Thanks for posting those charts. I was really curious to see what you were doing with the data.

It is rather humbling to see the position, course guestimates and speeds of the lows compared to the position, course and speed of Dauntless and realizing that some of the lows were simply unavoidable because they were moving so fast. Now I KNEW the weather moves faster than a trawler but it is a whole new lesson to see the wee little spot on the ocean about to be under a deep low and the best one can do is to try to move away from the worst part of the weather.
