Day 8

05°32'S.  094°27'W

2659nm to go

6am my watch.

And we are still at it, man this rough weather is taking its toll.
The Captain is snoring away beside me, as he is desperately trying to catch up on some much needed sleep, he has been woken up so many times these last few days, to help settle this boat down, not that there is much you can do.

We got an email, from a friend, Alex, who gave us a weather update, it's looking like this lumpy sea, is going to stay with us, all the way.
That's really not what I wanted to hear, it's shocking and I am not at all sure I can handle another 3 weeks of this.

I caught another Mahi Mahi, today well actually two, but once again it was way too rough, and the first one got off, which was good, the second one I could of landed, I actually had it right at the side of the boat. But it was getting dark and I'm still not feeling real well, so I just let the line back out and hope, it got off

It seems that the flying fish are the trick to catching fish.
They land on the boat all the time and die, so every day I just grab one put it on a hook, and throw it out, works every time.

The only problem is, they smell so fishy, serious, I have never come across a fish with that strong a smell.
So I keep a packet of baby wipes up here and wipe my hands afterwords works great...hahaha

These baby wipes are great I use them for lots of things, and a quick freshen up with one when you can't have a shower works great too.

So once again darkness is creeping in, the Captain is asleep, I have a rum cake baking in the oven, and dinner heating up on the stove, and all is great,  then the gas runs out....far out now I have to wait for The Captain to wake up, so he can change the gas bottles, and I was hanging out to try a piece of cake.

Well tomorrow is another day.
