Day 9
16°20'S. 169°11W
667nm to go

Onto Fiji we still head, all systems are kinda still working although the AIS is still playing up, I am starting to hate this thing.
We actually still have really rolly seas and needed to make water so we tried the Heave to again, it still only kinda worked ok, and we managed to get a few things done.
Like making water, me cleaning up the much needed galley and The Captain having another look at the generator. Which is still not working.
That one is going to need repairing in Fiji.

As for my fishing well that went out the window for the last few days, although my line and rod were still out.
Today around lunch time my hand line caught what must of been a big momma, as The Captain was asleep on the side where it was I could not check it.
I decided to climb around the outside of the cockpit and have a quick look, but before I even got my head out the line snapped, one more lucky fish.
So I bring in the rod and no hook and half the lure is missing, I decided to leave that one.
And have rigged up my hand line again and just have that out now.
And it looks like other than the AIS nothing has gone wrong today.

Well tomorrow is another day.
