Day 15

08°44'S. 108°40'W

1843nm to go

2.30am 

 I came off watch about 2am, and could not sleep, no matter how hard I tried, and it didn't help that the boat was rolling so far from side to side it was crazy.

In the end I just gave up, and let The Captain, lay down to sleep instead.

Just the usual been happening, nothing much to write about only that I started on the leaks in the saloon area.
Around the windows, and hope that, may stop the leaks  there.

And surprise the email is working finally, it took 4days this time, although we could not get all them through at least it was something

 Fish of the day, well I managed to hook a tuna, I was so excited that it was a different fish....haha

I have no idea how heavy this guy was but I could not reel it in.
The Captain took over and even he struggled.
We eventually got it to the boat, and it was already dead, but it was too heavy to lift in the net.
The Captain and I swapped and he tried to get it in,  yeap you guessed it, it came off, but this time we were left, with part of its mouth and gills, was gross, 
It just proves how heavy it was to rip that away, and the good thing nothing gets wasted in the ocean, it will be another fish's meal tonight, although I was tempted to jump over board and catch it, as I watched it float away.

And once again night crawls in and we really have no idea what time it is.
Our clocks are still set on Panama time, but it's still pitch black at 8am and still light at 8pm, so yeah we need to work something out here.

Well tomorrow is another day.
