Re: Klondike Build

How far do you plan to go in that ship? Matt, we have a few bucket list trips planned but first few years will be spent locally getting familiar with systems & handling. Fuel consumption at 8 kts should be less than 2 gph (32 hp by Glen-L notes; 20 hp/gph diesel) so with 890 gal should be able ...
