Default Thinking about a non-stop Atlantic crossing . . .

Just need a proper hard point (got a call into the mothership), plumbing should be easy.




If only I knew someone who could help me read the data plate.



Flogger tank, from Craigslist, FYI. Probably gonna become a cooler for hangar parties.

Using this: https://www.metricmethods.com/SI_russian.html, I'd say that's a good guess.

Sharing a 12 man stateroom with snake eaters has its benefits (I can also start an IV and field repair a nearly silent outboard motor)!
