Weds maybe? Not sure. Windvane broke in the middle of the night. Boat no longer has the ability to steer herself. Hoping we can remedy in Nassau before the haul up the coast. Wind also died. We’ve been motoring for the better part of 5 hours. We should have just enough fuel to get us half way there. That’s 442 miles by a rhumb line. Today was boat shower day. It’s nice to not be sticky. Also, nights have gotten colder. We’ve both been standing our watches in winter coats. Weatherfax down. Skymate down. Windvane down. Autopilot shot. This is one hell of a shakedown cruise.
