much better now
01 April 2012 | Solomons to Majuro
I was shaving at 0645 local time this morning when there was the loud squealing of the reels as both went off with great vigor at once. John began calling for help, so I ran up. To our great disappointment, the reels both went slack at once. WTF? we reeled the lines in and both our favorite most productive luers were gone. Yikes! After many tears and gnashing of teeth I replaced the end fittings and reloaded. I then baked this awesome bread. They call me Cpt Rob" baker Man "you know. John and I then cleaned and repaired the broken winch-just a jammed broken spring. We then caught this amazing 10 kg( 36 lb) blue fin and spent the rest of the day filleting and cleaning up the mess we made. Chef Prudome alias Johnboy then prepared the most amazing sashimi followed by massive delicious tuna steaks. Needless to say, we are feeling better and limping along making slow progress to Majuro.
