All is well onboard Hekla. We are enjoying consistent good sailing weather, 20 knots out of the SE. The swells are getting longer and somewhat smoother, so the ride is not too bad, unless you are down in the galley trying to cook. Unfortunately it has been cloudy all day and still a bit cool, so no tropical sunbathing yet. We logged 209 miles on our second day, a very good average. Our trolling line is out, the iPads are in regular demand for movie watching, and the guitar gets passed around. We change watch shifts every 3 hours, the night watches are of course dreaded but necessary, and especially freaky during this new-moon phase; the boat moves about and makes noise but we cannot see anything outside. We have seen only one ship, a container ship, in 50 hours. Dinner tonight will be chicken with peanut sauce over rice noodles. Mahi or tuna, still hopeful....
