well from his last two position updates it looks like he can actually hold a northerly course in those seas.

as of right now I'm showing him to be 21 nm from baltimore and 33 nm from casteltoenbere.

If he can hold that heading he will be in port soon!

From Dauntless 2:43pm,est:

I got your msg after I had sent mine.
The sea state stinks. With 25 to 35 kt winds all day, the seas are as big or bigger then yest (Yesterday)

Spending a half hour on the fly bridge earlier dealing with the bent pole, gave me a ride that I would be afraid of in Coney Island

I'm dragging along very slowly, only making 6kt, when I should be going 7+ I'm heading Castletownbere, where a dock awaits

I'll make a video do you see what I'm dealing with every minute.

Looking at trawler forum, it reminds me of a football game, the running back broke free, heading for a touch town. The forum is in the stands cheering you on.

3:50pm, est
You are also now seen on vessel finder.
Leaving work, going home to watch my favorite show, YOU!!
Be safe in the last few miles!

I can barely text on my danged smart phone sitting in a chair that ain't moving. Richard is somehow texting on the E Ticket Ride he is on!

I am sure my kids could text on the Dauntless E Ticket Ride but I am not sure I could!

Later,
Dan

Using the scale on VesselFinder, 2"=50km, looks like he's got about 45 miles to go, as the crow flies.

My Admiral's phone has voice recognition on it. Maybe Don has one of those so he doesn't have to type. I know for sure, it's already difficult enough for me to get it right while I'm lounging in my arm chair. If I ever do a crossing (doubtful), I'll make sure to have that voice software.

I have the voice recognition on my phone, works great till things get noisy, like engine, howling wind, boat bumps from nowhere.

Just took a Google tour around the harbor. That ain't no Long Boat Key Moorings, Larry. That is a working harbor.

By the way, don't be surprised (or panic) if he drops off of these internet AIS tracking sites. He'll show up again later.

They all have different dead zones, as evidenced by vesselfinder tracking him now, and marinetraffic not tracking him now. May change the other way around later.

He's turned a bit to the NW and slowed to under 4kts. Got to think he's slogging through it now. Hope his paravane is not giving him more problems.
