The gas motor on the 24 foot sailboat that I race on gave up the ghost at one point this summer, so I brought down the Minn Kota and the old starting batt from the ForkenSwift.

(Brought them in the ForkenSwift - it was a clean/quiet transportation evening all around).

Managed to get out of the harbour reasonably well (2000 lb boat, against a light wind).

But we still only placed 4th out of 7 boats in our fleet.

Latest mods test: 15 mods = 15% MPG improvement: A-B test, 2007 Honda Civic 1.8L, 5-speed
Ecodriving test:
Manual vs. automatic transmission MPG showdown: Nissan Micra 1.6L
