Wow, you were asking about the blue a few days ago. Well, we found blue and clear sky and sweet sailing at 6 to 7 kts.
Last night we spent surfing in the middle of a squall. Never a dull moment. Got the boat up to a little over 10 kts.
This is more like it!
Mike checked the undercarriage and could find nothing inhibiting rudder motion. The friction and noise must be due to causes inside the post/bearing housing. He has opted to continue on to Hanalei. Randy has also resumed his course after rendering assistance to Mike’s inspection efforts.
Jacqueline has a fouled rudder and Tortuga is diverting to render assistance. Conditions are very light. Mike will go into the water as Randy stands bye.
