Ben, I have firefox too and I did see the update of heading due north at 0, but the next updates went to 6.27 and then 8.6. Like all of us it was a scare...... Program or maybe an adjustment or something.....

Well, with 14 Atlantic crossings in my time, I can say way to go. The smallest boat I did a crossing on was 450 foot and sometimes I didn't think it was big enough. 42 foot powerboat. Wow, now I know why I like the Kadey Krogens so much. I wouldn't do it again but hopefully one day I would like to make it down island.

I think I might have 20 or so crossings, all less than 250 ft. (Boeing)

I'm not sure what the blip is on DeLorme with Firefox. My old Firefox and Safari won't even load the data. I'm checking with a Galaxy phone, and so far, no issues.

He may have been stowing his paravanes at that time.

I guess at 12' down, you lose any wind resistance? What's left remaining above the water line? Fly bridge coaming, mast, spreader lights.

It is great to see them going so well and making up so much distance. Keep the favorable seas coming!

So far the weather seems not too bad...hopefully he'll close on the Azores long before this Tropical Depression area of interest 93L will tread up that way.

Richard is doing well this morning, I assume.
Sent him a message about the many good wishes from trawler forum, told him the post count was up to 216. He replied, "Thanks"

Why is all this in mph? Just annoying having to mentally convert to knots. Makes him sound faster though.
