Swimming in the middle of the ocean is odd. The first time I stood at the top of the ladder thinking, 'what happens if I just keep going down?'. The water was 13,000 feet deep and intellectually I knew is was no different than 13', but still ...

BTW, we kept someone on board to make sure there were no sharks and boat didn't decide to sail away. In terms of danger, going on the shore of Australia is much more dangerous with sharks, saltwater crocodiles, and poisonous jellyfish.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
