7am my watch

Guess what? Nothing has changed, man this is really starting to get on my nerves.

Oh actually somethings have changed now we have a broken float switch, which means the bilge pump has to be worked by hand.

Now how it works water comes into the boat from waves leaks etc, and when it hits a certain level ie... The float switch it automatically comes on and pumps it overboard.
Well that stopped working, so now we gotta keep lifting the floor boards and check the level, and the turn on the pump. Great this worries me a fair bit.

So I get up this morning and notice the davits that hold the dingy and one very expensive solar panel Is leaning over to one side.

Here we go again.
This a major concern, if we lose the davits we lose a lot, not to mention the davits themselves, it's an expensive piece of equipment, it has our main solar panel on top, so not only lose that but a big source of our power, than we have our brand new dingy, and it's motor, so yeah we have a lot to lose.

3pm my shift,

Well the wind has dropped a bit not by much, this is just shocking, I so want out.

The boys have tied down the davits as much as possible, and The Captain has made the decision that we will stop at Bermuda,
We have the motor going now to try and get there as soon as possible, but we still won't reach it until tomorrow night.

11pm my shift.

Well I tried to cook dinner which was a total disaster and is was only scrambled eggs, I fell apart, it's just way to dangerous to even try, honest I would rather starve than have to go back there again.

Well tomorrow is another day.
