Don't even think of worrying for about 13 more days. He probably forgot to change the batteries.

Well after nearly 8h without position update I am worrying. Last time there was a position gap it last 2h and just requires a reboot.
Well maybe he met a marmaid and decided to go fishing
Anyway I hope to get some news before tomorrow.

It's very, very exciting to read this thread.....I can't imagine doing this in anything smaller than an aircraft carrier! May God watch over Dauntless.

If I remember correctly the trip over he went nearly a day or so without update.

Finally got news from Richard!

Do not know why inReach was not updating as it was indicating to update every 10 minutes. He is fine, just a rough ride for the 7th day of the trip.

Looks like our Richard like to keep us in suspense!!!

Go Richard go!

Elevation -12.24 feet doesn't bother the worriers?

Richard's Inreach should be plugged into power most of the time. On the trip to Ireland, the Inreach ran low/out of power once or twice. We would warn Richard if the Inreach was getting low on power.

If one clicks on the circle positions on the Delorme website, and open the popup to show "more", there are two columns of information. The starboard column has Heading: Batt: and Lon: For some reason the Batt: field is usually empty, meaning no text is shown at all. But every once in awhile it the field shows up. For instance on Dec. 15, 2016, at 11:52:45, the field is shows and the battery was normal.

Dauntless does very well in a following sea, she just scoots right along. Even is a beam sea she just bobs and rolls comfortably. Depending on how one handles rolls. The GRIB reports have been reporting 2-3 meter waves so it is interesting that Richard is seeing seas much larger than what was predicted.

Later,
Dan

Nah, Dauntless was under 30 feet at one point so 12 feet is nothing.

Some things you can depend on in life. Fish are bigger, golf shots more spectacular, and seas much larger.

Now, is interesting that the largest wave ever recorded record increased this week to 19 meters off the coast of Ireland. Note, there have been larger reported but not recorded by buoy measurement.

Not saying Richard isn't accurate, he may be reporting the absolute largest whereas the forecasts are the largest 1/3 and then mention absolute largest, or like the trucks in one's mirror they may appear larger. Wave heights are always interesting. We talk to others on days we're out all the time and their waves were 6' while ours were 3-4'. Not like any of us have tape measures on the waves. We look at buoy reports and sometimes we're surprised.

I don't think elevation is working fine as if you check the history of his passage he was at more than 1100 feet sometimes... Well maybe big swell

Just received some fresh news from Richard.
Ocean conditions are still the same and they are bouncing along.
Fortunately the Krogen takes it in stride.
He checked his fuel burn and it is lower that what he expected initially.

All good news!
