Just curious - ever have any problems keeping fish in the lobster bag over the side (sealions?) Seems like a good idea if you don't have a cooler I'd just be worried about getting robbed.

Thanks Chris and all the others for your encouragement!
Unfortunately, my fuel flow gauge does not work anymore, so I do not have any precise mpg numbers but it feels like it has 20-25 more gallons of fuel compared to before the pilot house. Based upon this, I am guessing that my numbers are now about 3.5-3.75 nm/gal with a normal load of 2-3 divers and 20-25 lbs of ice. Previously, I would get anywhere between 3.75-4.25 nm/gal with the same load depending on seas. I would get about 3.5 nm/gal when loaded heavy with a full tank (55 gal) of fuel.
