Duet completes her Pacific crossing

by Nancy and Ron 1 Feb 22:27 UTC

Duet has arrived safely in Australia, thereby completing her crossing of the Pacific Ocean, which began almost two years ago in Mexico. The planning began long before that, but we actually left terra firma on March 17th, 2017. We arrived in Brisbane January 9, 2019, having traveled some 8,492 nautical miles (10,200 statute miles) from our departure port in Mexico. During this journey we spent 46 nights at sea, the longest leg was from Mexico to the Marquesas, which took 17 days.

We added 1,402 hours to Duet's mighty Lugger 6108 main engine, and 3,142 hours to her resolute Northern Lights generator. The generator provided us with water, air conditioning, laundry and other comforts of home in many remote anchorages during our journey. It also gave us power at the dock, when we needed more juice than Ron's carefully designed foreign shore power system could deliver. During this journey we burned 7,570 gallons of diesel, of which about 2,350 went into the generator and the remaining 5,220 kept the main chugging reliably along. Overall, the main averaged 1.63NMPG or 3.72GPH. The generator averages.75GPH.
