We're having a great Easter cruising around Darwin harbour. On Friday afternoon we locked-out of the marina and motored around to anchor off Cullen Bay. We took the opportunity to do a speed trial of the engine...
- 2000rpm => 5.4knots
- 2200rpm => 6.0knots
- 2500rpm => 6.5knots
- 2700rpm => 6.8knots, stern digging in and some black smoke
We had a great evening enjoying being at anchor rather than in a pen. The boat felt alive! We tested the HF radio and connected to Winlink Sydney, Winlink Melbourne, Sailmail Sydney and Sailmail Brunei.
