One can fit a huge tank on covetor, run a few combat drones as well as a warp disruptor. Flown as a support vessel with a combat fleet of friends, it can lead to some amusing kills. Memphis Baas
Fit your Ice Harvesters on your Mining Barge/Exhumer. If you can do it, fit Ice Harvester Upgrades. The Mackinaw has a +100% bonus on the yield of Ice Harvesters, but a -25% duration Penalty. The penalty is reduced by 5% fo every Exhumers skill level. So, if you have Exhumer V the Mackinaw has the normal cycle time.
Apr 19, 2012 · Personally, I’ve always thought that, while they are by no means perfect, the cert skills that apply to ships really are a good baseline to get something usable, and not just a triple-size-frigate.

Each barge was created to excel at a specific function, the Covetor's being mining yield and mining laser range. This additional yield comes at a price, as the Covetor has weaker defenses and a smaller ore bay than the other mining barges.
Database▸Ship Database▸Mining Barges▸Covetor. Of the mining barges, the Covetor has the greatest yield whilst having the smallest ore hold and the least tank, making it unsuitable/impractical for solo mining but shine in boosted/protected fleet mining.
I logged in with a fitted Covetor, a handful of other ships, a few hangars full of items, and 10-15 million ISK. I could do advanced things, and do anything in 0.5-1.0 space. I made some money, had some fun, and got really really bored of all the travel and mind-numbing mining.
