Panama Lines in the water

April 20, 2011

Panama Update: We’ll talk about fishing later and start today with a shot of the Florida coastline last night at dusk…

Must be a beach! This morning and last night our sea-worthyness is getting tested as the seas are bigger and the boat is rocking…

as you can see the ocean is a gorgeous blue and the sun is bright but the sea has been hitting us broadside all the way down the florida coast…

We made a starboard side turn after the Florida keys and the waves are more or less on our stern…so far now everyone is ok but exhausted with the borderline nausea that comes with rolling non-stop in the open ocean. I’ve had a few questions re our course so here it is…

our current location as of 18:25 is… “CLICK HERE”

Despite appetites Chef Michael keeps pumping out tasty meals which have fast become the highlights of the day…it was fresh homemade burgers for lunch today…

Lindsay demonstrated some seaworthiness by cleaning in small spaces and still managing lunch…all those years of training on NIL are paying off.

Pierre got started (with Chris’s help) in the tackle room today, opening boxes and sorting lines, reels, rods and gear. We’ll be starting the rigging as soon as Chris has time to show us how its done down south…

Everything is so shiny and brand new…

Pierre was the only one who could focus on the dexterous tasks without feeling wheezy. By the end of the day we strung up a couple of hand lines and threw them off the back…

We’re all hoping for some fresh fish!
Frank, Bud and Neil kept an eye on the lines after work today (as if work for them ever stops).

Bud was keeping his eyes closed and trying to anticipate the bite by using the force…supposedly he does the same thing when guiding at the Clubhouse (can any of his guests tell me if that actually works?), it hasn’t worked here so far. Frank sends a special shot out to his mother today; “Hey Ma”… she’s following his (and our progress)…FYI he’s doing a great job and doing you proud!

Thats it for today, we do have an AIS system on board but its not working consistently, I’ll report back when it is.

Good night from somewhere north of Cuba.
