After a tumultuous start everybody seems to have settled down finally. Shaheda and Terry seems to have been hit the hardest with the dreaded sea sickness. Me a little less so and John did not even seem to register that he was supposed to be sea-sick.

We had our first breakfast this morning as a group. John's experience is really telling as he seems to have the knack of knowing when to get what going to make it comfortable for all. Last night he introduced us to a card game called Bullshit. It is a silly game that requires some bluffing and cunning but it passes the time.

At the end of my watch today showed me some of the intricacies of operating the instrumentation in the cockpit. Thereafter he proceeded to give us a "class" on fishing rig setup. He has his own way of setting this up with a combination of bungy cord, nylon fishing line, light rope and a wooden washing peg. All of this is tied to the back of the boat and when the peg jumps off the line apparently all hell breaks loose.

Until now hell is still in tact and I am getting a little queasy typing this note.

Regards from all aboard.

Until next time.

PS. Hell just broke loose, but so did the fish. Well another long fin tuna lives to tell the tale.
