its 2120zulu. SOG 6kts. COG 259mag. Wind is dead astern. We are sailing wing and wing. Which works pretty well. Though I wish we had a whisker pole. Thought it wouldn't be needed on a cat. But it would be helpful.
The weather is nice, though sailing downwind is HOT.
Sorry there haven't been any pictures in a while. I'm waiting until we get in to port with internet access somewhere. Our satellite service is outstanding, but it costs a fortune to post pictures through it on a regular basis. And now and then, when I get the bills, I remember that I'm not employed :).
I just put the fishing lines out again. It has been a while, since the last fish we caught was good sized, and our freezer was pretty full. So we'll see what we get this time. Mahi Mahi is always nice, but I'd love to catch a good tuna. Lots of tuna varieties, though, and some are not that great. But the good ones--outstanding!
We haven't seen any sign of civilazation in days. No ships or other boats at all. Though now and then we see a plane or a satellite at night. And we have been in SSB Radio contact with some friends. We speak to a boat named Barefoot every afternoon. The are about 500 miles south of us, heading to the Austral Islands. We also spoke to our friends on the Clementie yesterday--they are still in the Galapagos. And every evening I check in on the Pacific Seafarer's net, which is a ham radio net that keeps track of any boats sailing the pacific that want to check in. They also log the positions of the various boats, and can provide a way to get in contact with boats at sea. Boat positions can be see on the "yotreps" website. google "yotreps" which is a phonetic verson of Yacht Reps (or reports...). Some boats need to be looked up via their ham radio call sign. Mine is KK4FWI.
All is well here, and I hope it is there as well....wherever there is....
