Monday 21st July 2014

Well it's 6am, I'm sitting here with my eyes hanging out of my head, and am so so tired.

The Captain is back asleep and I can't wait for him to wake back up so I can have another sleep.
Neither of us got much sleep last night, with the rolling of the boat it was almost impossible to get any decent sleep.

But we did managed to solve a little mystery, about 1am or so, I noticed a white glow on the horizon, I watched it for awhile then woke up The Captain, we both watched for what felt like hours trying to work out what it was, we decided it must of been two oil or gas rigs but eventually sleep overcome me.

I had given The Captain orders to wake me when we got closer.
Well it turned out to be fishing vessels, or should I say Fishing ships, they are the strangest Fishing Ships we have ever seen, I so wish it was daylight and I could have taken a picture.

These guys are huge seriously they are like a little ship, with very very bright lights and no AIS, which is really strange, as per law worldwide, if your over a certain length you have to have AIS, that's Automatic Iditifyication System, well apparently Australia has different ideas. or maybe they are not even fishing vessels, maybe they are people smugglers, or drug runners, who knows, yeah we have been out here too long..haha

Well tomorrow is another day.
