Day 12
16°22'S. 174°40'W
354nm to go

Well in the early hours of the morning we got to see our first ship in over 12 days, so there is still life out there, even though we could only see its lights at least it was something.

I had a rude awakening, this morning, with The Captain climbing over me to look out my side, and I could here a boat engine.
I jump up to see what is happening, and there is I guess a fishing vessel with guys hanging off it yelling hello.
Well at least that's what we think it was.
It was a strange site, honest it looked like a party bus, with the last of the drunken rebels still having a great time.
They motored very close around behind us, I'm thinking mace and taser time, but they just checked us out and off they went in another direction.
the Captain said he had been watching them on and off for awhile on the radar, and said they had gone off in all directions, then all went quiet and before he knew it they were right beside us, strange things go down out here in the ocean.
The rest of the day has been a bit boring, which was kinda nice nothing went wrong...hahaha
We had anther ship last night it followed us for about 3 hours, always about 4 nm behind, until I was just too tired to stay awake to see if it would come close.
So I wake up The Captain for his watch and ask him if it gets close to wake me.

Tomorrow is another day.
