May 5- day 25

There’s 250 miles to go. For days we’ve been moving at least 5 knots and it’s been smooth and perfect and in the right direction. yes.

Right now, we are going 7.5 which is like the fastest possible for this boat.

Hull speed (max speed) is calculated by this:

the square root of the boats waterline x 1.34 = max knots

My boat is 41′ and its waterline is 36 ft I believe. So the sq root of 36 is 6 X 1.34 = 8 knots
