Aloha Westward Fans.
Yesterday and today were very uneventful days in the Pacific. The patchy clouds, blue water, bright sun and a periodic squalls would make for a terrific mural in your living room but it is everyday here. Wheel watches continue, oil change for the Perkins and a fuel pump prime because of an empty fuel tank is the call for the day. Reading, Sleeping, and a tasty bill of fare make the passage acceptable. We have halted the trawls because of the weather and waves we find ourselves in, Roger's deadline is coming up so time is an issue, we'll see.
Today we has a Windrose empty the frig ham regatta that had all the flavors that Bill could muster. Cold seconds later in the day were still excellent.
We are trying to head 063 mag. but the wind is on the nose so we motorsail tack towards home. We hope for sailing winds tomorrow so we can shut off the Perkins and save fuel for the final leg. We'll see. Ice is still being produced so who knows what that will lead to.
