Small money...

In going over the overall expenses on "So It Goes" the other day I realized that since installing an electric drive that our costs of running the boat have gone way down. Someone once said that the internal combustion engine on a sailboat accounts for 25% of the running and maintenance costs. Off hand, I'd guess that is pretty much right on the money.

In fact, the maintenance costs for the electric drive for the last couple of years has been zero dollars... Hey, call me crazy but I think that's kinda cool!
