Ditto, and amen to all that.

Have fun and be safe. What a journey... I too can't wait for details -- but don't spend so much time recording the events that you forget to live them.

I am trying to track Richard's progress and I am getting the following message. "There is no data matching the current Map Filters. Adjust the filters to display user data" and it is not displaying his location when I highlight his name and hit locate. Is anyone else running into this? Suggestions....

I'm not sure what the issue is, Roger, but this AM I couldn't get anything but the page itself...no data or map or menu (using an old Mac). About 40 minutes ago, I checked it again with my Galaxy phone and it showed he was in the middle of Cape Cod Bay. Maybe it's the browser.

Tried google chrome as the browser and it works great, with IE it does not bring his data up. Thanks for the tip, I can track him now.

By the looks of the ariel view, it might be a bit of a chop at the Provincetown anchorage, ….also looks like they got in a bit late. Wonder how they slept.

Yes.....I assumed that the ariel was recent....my mistake.

The fact that Richard is also a Meteorologist probably doesn't hurt their confidence either.

AN Update

We're waiting for the winds to turn to the SW. Should happen by morning, so we are taking this opportunity to put all the crap away that we ran out of time at 2 a.m. Sunday monring.

Will also use this stop to top up tanks for the last time, should only need 35 gallons (17 hours) and will try to squeeze in another 15, but then the last time I did that...

Now an incident that infuses us with confidence. Yesteday, noticed that NONE of our VHF radios seemed to be working. Our friend Richard was up early to see us off and that's when we discovered our radio issues. So the pilot house and fly bridge radios, not a peep, even after I had repolaced the main antenna and spliced the two leads. The two hand helds, dead batteries, one of them terminal. So I start charging the one and figure it's good enough.

No worry, how many people will we contact in the middle of the Atlantic, but still...

So this morning, after putting the finishing touches on the paravane system, I tackled the radio.

I had turned on the fly bridge VHF and set it on the bench seat, presumably to hear if anyone was calling.

First thing I notice today, there was no antenna connected to the fly bridge radio. Well, that's an easy fix

Then, I see a relatively new antenna lead going nowhere. Umm, I was sure this was the lead from the pilot house radio, also, clearly connected to nothing then what did I splice together

I look at the cables I spliced together, one was clearly new and other looked like 30 years old. Initially, I had thought I had spliced the two antennas together, but no, now I realized I spliced the new antenna to the OLD Loran cable.

So, 15 minutes later, we are better than before. I replaced the old antenna that was intermittent and now all the radios are working.

While it was not a show stopper, one thing I have learned in reading a multitude of accident reports, is that it is almost always more that one thing that causes the mishap. In my minds eye, I could see the report, "If only they had heeded the warning radioed to them. The Board is mystified as to why they ignored such a blatant warning..."

All's Well that End's Well.

Hopefully that will be my next post
