It's my understanding some also had what I'd label emergency only set ups with hydraulic systems set up to operate off the generator. Have no idea what he has, if anything.

I had the same question. I read this on the Kadey Krogen site last night :
Power and Performance
The standard Krogen 42 is propelled by a single, freshwater cooled, 135-hp Lehman diesel engine, turning a three-to-one reduction gear. At a cruising speed of 8 knots, her range is close to 2,000 nautical miles. Only five boats were built with twin engines. For boaters who might be reluctant to put to sea with a single engine, Jim Krogen designed an optional emergency hydraulic drive that was belted to the propeller shaft and powered by and optional 12-kilowatt generator. Other emergency propulsion systems have been developed as well.

I wonder what modifications Richard did make to Dauntless? The last note I looked at (9:06 AM, PDT), showed the elevation at minus 59'. Does the KK 42 have any underwater capability? Could make for a smoother ride!

I just requested an update and it looks like they're about 400miles off shore,if I am reading the map correctly.I can't figure if that's good time or not.Seems ok seeing as how they expect 13 to 15 days at sea.

I'm kind of curious as to why the more southerly direction if heading for the Azores? Could be weather dodging, etc. I guess. Wow... what a trip!!!

I think their course selection has in part been selected due to prevailing wind/waves.

Definitely following with great interest.

I agree, they have some fairly large seas to the east of them and as they move south they are not only dodging the 10 to 12 foot seas but they are getting into a position where they can ride some comfortable easterly seas for a good part of the trip. At least that is my guess but I am very confident that Richard has a plan to this approach. Certainly holding my interest and waiting to see when he makes the east turn. My guess would be within the next 12 to 24 hours. Watch as soon as I get done typing this he will make the turn.

I had the same thought as you after checking the weather report.If anything happens,they can always run west to Bermuda.I do hope they get into some good conditions to move them along to the Azores.

This is too cool, ocean voyaging at home. This one might beat Hendo's record for replies before its over.

Yes - there's a few weather interesting weather patterns ahead of them.

I like this site to get a good broad sense of whats going on.

They have made the turn and now headed ESE. My guess is that they will pick up a knot or more when the following seas settle in, in about 12 hours or so.... I have to admit the ocean voyaging at home is fun and not near as hard on the system. Just watching them I am learning alot!

If I get any messages I will pass them on if siestakey has not been able to because of his travels. Siestakey, get the pilot to do a low flyover and give him a wing wave salute for all of us.

I find this especially interesting as most of the crossings I've followed and read about have been more southerly. We have always assumed ours, whenever it comes, will be to Bermuda and then to the Azores.

If you input their coordinates into Planet Earth, it shows they're 340 statute miles off the coast of Nova Scotia. Could that be right??

It seems like they should be over 500 miles by now.Where are you finding there coordinates?It's not coming up on the Delorme site for me.It also looks like they're heading a little north east.

I found their coords and going by google's mileage key they are just over 1200 miles from Halifax,NS Canada.That seems a little off.

On Delorme click on their last location "arrow" and then click "more" and the Lat / Long will display in the white box. You can then convert it from digital format and enter it into Google earth.

Even if they could make 8 knots they're only going to cover 190 km per day and that doesn't even take in to count all the variables. wind, current, course accuracy, etc.
