I was reading the manual looking up some info for a fellow Nonsuch owner on about the Standard Horizon 180i GPS receiver we both have the other day. I'm not one who tries to use all the bells and whistles of a newly installed technology all at once or rely on it exclusively. Especially when it comes to navigation. I start with the basic use and expand from there as my curiosity increases. While looking up some information about routing I came across the function of the "trip log" that can be configured to be placed on the various data screens of the 180i. Hmmm, I thought since I installed the 180i GPS unit the same time I installed my electric propulsion system in 2008 and I have never reset it. I was curious how many miles BIANKA has traveled since I installed my electric propulsion system. Turns out it is 856 miles. I would have guessed less but, there it is. Certainly, I probably did more sailing than motoring during those miles but, still the Thoosa 9000 electric propulsion system has preformed flawlessly and with virtually $0 dollars in maintenance costs since the installation. I could not say the same if I still had the old diesel on board.
