Indeed. That "bulb thing" was a major advance in efficiency. Pretty much all large ships (and warships) have them these days.

It's all relative (and variable). It has 900+ horsepower and weighs around 35 tons, so I'm pretty happy with the 1 mile / gallon performance we get around 11 knots. if needed she will do about 18 gallons, but check the reserves, it's significantly worse than 1MPG at that speed.  I can get up to ~2mpg if I slow down further to about 6-7 knots, but that feels really slow.

you really should spend more time reading the internets. lots of good info there. 

 
That makes me think that you can likely get up a pretty good speed if you head through those oil spills.

It's my last full day of "medical leave." I predict a farewell nap in the afternoon. {#Sleep}

Other than that: dishes, laundry, Weezie walks. Prep for my friend who is coming this weekend. {#War}
