigger prop diameter/gear ratio area. can't very well get there with a outboard.

Curt,
Are you on Active Captain ?
I heard from a master captain it is cool.
It originated on Garmin, but, it can be a smartphone app and work fine.

Re: Travels and Adventures of "Curt's Dream" a True Grit design-The Great Loop

There is a thread under the Hankinson design section with pictures of my build. We have been watching the river banks for alligators but so far none have been spotted.
