We hope to make along the Michigan Coast late tonight and refuel and get some good sleep. We will let you know how it works out.
I woke this morning (actually, several times during the night for ship sighting and course changes - the joys of being a Captain!) to see the wreck of the Nordmeer. I am now sure that 14 years ago it was a commercial vessel and not the Nordmeer that took down our forestay.
The one joy of using the engine is we have abundant hot water so we all took showers this morning. That is one advantage of being on a cruising boat.
