Hi Buddy!What evidence do you have for that?

Ah. My dear colleague - you mistake concern for care. We concern ourselves with the weighty matter of the Seeker, but we care nothaha. 240 pages of it.

Circling back to this. He has four tanks of slightly more than 300 gallons volume and like a 20 gallon day tank. Then he has several irregularly shaped tanks that were created when he welded a plate over the lead poured in the keels. He loaded the lead bars into one of those smaller tanks and I don't believe he put fuel in on top of it. I'm fairly certain that those smaller tanks don't have any fuel lines or pickups and that they are essentially a jerry can welded into the bilge. Early on one of their concepts was to go but $0.25 a gallon diesel in Venezuela and sail the ship full up to more popular cruising grounds to sell the fuel at a considerable profit, that may have been the cargo he had in mind that caused him to chose to build an origami monohull instead of something more practical for the home builder like a warram.It's possible 1 or 2 drums in his truck is for dry goods and/or water. His stated diesel capacity is not clear. In his weight est. video he stated 3.2tons diesel, which at 7lb/gal would be 914 gal. However he also mentioned 4 tanks of approx. 300 gal each which would be 1200 gal. He added lead bars to some tanks for trim to cure a list, which would reduce available volume. Whatever it is, I have a hard time imagining him ferrying just one drum at a time to fillup when he seems unwilling to buy it at a dock. The duggfuckery method of bunkering currently involves a pickup truck and winch. Should work well at distant shores. Probably been buying off road diesel.
