Wide Open Throttle for a few minutes en route to Racine.

They say it is healthy for the turbo charger to run at full throttle on occasion.

See us accelerate to 1700 RPM, about 10.1 Knots in this video, above.


Back down to normal… The chart plotter says our ETA to the next turn into Racine is 12:45. About a 5-hour passage today… 3-1/2 hours to go!.

The big arrow points to the port of Milwaukee, whose skyline dominates our view of Lake Michigan’s west shore from here.

The other area highlighted on the chart plotter pic is a big construction area on our starboard beam. Three tugs, cranes, lots happening there… even on a Saturday! There is no port there, so now I am curious what is going on.
